A very ancient city of mysterious origins, it owes its name to the God Saturn son of Uranus and lord of the Gods until one of his sons had displaced him. The wife of Saturn, Gaea, every year gave him a son that he himself, to be sure of annihilating him, killed him eating it alive. As long as that horrible banquet continued, it is not known, but one day Gea put Zeus into the world and hid him in a cave of Mount Ida in the Island of Crete: and so the prophecies were fulfilled, according to which Zeus became the new lord of the Olympus.
The legend wants that Saturnia, risen from the hands of God, was even the first Italic city; however, the first evidence of life currently found, date back to the second half of the eighth century BC as evidenced by the Etruscan burial grounds discovered in loc.
