ANVERSA

Flaturno was the name of this locality before the advent of Normanni, that gave it the Aversa name at the beginnig of the II millenium. Other etymo of its name could be due to its geographic position: ad versus (in the vicinity of), with reference to the waters of Sagittario valley.
Surely since the 1150 Anversa degli Abruzzi was already an important center that belonged to count Simone di Sangro, representative of a family that managed the power until 1431. This family wanted the construction of the Norman castle (sec. XII) unfortunately ruined from the earthquake of 1706 must.

The village hits for the typical atmosphere made of tight alleys and unexpected passages under arches.
We remember the Church of S. Maria delle Grazie (sec. XVI) with the beautiful Renaissance portal (1540) and magnificent rosone (1585) and Romanesque Church of S. Marcello (XI sec.) with an elegant late gothic portal.
It is worth the effort of reach the panoramic viewpoint on the Sagittario valleys and go downhill then to visit the rests of the church of S. Maria ad Nives and the adjacent monastery (IX sec.).
In Anversa the poet Gabriel Dannunzio setted "the best one of my tragedies”: Fiaccole sotto il moggio.
