Reperti di fondamenta del III secolo a.C. presso la chiesetta di S.Sisto

 
 
In the Roman age, the territory of Villorba was subject to the territorial arrangement noted by the name of centuriation. The field of reference was the area of Tarvisino. Other important signs of Roman viability were constituted by the axis roads of via Postumia (148 B.C.) and of via Claudia Augusta Altinate (45 A.C.). Related to the existence of a human community in the compact road scheme constituted by the two abovementioned axis roads and by the centuriation lines, are some findings of clay material, coin (one of which is contemporary to the construction of Claudia Augusta Altinate), and the remains of building materials used in the Catena and Lancenigo locality. The site on which ancient little church of Saint Sisto now stands is of absolute interest. The actual building dates back to the XV century however, part of the walls and foundations can be dated to at least the VII century A.C. Recent restoration works have brought to light the remains of a building, probably intended for the pagan cult: it has a semicircular foundation decorated with fresco plaster painting and representations of palms, in the interior there were overturned titles, crockery and various types of clay material. Such material could be traced back to the Roman presence in the territory whilst previously (III century B.C.) would be the materials discovered under the layer of rubble: human bones, burial remains, precious objects and other handiworks.
