Antisanti (in Corsican Antisanti, pronounced [ɑ̃ŋ.ti.ˈzɑ̃ːŋ.ti]) is a French commune in the Haute-Corse (Upper Corsica) department of France on the island of Corsica.
The inhabitants of the commune are known as Antisantais or Antisantaises
Antisanti is a landlocked commune on the eastern side of Corsica overlooking the eastern plain of the island some 80 km south of Bastia and 12 km west by north-west of Aléria. It belonged to the ancient Pieve of Rogna and is now part of the Rogna in La micro-region located on the right bank of the Tavignano extending from Vivario to the plain. Access to the commune is by the minor road D43 from Aléria in the east passing through the heart of the commune and the village before continuing west to join the D143 south-east of Santo-Pietro-di-Venaco. There is also a connecting road to the D343 near Vezzani. National Highway N200 passes along the eastern and northern borders but there is no access to the commune.
The west of the commune is rugged and heavily forested while the eastern half is on the plain with mostly farmland although still having significant forested areas.
The northern and eastern borders of the commune are formed by the Tavignano river with a large tributary flowing west through the centre of the commune to join it on the eastern border.
In 1770 Antisanti was one of the least populated communes in the Piève of Rogna.
With the French Revolution of 1789 the Pieve of Sorba became the Canton of Vezzani in the district of Bastia.
Since 1954 Antisanti has been part of the Canton of Vezzani along with the communes of Aghione, Casevecchie, Noceta, Pietroso, Rospigliani, and Vezzani.
