  • Already in the 6th century BC there is news of a settlement sabino at the foot of monti homonyms, called Cures (which in native language meant "spear"). The town is mentioned by numerous ancient historians such as Livy, Strabo, Plutarch. After the Roman conquest Cures became an important economic center on the via Salaria, but in later centuries fell increasingly ending up in the orbit of nearby towns. In the 7th century AD, when the Lombards founded nearby the first nucleus of the current Fara in Sabina, the ancient Cures was now reduced to a heap of ruins. The town's name comes from all over Italy, Fara, Germanic "fahren" (journey) and indicated an armed family clan looking for a territory where settle. In the area had already been founded in the sixth century a.d. the great Benedictine Abbey of Farfa: one of the most important monastic communities of the time, able to control hundreds of villages, castles and convents throughout Central Italy, smaller. According to some chroniclers of the time at the time of Charlemagne, when Farfa reached its peak of power, spiritual and material power of its abbot was second only to that of the Pope. During the middle ages Will became a fief of the Orsini, who in the following centuries were replaced by other noble families, including the Barberini of Florence. Today the municipality of Fara Sabina, in the province of Rieti, has about 14,000 inhabitants; the town is most famous for the production of olive oil. The Cathedral of this town was built in 1500, on an older church is smaller. At Renaissance lines of the façade has been a sober Bell Tower with mullioned Windows and without a Spire. Inside it houses a beautiful Tabernacle of Alabaster (of uncertain attribution) and a crucifix that a tradition rather macabre wants covered with human skin. A short distance from the cathedral stands the Palazzo Orsini, whose massive appearance makes it look like a fortress: indeed, in the middle ages, as well as residential, he also had a defensive function. Over the centuries the building was destroyed twice: from Saracen pirates and by the troops of the Emperor Lothair II. After various vicissitudes, in 1600, Pope Urban VIII gave it to the Poor Clares of eremitical rule who transformed in the monastery of Saint Mary of Providence: a haven of peace, meditation and prayer. A salon of the convent, the so-called Museum of silence, is now open to visitors who can live at least part of the mystical atmosphere of the ancient monastic life. Palazzo Brancaleoni, an elegant building of 1500, houses the Museo Civico Archeologico di Fara in Sabina. Here is a collection of finds from excavations of Cures, including a block of stone dating from 500 BC on which is engraved a rare inclusion in sabini characters. The ancient Greek alphabet shows affinity with sabino. Worthy of note also a number of golden objects found in a tomb of ancient Eretum (near the present day Oslo). Another section of the Museum, housed in the Abbey of Farfa, medieval houses exhibits from the surrounding area. Connected to the town by a fairly smooth trail, on the Summit of Mount Acuziano at 500 mt. high, are the remains of the Abbey of San Martino, built around the year 1000 over an earlier pagan temple. It seems that on this site, better defend from marauding raids, should have a time moving to the nearby Abbey of Farfa, but for some unknown reason the project was not followed. From Mount Acuziano offers a beautiful view of both Fara Sabina, both of the Tiber Valley in General. For those coming from Rome Fara in Sabina is easily accessible from the A1 Roma – Firenze, onto the SS4 Salaria Branch towards Passo Corese. Here we take the joints Via Farense-SP 41 which will take you to your destination.

  • The Museum is an essential stop for anyone who wants to understand the history and evolution of the territory of Sabina del Tevere from prehistory through the archaic period until the coming of Rome. Has two basic sections, Cures and Eretum. interesting Scripture Hall where the "cippo di Cures", the only known example of writing the Sabines showing contacts with the Adriatic area of picenum, all well described in displays. The town of Eretum are preserved remains of considerable archaeological value and astonishing beauty, all coming from the excavation of the necropolis, which have lasted for about thirty years since 1974. They show the least known face of civilization, namely that of a proud people, dedicated to the community but also the war in defense of their territory, attracted by the beauty and Oriental fashion of the time, as evidenced by the jewelry of refined workmanship and the presence of certain objects from the Near East. Must see, it only cost € 2.50 and with additional 4.00 you can have a guided tour. The Museum organizes monthly workshops for children and guided tours for parents, information at the bookshop or the Museum's facebook page.
