The Roman Villa is of a great archacological interest: it is the only evidence of this type on the Coast. lt permits historians to verify their theorics about the importance of the Villa (and in particular of Minori) during Roman dominion. On the other hand, even its toponym, that is its country name, is of Latin origin, like that of the near Maiori. Besides, perhaps it will be necessary to explain that the augmentative (maior that is bigger) and the diminutive (minor, that is smaller) do not refer to the importance or size of the respective towns, but to the torrents' flow crossing their centres and having the same name, Reginna Maior the former and Reginna Minor the latter. These torrents are both terrible when they fall headlong into the sca during the winter. As a matter of fact both towns have often been devastated by terrible floods. Fortunately, today, this danger is only a memory of the past thanks to the progress of civil engincering.
