ARPINO AND CIOCIARIA
Arpino, of Saturnie origin, was a very important fortified city of the Volsci, The Sannites and the Romans. This is evidenced by the imposing cyclo-pecological walls from which opens a door to acute sixth, unique in Europe.
In 188 BC he obtained full Roman citizenship; the city expanded the territory, with Caio Mario the Arpinas ager enriched himself with possessions in Gaul. For centuries, since the early Middle Ages, it was the domain of numerous lords before being permanently part, after long disputes with the papacy, of the Kingdom of Naples.
Until the unity of Italy has been thriving for the wool industry. Among the churches are that of St. Michael Archangel (sec. X), which preserves works by the Cavalier d'Arpino, of the Caravaggio School. In the church of St. Mary of Civita (sec. Xl) is guarded the wooden statue of the Assumption (sec. X-XI), particularly
revered by the arpinates. The Monastery of St. Andrew the Apostle, one of the oldest Benedictine cloistered monasteries in the area, houses an ancient oil crucifix, under which a medieval specimen of a painted cross depicting the triumphant Christ on death has been found.
The Ciociaria is easily accessible from both Rome and Naples and their respective airports. A day of shopping in Rome is a common pastime, while an even shorter commute takes you to the enchanting beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of Abruzzo National Park await you with horseback trekking in the magnificent beeps, and sparkling lakes and mountain rivers where you can bathe in the heat of summer. And at the other end of the temperature, even if Arpino himself is temperate, less than an hour's drive will get to the winter ski slopes.
Ciociaria remains largely a pristine gem with beautiful landscapes and medieval villages atop the hills. A house or second home in Ciociaria, in the hilly towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or in the gentle countryside that surrounds them, will offer you an environment where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic Italian rural lifestyle, where you can still discover the "real" Italy and take time off from the crowded crowds of big tourist cities, despite being less than ninety minutes' drive from the center of Rome or from one of the two airports.
