About the village

Ausona traditions (in ancient Greek Auxòna Αυξώνα,), the ancient city of Italic people degli Osci Ausoni, is a city of difficult to locate. Was part of Pentapoli Aurunca; allied Capuani, it was destroyed by the Romans in314 BC and its inhabitants passed for weapons. The city does not was reborn after this massacre. Near the modern town were found Latin inscriptions of the imperial age concerning the divinity of Hercules. By some scholars, these entries are made in relation to the presence of an ancient via processional, which in part is still traceable path, dedicated to the worship of God and that led from Ausona to the Tyrrhenian coast at Minturno. In the 846, a Saracen fleet put under siege Gaeta; the besiegers settle in places with duos leones at the current Ausonia, taking control of the streets of communication toward the south.

The village of Fratte, from Latin voice "fracta" = things broken or ruins (note a), was nominated for the first time in the XI century in documents from the Abbey of Monte Cassino and the duchy of Gaeta. From the XV century to follow, fief before Caetani, then the column and Carafa.
