Anciently known as Rosito or Rosetum already in Roman age, within the Daunian mountains there is a small village which, beyond appearances, contains an important history and nowadays is a destination renowned above all for its natural landscapes and finest food, such as honey and truffles: we are in Roseto Valfortore!
