The San Felice site was settled and developed into a flourishing villa during the Imperial Roman Period. The villa site is thought of have become the property of an emperor, who developed a village at Vagnari in the 1st century A.D. and focused on the production of grain and wine. This image of the Serra San Felice was made from the vantage point of Vagnari, across a steep ravine.
