Benevento: An Italian gem of culture and sorcery
Very few people outside of Italy are familiar with this ancient little city that lies about 50km northeast of the dazzling Naples. Resting on a hillside in the scenic region of Campania, Benevento is a fascinating blend of diverse cultures, heritages, and mythologies. Once a fortressed Samnite town, it flourished as a powerful colony under the Romans in the 3rd century B.C. In the mid-6th century, the Lombards held extensive power in Italy, and Benevento crept into the spotlight again as the seat of a powerful Lombard Duchy. The Duchy of Benevento conquered a number of important territories from the Byzantine Empire, expanding rapidly and encompassing most of the country. After a civil war that split the Duchy in half, in the 12th century Benevento became a province of the Papal States.Lucia Yuki
