Photographer's Note

Sellano
Sellano is a hilltop castle that rises 640 meters above sea level, in a dominant position on the valley of the Vigi river, a tributary of the Nera. Much has been thought about his name. The toponym is in fact of the type that is technically defined as prediale, that is linked to a praedium, to a landed property. The predial toponyms are derived from a name or a Latin noble followed by the suffix of belonging -anum: over the centuries, despite the passages, the trace of that property has been preserved, reaching up to the Middle Ages and then up to us . The Spoleto historian Severo Minervio identified the inhabitants of Sellano with the Syillates mentioned by Pliny the Elder in the third book of his 揘aturalis Historia.
