Ariano Irpino

Ariano Irpino is a municipality in the province of Avellino, in the Campania region of Italy on the railway between Benevento and Foggia, about 40km east of the former.The most common surnames from Ariano Irpino are Cardinale, Grasso, Scarperrotta, Albanese, Riccio, Clericuzio, Melito, Guardabascio, Pratola and Iannarone.GeographyAt an elevation of 817m above sea level, Ariano Irpino is practically centred between the Adriatic Sea and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Formerly called just Ariano, it was built on three hills, and for that reason it is also known as Città del Tricolle (City of the Three Hills). From 1868 to 1930, when it became part of Campania, it was known as Ariano di Puglia. Irpinia is the name given to the area of the Apennine Mountains around Avellino. The name derives from the Oscan word hirpus, meaning wolf.Ariano lies in the centre of a fertile district, but has no buildings of importance, as it has often been devastated by earthquakes. A considerable part of the population still dwelled in caves until 1911. It has been supposed to occupy the site of Aequum Tuticum, an ancient Samnite town which became a post-station on the Via Traiana in Roman times; but this should probably be sought at S. Eleuterio, 51mi north. It was a military position of some importance in the Middle Ages. About 20km south-southeast is the Sorgente Mefita, identical with the pools of Ampsanctus.
