Canterano is in Lazio. This is a picturesque city right in the heart of Italy on the Appennines. What most characterizes this place is its unspoiled nature and traditions which are visible still today. Its history is characterized by a mixture of legends and actual facts. That is why it is not surprising that its coat of arms is represented by a small boat, even though the seaside is at least 80 kms away.
