ARPINO – a unique place filled with art, culture, food and friendly people!
Named by many “ancient Rome”, Arpino has ancient origins and offers breathtaking sceneries as well as an abundance of history, art and culture. Arpino is also known for being the birthplace of people, such as the famous orator Cicero, Caio Mario, Marco Vipsanio Agrippa (in Roman times), San Francesco Saverio Maria Bianchi (“the apostle of Naples”) and the famous painter Giuseppe Cesari (also called the “Cavalier d’Arpino”). In 188 A.C. Arpino obtained Roman protectin thanks to the contribution in terms of men that the city of Arpino gave to Rome in the war against Hannibal.
The symbol of Arpino is the Eagle, with the wings spread on the two heights: Civita Falconara, in which it is located the “Castle of Ladislao” king of Naples, (1263) and the Acropolis of Civitavecchia, the oldest part of the city, surrounded by the imposing “Cyclopean walls” for the size of the boulders from which they are made, in which the ancient door to “Arco a sesto acuto” opens (unique in the world) and in which you can admire beauties like the “Torre di Cicerone” and breathtaking views.
Traces of medieval character can still be found today, as well as in the remains of the fortifications also by the intertwining of alleys and alleys, arches and stairways that climb towards the fortresses. The center of social, cultural and religious life in the city is “Piazza Municipio” which stands on the site of the ancient Roman Forum and in which we find the remains of the Via Latina.
The current structure of the country is affected by the eighteenth-century changes, when Arpino knew its greatest flowering in the economy, in the letters and the arts, testimony are the noble palaces of the aristocratic city families (some of which today host the wool museum, of violinmaking and typographic arts) and places of worship (52 churches) once used by the rich bourgeoisie. Still today appreciated as a city of art and culture, Arpino hosts every year, in May, the Certamen Ciceronianum Arpinas, a competition for the translation and commentary of a piece by the most illustrious son of this land (Cicero), who has now taken global importance.
There are many great restaurants in and around Arpino. There are several coffee shops and wine bars around the main piazza and you can find everything from tasty pizza to fine dining in this little town that features suprisingly many places to eat. There are also several agriturismos arount Arpino. Grocery shopping is a treat since fruit, vegetables and wine are all organically and locally produced.
