Acciano

2.2
Acciano is a comune in the Province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo region of Italy. The small, medieval village is in the Subequana valley and is a part of the Sirentina Mountain Community.This village is well known in Italy for its quality productions of Montepulciano red wines.HistoryMany monuments of great artistic significance are situated in the area including a recent discovery which found a square structure of an ancient Italic-Roman temple as well as numerous pottery fragments scattered around it. The structure is located between the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the cemetery in the S. Lorenzo. The test, run by the Archaeological Superintendence of Chieti, dated the relics to between the Republican and the first imperial age of the Roman Empire. Renowned Italian archaeologist Giuseppe Fiorelli discovered old burial tombs and fragments of bucchero vases around the Church of San Lorenzo. The discovery by Antonio De Nino in contrada Vicenna of shrouds and an elaborate system of underground tunnels with evident traces of a mosaic floor near the ancient cemetery is enough evidence to testify that there was an ancient town located at Acciano(for lack of funds now, these excavations have been covered by soil until they can be best appreciated).Various aristocratic families in Italy and Spain, such as the feuding Piccolomini and Scialenghi Strozzi families, rotated possession of the village. The presence of walls, towers (now destroyed) and doors bear witness to Acciano's strategic importance as the connection between the Adriatic and Rome, an importance it would bear for centuries.
