The current settlement that puts the old center of a rocky outcrop, was built originally as a transit house then developed as a commercial village overlooking the castle of Paterno, near one of the few places to cross the Black River. Built as a trading village of Paterno Castle, in one of the few crossing points of the Nera. At this bridge, during the armed uprising of the castles of the Val di Narco against Spoleto, in 1523 the rebels, led by Petrone da Vallo, killed by the Spaniard Alfonso Cardona, governor of Spoleto, came unarmed to seek peace.
The village has developed and gained its own autonomy to the decline of the castle above Paterno after Spoleto had quelled the armed revolt.

Buona sera Silvio,
Great perspective with the giant pitchers on both sides of the stairs, and excellent view inside the hall and arches.
Light and shadows beautifully mingling within, result of a superb light management.
Of all this series, I see this one as one of the best.
Bravo e arrivederci,
