A BIT OF HISTORY
The Etruscans already sensed the beneficial and curative properties of Terme dei Vulci. Later, the Romans took advantage of the water by creating thermal baths, the so-called Vasche delle Cento Camere, a number of pools including a Calidarium, a Tiepidarium and a Frigidarium. In the middle of the pools there was a natium in a figure of eight. Some archeological finds show that there were many thermal baths even inside private rooms.
There was a particular interest in the following period: Luciano Bonaparte (brother of Napoleon) had a thermal center built, Casale del Bagno, a rectangular pond supplied by a natural source.
