Today they area preserved at the Arcaheological museum in Bergamo.
According to some scholars, the place name derives from the Lombard word "rothar" (person with red hair), implying the presence here of people of Lomard race.
As for artistic works of art, there is the parish Church of San Siro, with a portico with central arch, the Church of San Gottardo and the Parish Church of Rota Dentro, with paintings by Francesco Trevisani (XVIII cent.) and a wooden sculpture by G.A. Sanz.
