is the capital of the region of Molise. The town has more than fifty
thousand inhabitants but still maintains its original human dimension.
It is generally thought to be of Longobard origin, but the remains
of polygonal walls which have come to light on the flank of the
hillside seem to point to an older Samnite settlement. Castello
Monforte, on the top of the hill, evokes us feudal times, with particular
reference to Nicola Monforte, a supporter of John of Anjou in 1459
who was later forced to flee to France.
The town has two parts: the original medieval city and the more
modern developments in different directions. Worth visiting are
the Samnite Museum and the “Fair of the Mysteries”,
the latter being a collection of “living” pictures set
up on "machines" which represent the Christian mysteries,
built by Paolo Saverio Di Zinno in 1740.
