Local Area Details

A LITTLE HISTORY OF FORMIA
CAPSULE (CAPOSELE) HISTORY
There is historical evidence to show that Formia was inhabited as far back as 500 B.C. by an ancient Italic people known as the Volsci.
These people fought the expansion of Rome, but eventually yielding, they became Roman citizens in 338 B.C.
Under Roman citizenship Formia developed as a political center due mostly to its strategic location on the Via Appia.
In the Republican Era and during the days of the Roman Empire, Formia became a noted seaside resort for the Roman aristocracy.
After the ravaging by both Goths and Vandals, the town was finally destroyed by the Saracens in 846 A.D.
The survivors of the destruction moved to the protected town of Gaeta and other neighboring villages. What remained of the area were two villages-Mola and Castellone.
The name of Formia was then lost for 1,000 years until, in 1863, under the rulership of Victor Emmanuel II, during the unification of Italy movement, the two villages of Mola and Castellone were joined and the ancient name of Formia was reassumed.
A TOUR OF FORMIA
In Formia, as well as in Gaeta, one can find many interesting and historical sights, and the "finding" can be as much fun as looking at the site.
For these excursions you may want to have the following books tucked under your arm for more complete information:
The Appian Way: A Journey and Archaelogical Latium.
A good map of Formia (From the Azienda Autonoma Soggiomo e Turismo) may help also.
CICERO'S TOMB
The first section of Formia is on the Southwest side of town.
Turn off the road SS 213 just as Vindicio Beach starts and head towards Itri-
When you arrive at the T intersection, turn right onto SS 7, the old Via Appia.
Watch for the tall cylindrical brick tower on your right at road marker 137.3.
This is the Tomb of Cicero {Tomba di Cicerone}, or at least it is a monument to Cicero.
There is much controversy over whether this is one or the other.
Cicero was the famous Roman orator, politician and philosopher who opposed Julius Caesar and hated Mark Anthony.
Cicero's hatred for Anthony cost him his life at the hands of Anthony's thugs and he died in Formia in 43 B.C.
The mausoleum is supposedly open on occasion, but we have never found the gate open, a bell to ring, or a person in attendance.
If you want to enter, we wish you better luck!
There are other mausoleums along this road.
One is that of Cicero's daughter, Tulliola, but we have never found the actual tomb.
The mausoleum we have found is for an unnamed person.
This second mausoleum is interesting due to the difference in style from Cicero's tomb.
To find this tomb follow along the Via Appia towards downtown Formia.
Go past the entrance for the Italian hospital, Casa del Sole, and look for the road marker IV-140 on your right.
Above the road on the left at this point you will see a polygonal tower-another Roman mausoleum.
SAN REMIGIO FOUNTAIN
Proceed down the road for only one-tenth of a kilometer (look for road marker V-140} and on your left find the Roman fountain of San Remigio.
You can see the well-preserved stone arrangement called "Opus quadratum," the low through, some remains of the decorative works on the fountain, and some of the original paving stones of the Via Appia.
(You may also find a few Italians washing their cars at the fountain.)
TOWER OF CASTELLONE
Further down the road , but not as far as standa, there are two signs-one is for the Castello Miramare, the other for the Torre di Castellone.
The signs are difficult to see as they are hidden in bushes and not always turned in the correct direction.
So look for more reliable sign "Tequondo Ginnastica" and turn there.
Follow the road up to the first piazza named "Piazza Santo Erasmo".
In this piazza is the Torre di Castellone, dating from the fourteenth century.
(You may remember that Castellone was one of the villages left after the Saracens razed Formia).
There is also a church in this piazza, dating from the fourth century, called Santo Erasmo.
Follow the signs out of the piazza towards Santa Maria della Noce (a church built in the tenth century) and wind your way up to the Castello Miramare.
This is currently a restaurant and hotel, but it was, as its name implies, once a castle.
There is a panoramic view of Formia from the road leading to the Castello.
PORT OF CAPOSELE
Traveling down into Formia you will want to see some of the Roman and medieval remains along the water.
You can start by going to the Caposele Hotel along Vindicio Beach.
Continue pass the hotel on the road which follows along the water. Park when the road ends and you will find yourself looking at the Port of Caposele with remains of villas and Roman port structures. If you look above the port structures on your left as you begin walking into the port you will see a glass-enclosed building. You can get up to this point by going straight ahead and entering the doorway. After climbing the circular stairs you will have a nice overview of the port and you can get ration of capuccino, too!VILLA RUBINOThe next stop is on the main road (SS 7, Viale delI'Unita d' Italia) which runs pass Standa. Park near Standa and walk along the sidewalk on the side of the street opposite Standa. Below street level, in the area under a tower, you will see some arches.
Here lies the Villa Rubino, one of the famous Roman villas, popularly called Cicero's Villa.
Cicero did have a villa in Formia, but there is controversy about his connection with this villa.
Unfortunately, the villa is not open to the public, but if you can manage to find someone to show you through, you will find the remains quite extensive.
Sketches of the villa can be seen in Archeological Latium, a book that we highly recommend that you buy.
THE WALLS OF NERVA
Continuing down the main road pass the Marina di Castellone, you will find remains of the walls of Nerva (Mura di Nerva).
These walls, parts of which are pre-Roman and parts of which are from the Republican time, are remains of the city walls, which ran up to the fortress overlooking the port.
{Nerva, by the way, was the emperor following Domitian and preceding Trojan.)
ROMAN FISH HATCHERIES
Continuing even further along the road, pass today's port entry, and across the street from the Bar della Rocca, as the sidewalk skirts the water, you can see in the water the remains of the Roman fish hatcheries.
The moss-covered stones, between two cement walkways jutting into the water, indicate three main sections.
Plans for the fish-breeding ponds can be seen in Archeological Latium and will give you a better idea of what you are looking at and how the ponds were used.
TOWER OF MOLA
Most of you will be aware of the large tower on the waterfront in Formia.
This is the thirteenth century Torre di Mola (Mola was one of the small villages which remained after the ninth century destruction of Formia by the Saracens).
Some very interesting stories relating to Mola and the tower are to be found in The Appian Way.
A Journey, as well as an engraving showing the tower as it was in the Middle ages.
ROMAN PORT OF GIANOLA
One last item of interest before we leave Formia is the little Roman port of Gianola.
This is a little tricky to find, but if you are persistent you will locate it.
The port is 10 km away from old Gaeta, at the turn from the main road SS 7 at the curve towards Scauri.
(There is a sign here for the Porto Romano).
Look for a narrow dirt road on the waterside of the street.
There are, on occasion, crude wooden signs indicating the turn-off.
One access road parallels the white concrete walls surrounding new apartment buildings.
