Antisanti is a landlocked commune on the eastern side of Corsica overlooking the eastern plain of the island some 80 km south of Bastia and 12 km west by north-west of Aléria. It belonged to the ancient Pieve of Rogna and is now part of the Rogna in La micro-region located on the right bank of the Tavignano extending from Vivario to the plain. Access to the commune is by the minor road D43 from Aléria in the east passing through the heart of the commune and the village before continuing west to join the D143 south-east of Santo-Pietro-di-Venaco. There is also a connecting road to the D343 near Vezzani. National Highway N200 passes along the eastern and northern borders but there is no access to the commune.
The west of the commune is rugged and heavily forested while the eastern half is on the plain with mostly farmland although still having significant forested areas.
The northern and eastern borders of the commune are formed by the Tavignano river with a large tributary flowing west through the centre of the commune to join it on the eastern border.
In 1770 Antisanti was one of the least populated communes in the Piève of Rogna.

From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]
Antisanti markets 40% of the national production of Clementines from its vast orchards.

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
