The village

Village Homes Troiano was born in 1609 following the transfer of the family of Nicholas Troiano from Fermo (Papal State) to Spoltore (Kingdom of Naples and Sicily).
The family buys 14 acres from Avalos who were vassals of the kingdom of Naples and start the construction of the first group of houses that will give life to the village over the centuries to follow.
Over the years the family grows and increases the number of homes that, at the end of 800, will come to house 10 families with about 40 people but it is surprising that so much economic development in the village will host a mill for the production of olive, a mill for processing grain, eight ovens for bakery and two tanks for processing grapes into wine as well as the production of fruit (peaches, apples, pears, cherries, walnuts, almonds, figs), breeding of sheep, producing wool and cheese, is transformed into pigs and cattle meat and meat products as a form of driving farm vehicles such as plows, harrows, carts, planters.
During the renovation of a house in the village were found marriage contracts and coins of the Bourbon kingdom on display at the museum housed in the cellars.
The visit, by appointment of the small Museum of Arts and peasant farming tools is free but you can stay in the house-museum of the village for a period of at least three days.
