The town is divided in Roscigno Nuova (New Roscigno, simply referred as Roscigno), the new settlement built after a landslide at the old settlement; now named Roscigno Vecchia (Old Roscigno), distant 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) from the "new town".
Roscigno Vecchia (Old Roscigno, also named Roscigno Vecchio) is an example of a 19th-century rural town developed around a central square and a church unmodified by modern architectural or infrastructural changes.
It has been completely abandoned since the early 20th century, when the population moved to Roscigno Nuovo due to a landslide. Now open for tourism, the ghost town was declared an eco museum  in the early 21st century. Nearby, and also in the province of Salerno, there is another example of ghost town: the old village of Romagnano al Monte.
