Hi Sergio, I found this interesting article when I looked up the location Altilia:

Here, at Altilia in Sepino, where long sections of the ancient "tratturi" (sheep tracks) have survived as traces in the land, the spontaneous peasant architecture has, without intellectualism, given life to a miracle of "confusion" between the distant and recent past, and has unravelled the life of many centuries with no visible traumas. Here, the Matese re-establish a real sense of stratified collective memory to whoever sits down for a rest on the grass under the columns of the Roman basilica or on the stone kerb which marks the forum boundary. And still from this hollow which outlines and defines the western part of Molise, going further back in time, we discover traces of that ancient people, the Samnites, much loved by the people of Molise in the past and still today. etc.etc..
