Commune in the province of Potenza

This village was subject to several dominations. First the Arabian one, then the Swabian and the Longobard. Later it became a fief of several feudal families.

On the central vault in the Main Church (XV century) there are some frescos. In the Church there are also a wooden statue of the 'Madonna delle Grazie' (XV century), a canvas representing the 'Madonna col Bambino' by Pietrafesa and a silver Cross for processions (XV century).

Near the village there is the Sanctuary of Monteforte and in its Church some frescos of the XII, XIII and XVI centuries are kept.

A few miles distant from the village, there is the 'Piana del Lago', a very good ski slope. Between Maruggio Mountain and Arioso Mountain there is the 'Rifugio della Maddalena', surrounded by an evocative wood in which, according to an old legend, the martyrdom of San Gianuario, Bishop of Carthage, took place.
