History and traditions. From the Middle ages to the present
AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The heritage of local traditions is like a treasure chest opening up to let the visitors know the real nature of people who inhabit it.

The events that concerned Grumento Nova’s area in the Middle and Modern ages are both written on history books and reported by buildings and places within the landscape, and they tell about men, traditions, felt and lived religion.

So why not have a walk in the village to discover churches and palaces, or in the countryside, to check how the time has modified man’s works, and how man, through the memory, tries to defend his works from the effects of time.
