This country road in the Castel di Leva area has a very unusual name. The « fresh », in fact, in the Lazio dialect is a vulgar way to call the female reproductive organ. And Santa Fresca is a saint of which there is no witness. According to the scholars, it could be a corruption of « Saint Frances », or simply a name used by the peasants of the area to call the « marrana » -Roman way to define a stream- which passed around here.
