HISTORICAL NOTES

Historical notes

The village of Torrioni grew up around a huge tower built by Lombard Duchies (Duchy of Benevento). The Lombard Tower was used to control a strategic route through the Sabato valley.

The Lombard Tower named "Turris Aionis" is first mentioned in a document dated 888.

In 1138 the fief passed to Raone de Farneto, noble of Norman origin who kept it until 1139, year in which it passed to Sarolo del Tufo.

In the following centuries various noble families (among them Caracciolo, Piatti and Capobianco) were invested with the fief.

The Lombard Tower doesn't exist any more. Ruins of an other defensive Tower are visible only a few metres away from Torrioni.
