What does “Hic manebimus optime” mean ?

Titus Livius reports about it.

Titus Livius was a Roman historian who wrote a monumental history of Rome (“Ab Urbe Condita”) about the origin of Rome (traditionally dated to 753 BC) through the reign of Augustus (the age when Jesus Christ was born).

Titus Livius wrote that the sentence “Hic manebimus optime” was pronounced by a soldier during the civil war between “plebei” (poors)  and “patrizi” (aristocrats). Plebei were against Patrizi because their poor condition of life: plebei were not slaves but “working poors” under the orders of Patrizi families.

At that time, Marcus Furius Camillus, a very important senator, addressed to the plebei who intended to abandon the city and commute to Velio, an old city that was gained by Rome in nearby.

Marcus Furius Camillus didn’t success to convince the plebei to remain at Rome, and they were on the point to leave Rome when a “centuriore” (a Roman soldier), that was coming back from the battle against Velio, stopped in the area and said:  “Hic manebimus optime”, i.e. “Here we’ll stay very well”. The plebei understood that Rome was a good place to live, and they changed theur minds. The Rome history went on thanks the “Hic manebimus optime” sentence.

What about Palazzo Ferretti ? Why we like this sentence ?

We want to use this motto because we think that Pietrasanta is a nice place to enjoy, to have holidays, to relax, to study art and history, to carve marble, to have beach holidays and so on.
