ARPINO AND CIOCIARIA
Arpino, of Saturnian origins, was a very important fortified city of the Volsci, the Samnites and the Romans. This is testified by the imposing cyclopean walls from which opens a door to sixth acute, unique in Europe. In 188 a.C. it obtained the full Roman citizenship; the city enlarged the territory, with Caio Mario the ager Arpinas was enriched with possessions in Gaul. For centuries, since the high Middle Ages, it has been dominion of numerous lords before making part definitively, after long disputes with the papacy, of the Reign of Naples. Until the unification of Italy it was flourishing for the wool industry. Among the churches we remember that one of San Michele Arcangelo (sec. X), which conserves works of the Cavalier d'Arpino, of the School of the Caravaggio. In the church of Saint Maria of Civita (sec. Xl) it is guarded the wooden statue of the Assunta (sec. X-XI), particularly
venerated by the people of Arpino. The Monastery of S. Andrea Apostolo, one of the most ancient Benedictine cloistered monasteries in the area, preserves an ancient oil crucifix, under which a medieval example of a painted cross depicting Christ triumphant over death was found.
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 drive takes you to the enchanting beaches south of Rome. Alternatively, drive east, and the mountains of the Abruzzo National Park await you with horseback treks through magnificent beech forests, and sparkling mountain lakes and rivers where you can bathe in the heat of summer. And at the other end of the temperature spectrum, although Arpino itself is temperate, less than an hour's drive will get you to the winter ski slopes.
Ciociaria remains largely an unspoiled gem with beautiful landscapes and medieval hilltop villages. A home or second home in Ciociaria, in the hilltop towns of Arpino, Veroli, Alatri or the rolling countryside surrounding them, will offer you an environment where over two thousand years of history combine with an idyllic rural Italian lifestyle, where you can still discover the "real" Italy and take time off from the crowded crowds of the big tourist cities, while being less than ninety minutes drive from downtown Rome or either of Rome's two airports.
