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

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.
