Route of Via Cassia (in green).
was an important Via Cassia Roman road striking out of the near the Via Flaminia Milvian Bridge in the immediate vicinity of Rome and, passing not far from Veii traversed Etruria. The Via Cassia passed through Baccanae, Sutrium, Vulsinii, Clusium, Arretium, Florentia, Pistoria, and Luca, joining the at Via Aurelia Luna.
Via Amerina [ edit ]
was a road that broke off from the Via Cassia near Baccanae, and held north through Via Amerina Falerii, Tuder, and Perusia, rejoining the Via Cassia at Clusium. When the incursions of Faroald, the Lombard Duke of Spoleto, cut the Via Flaminia, the lifeline between Rome and Ravenna, the Via Amerina was improved and fortified at intervals, works that represented some of the last road-building carried out in Italy in Late Antiquity. As the new military and strategic route, the Via Amerina "became the communications core of Imperial Italy and the chief support to the claim that imperial Italy was still extant." [1 ]
Bridges [ edit ]
