  • If we were in Umbria or Tuscany would worldwide. Instead ... But the reality is that downtown San Marco dei Cavoti is incredibly fascinating with narrow stones uphill and downhill. Here time seems to have stopped. Church bells mark the passage of time along with the tranquility of the people who live there. If it is true that there are houses that were abandoned, on the other hand it must be said that the old town is preserved very well! I recommend everyone to visit the village: you'll be amazed.

  • From the heights of the rock, called Artemisium, the Romans controlled the roads, the Valley of Dropping and territories Dauno-Irpini and Basilicata. In the middle ages, the castle of Sant'Agata (due to its strategic location) has played the important role of military-administrative district, having the command of a district composed of several countries. In the Lombard period, was the outpost of the Duchy of Benevento In Norman times, was called Comestabulia. In the Swabian period was known as Castellania. Frederick II included it among the Castra Exempta, (castles of primary importance as strategic for military purposes and residential). Among other things, Frederick II in 1239 restoration financed the construction that in 1250, requiring repair, all countries of Castellania. Also in the Angevin period the castle had its strategic military importance. Under the Aragonese, was ruled by the Orsini family, who owned the high Lordship until, in 1576, sold to the Marquis Loffredo, (Marquis that lasted almost three centuries). In context, quote, two interesting episodes, in Norman: "Sancta Agatha Isti sunt milites Sanctae Aguinardi feudum Landulphus filius Petri tenet, tenentes Agathae sicut dixit, feudum II. militum. CMU et augmento obtulit milites IV. Gualeramus, sicut dixit, tenet feudum i. militis. CMU et augmento obtulit milites II. Riccardus filius Brini tenet feudum, sicut dixit, i. militis. CMU et augmento obtulit milites II "(page 582 of the Catalogus Baronum Neapolitan). Contribution of the feudal lords, Knights and Soldiers, which from Saint Agatha, left for the crusade III (1184-1192). (research-d. Donofrio Del Vecchio). The castle of Sant'Agata, was considered an impregnable shelter. "Abbalardo de hauteville, when his father died (1057) was entrusted to the guardianship of his uncle, Robert Guiscard, who stripped him of every possession. The Abbalardo, no never forgave the Guiscard his arrogance: took part, therefore, the great Apulian revolt against him (1064). " (n.b. the rebellions of Abbalardo, were repeatedly suppressed, by Guiscard, year 1075). "He retired then, always rebellious, Sant'Agata di Puglia (Foggia), where he held out until 1078, when, by the intervention of his mother, he obtained the forgiveness of his uncle". As can be seen from the quotation marks of the historic Luigina Fasoli, Robert Guiscard, Duke of Apulia, while keeping under siege the impregnable Castle of Sant'Agata, failed ever to defeat the resistance of his nephew Abbalardo, (Abelard) that was forgiven only through the intervention of his mother. In reference to the historical notes above, it is considered appropriate to describe some behavioral characteristics probably acquired over time from Leprino. Remember, (before use) the phenomenon of that childhood organized in military style. local bands, with wooden swords, old chamberpot used as helmets, bows and arrows made with tube of umbrella, stones and even kicks and punches, which wrapped clashed with other gangs, to defend their territory. Peripheral slopes (or ridges) below the Castle, the gangs of guys with their heads, they built small forts, with shelters called "Casoni", not to violate, (well described in the novel "war of the buttons" by Louis Pergaud of 1912). Other feature gained over time, is the ability, (from that altitude dominant at 800 meters), to be keen observers of meteorological phenomena: the view from above the clouds, and follow through with it, the direction of the winds, observe the movement of waves of rain, hail and snow-streaked, foreseeing the eventual arrival in country or changing direction, have a sense of direction : indicating directions of places, countries, cities, having the privilege to observe: endless, sunrises, sunsets, the sea on the horizon and yet feeling suspended in flight, on the white expanse of clouds (fog) formed down.! downstream.
