That Segni was one of the attractions of the Lepini Mountains and the Valle dei Latini area we had always known. The unique Porta Saracena with the Cyclopean walls is one of the main tourist attractions of the area and there is no tourist who is not amazed by the grandeur of these structures.

Porta Saracena has everything: the charm of art, of mystery, of history and the beauty of the places when you climb up from the door following the walls.

From today, however, Segni now has another jewel: a Roman nymphaeum (fountain) dating back to the 2nd century BC, which also bears the signature of its architect Quintus Mutius.

During the period of the Roman Republic, cities like Segni played an important political role in the growth of Rome and allied with rome competing in beauty.

This nymphaeum is a testimony. Beautiful architectural work created by Michelangelo Bedini that protects it, enhances it and gives it great scale.

From today an important phase ends and an even more challenging one begins: letting the world know the beauty of Segni and getting tourists to this part of Lazio.

The groups of young people are there who can breathe new life into the city (we have met more than a few) and we are in Segni too. The next step is to study how to excite visitors, to plan events to make the works and the city alive and above all to communicate, communicate and communicate. In Italian and in English because Segni deserves to be known everywhere.
