History

Although unproven by archaeological and historical sources, it is thought that before the Roman conquest the area of Rivoli was inhabited by the Taurini, a tribe of the Ligures, who, after the 4th century, were most likely joined by a Celt migration from southern France. The Romans conquered the area in 221 BC.

The first findings are from the 1st and 2nd century AD, belonging to Roman sepultures.
