The name "Altinia" comes from the town towards which it was turned,
namely "Altino", the Roman town devastated by Huns led by Attila (who pillaged the grounds near Padua, Vicenza and
Verona) from which the other names might come, that is "Altilia" and it is arrived at the name "Altinia" from
the combination of two names, similar in assonance.
Porta Altinia is the last gate belonging to the oldest
medieval walls, included in the sixteenth-century circle; this door was stiffened and it was raised, in its history,
by superstructures to adapt itself to different conditions to which the walls had to make up for.
