The archeological location of Roselle dominates the fields of Maremma from the top of the homonym hill
Once upon a time a town of the Etruscan, Greek and Roman civilizations, the town was populated until Middle Age
Since that time Rusellae has remained as it is now seen:
a wilderness of rocks and thickets — the haunt of the fox and wild boar, of the serpent and lizard — visited by none but the herdsman or shepherd,
who lies the live-long day stretched in vacancy on the sward, or turning a wondering gaze on the stupendous ruins around him,
of whose origin and history he has not a conception (George Dennis)
