Valcaldara - Norcia (PG)
The toponym Valcaldara could refer to the small valley to the south-east of the town, between the Church of San Pietro and the Church of San Giovanni, where tradition has it that the first nucleus of the town developed, which was later abandoned; the etymology could have a relationship both with a favorable climatic condition of the area ("warm valley", to be contrasted with "freddara", area west of Norcia) and with the shape of the valley itself (convex like the bottom of a cauldron, " callara "). Cited for the first time in the 11th century, as belonging to the Lombard steward of Ponte, Valcaldara was part of a system of “pagi” developed in the Capo del Campo area in Roman times.
