Tucked away in the woods covering the Artemisio mountain range, it owes its fame to the excellent quality dark flour bread and the well known Festival of Porcini Mushrooms.

The town of Lariano is located at about 6 km northeast of Velletri, at the foot of the Mount Maschio D’Ariano (which in ancient times was known as Monte Algidus). It is a relatively young comune (town) yet the history of its territory goes as far back as ancient times when during Roman Imperial Age a defensive outpost, and later a fortified castle, was situated here. Furthermore, according to Horace’s Carmen Seculare (Secular Hymn) a temple dedicated to the goddess Diana was situated on top of this mount.
