Esperia

4.6
Esperia is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Frosinone in the Italian region Lazio, located about 110km southeast of Rome and about 40km southeast of Frosinone. It is located within the Monti Aurunci Natural Park.HistoryAccording to some theories, the foundation of the town would be linked to the destruction of the Roman colony of Interamna Lirenas, although the first historically documented human presence dates to the foundation of several monasteries, with the annexed boroughs, by the Abbey of Montecassino (10th century).The name "Esperia" was chosen in 1867 when the current frazioni of Roccaguglielma and San Pietro merged into a single municipality, with the former as the municipal seat.During World War II Esperia was one of the towns suffering heavily from "Marocchinate" - the mass rape committed after the Battle of Monte Cassino by Goumiers, Moroccan colonial troops of the French Expeditionary Corps. Esperia's mayor at the time reported that in his town, 700 women out of 2,500 inhabitants were raped and that some had died as a result.Main sightsThe church of Santa Maria Maggiore houses a painting by Taddeo Zuccari and a 1521 bas-relief. The Baroque church of the Madonna di Loreto has a 16th-century wooden Madonna and several paintings by Luca Giordano.
