Commune in the province of Potenza

The origin of the name is probably ‘Gens Avilia’, people of Roman origin who used to live in the place where the village is now. It used to be under the influence of the Goths, the Greeks, the Longobards and the Byzantines, while in the XI and XII centuries, the Normans brought a time of relative well being and peace. After them there was the domination of the Angevins and of the Spaniards.

There are still many ancient traditions, such as artistic handcraft, and in particular the production of knives.

It is an interesting place to walk around, full of remarkable constructions. From Gianturco Square, heart of the village, you can enter the old centre, where you can see some mediaeval palaces and some wonderful stone portals. In the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine there is the statue of the ‘Madonna del Carmine’, bearing witness of an old tradition.

The Lagopesole Castle is some miles away from the village.
