The Casale Malborghetto incorporates a four-sided arch of Roman origin located at the intersection of Via Flamina and a road linking the interior. The arch was built in 315 AD to commemorate the victory of Constantine over Maxentius in 312 AD, on the place where Constantine’s troops had been based the day before the battle, and where, according to sources, the emperor saw in the sky the Christ’ symbol that he then copied on his shields.
In the eleventh century the building was transformed into a church and, in the thirteenth century, surrounded by walls to make a fortified village. Destroyed in the fifteenth century and surrounded by the ruins of the village, it was renamed Malborghetto, and later transformed into a farmhouse. In the eighteenth century it was adapted as postal stage with tavern and today it houses an Antiquarium containing the remains found in the local area.
