Taken from the Album " Narni and the Tales of Narnia"


The first historical references to the town of Narni, which at that time was called “Nequinum”, go back to the year 600 A.C., but the zone had already been inhabited from Neolithic times. In 299 B.C. Narni became a Roman colony named Narnia, and in 233 B.C. it became an important fort for the construction of the “Flaminia Road”.

The Chronicle of Narnia

Narni in the last years has acquired major fame thanks to the fantasy best-seller “The Chronicle of Narnia”. The author C.S. Lewis gave probably this title to his work finding inspiration from his knowledge of Latin literature. But the writer stayed in the Italian town and his biographers report that in author’s atlas the name Narni is underlined. In addition, in his writings can be found elements connected to some symbols of the town such as the griffin, the stone lion and the ancient sacrificial stone. Perhaps the Kingdom of Narnia is here…
