The Territory

The municipality consists of two boroughs, Tora, whose toponym probably comes from the Latin Torus (= rise of land) and Piccilli, probably a surname. A few kilometers from the Casilina stateroad and the ancient Via Latina, the municipality owes its importance to its geographical location, a strategic point of military sighting.
