Herman van den Dungen: PrimaLuna in Italian is "First Moon".
One probable interpretation of the name of the village comes from latin "Primum Lumen", which means "First Light" of Christianism, since the very first evidence of Christianism. "First Light" translates into "Prima Luce" in Italian and this seems very interesting to me: PrimaLuce (FirstLight) is the first light that we, hi-fi lovers with small budgets, can see in this world of darkness populated by way too expensive esoteric gears …
