Photographer's Note

Cerreto di Spoleto - (PG)
Castle of medieval origin built on a pre-existing settlement on the San Sebastiano hill, it is located in a panoramic position, on the ridge of a high hill dominating the confluence of the narrow valleys of Vigi and Nera, which surround it on both sides. The advantageous natural position favored, during the Middle Ages, its strategic value for the defense of the underlying valley of the Nera and Vigi and made it territory of conquest by the communities of Norcia and Spoleto, always wishing to extend their territorial domains. 'one to the disadvantage of the other.
Its name derives from the widespread presence of oaks and, among other things, until the last century a hundred-year-old oak could be admired in the main square of the village. The oak is also present in the municipal coat of arms.
