History

In antiquity, Santa Marinella was the site of Aquae Caeretanae, a Roman bathing resort.[2]

Culture

Actress Ingrid Bergman and director Roberto Rossellini had a villa here. The gypsy punk band, Gogol Bordello also have a song titled "Santa Marinella" about Eugene Hutz's time in Santa Marinella as he tried to gain immigration to America.

Famous for its "Wheels of Immigration" - a pretzel-like snack consumed by Russian Jewish immigrants who temporarily settled there in the late 1980s on their way to United States or Israel.
