Una opinione su "p"

  1. The origins of Camagna Monferrato go back as far as the 5th to the 7th century, even though Roman settlements have also been documented. The road connecting Occimiano and Fubine, which goes through Conzano, Camagna and Cuccaro, is of Roman origin. The town’s name may have Roman origins, CA (home) – MANIA (after Roman Manius), or could be early medieval, CA ‘MAGNA (big house). At the time of the barbarian invasions, the Goths and Lombards merged with the local populations, and the subsequent centuries saw the establishment of many of our medieval villages, including Camagna. Starting probably with Charlemagne and through subsequent land donations, the territories of present-day Camagna belonged from the twelfth century to the Aleramici, who in tiurn transmitted them to the Paleologi and to the Gonzaga families. The latter particularly appreciated the wines produced in Camagna, often ordering Barbera and Grignolino for the cellar of their castle in Casale Monferrato.

    Camagna spreads over a hill, situated between the rivers Rotaldo and Grana, and reaches 261 meters above sea level, offering wonderful views: the towns of Conzano, Lu, Cuccaro and Vignale from the south, and Olivola, Frassinello, Rosignano, Cellamonte and Terruggia on the opposite side, all against the backdrop of the Alps and the Ligurian mountains, enclosing the look in an ideal frame. Around the church and a medieval castle that no longer exists, the village of Camagna developed concentrically, with narrow streets that reach the top of the hill, overlooked by the houses of tuff stone and bricks, so typical of Monferrato. From a distance, in all its various directions, Camagna shows so prominently its main buildings: the town hall, the parish church and “the castle”, or the building that took the place of antique manor, which was destroyed with the extinction of the last feudal lords, the Marquis Grisella. A small barn, located in Via Rocca and perhaps dating from the XIV or XV century, is testimony to the past.

    This historic path, in a walk of about half an hour, takes you into the rich history of our town, which today is still the residence of some 540 people. As part of the Vineyard landscape of Piemonte: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, it was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014.
