The Postignano Castle: Umbria’s Middle Ages get a second chance

Castello di Postignano, Sellano (Pg), Umbria

At one point in its millenary history, the Postignano Castle in Umbria was forgotten. In the 1950s and 1960s, all locals left in search of a better life in faraway large cities.

Thus, this wonderful medieval village in Valnerina – defined by American architect Norman Carver as the archetype of Italian hill towns and granted the status of “national interest site” by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities – went through a period of decline until 2007, when a thorough, philological project for renewal began.

The 9th-century village, located along the road to Spoleto, Foligno, Norcia, and Assisi, was re-inaugurated in 2011, welcoming the public once again.

However, Postignano is not just a beautiful monument to visit; it is, now more than ever, a fantastic place where you may decide to live.
