Manufacturing the fish

There are various theories that explain the formation of the toponym of Vilapicina. One of them claims that it derives from pixines or pools, which were ovens where a resinous substance by the name of “pez” was produced and which came from the Latin picis. According to another theory, it is due to the discovery of the remains of a mosaic which belonged to a pool of an ancient Roman bathhouse.
