Mount Vairano, an important centre in Pentrian  Samnium, is situated at a crossroads formed by the natural routes that links it to the Adriatic coast and two drove-roads (Pescasseroli-Candela and Ponte Zittola-Mulino Grande).
The settlement developed in the 4th-3rd century B.C. and diminished in size in around the middle of the 1st century B.C. (little is known of the occupation of this area in the 6th-4th B.C.). Remains of fortified sites dating to the Republican period and small rural settlements have been found in the surrounding areas. In the early years of the 1st century A.D. the fortified settlements were abandoned and the others were reduced in size.
