PETTORANO

Pettorano is one of the most beautiful medieval villages of Italy but the zone was inhabited since the times of the Romans as proved by the rests of funeral equipments and inscriptions found in the area and the Plinio's citation that remembers it with the name of Pagus Fabianis.
Grown around Castello Cantelmo, Pettorano was encircled of walls in the High Middle Ages and was considered a strategic center for the Empire by Federico II of Svevia.

In order to visit Pettorano you can enter through one of the six doors of the town-walls and, walking upstream, stop admiring its palaces: Palazzo Ducale with a beautiful Fontana in the center of Piazza Zannelli; Palazzo Barocco or Castaldina and Palazzo Croce.
But the true goal in Pettorano sul Gizio is Castello Cantelmo. Originally was composed only from the central sighting tower with pentagonal plant but later was encircled of walls and increased in size. The castle was protagonist of the Italian historical vicissitudes passing under the infuence of the Duca di Spoleto, of Pope Gregorio IX in 1229, then to the Svevi, to the Angioini, and finally in the hands of the Cantelmo, come in Italy from the Scozia to the continuation of Carl of Angiò, than they held it for longest time until 1750.
