🌍 Scanno - Italy
Scanno is a wonderful hamlet situated in the region of Abruzzo.
It is named after the place on which it stands. In fact, the Romans called scamnum (“scanno” in Italian, i.e. stool), the rocky spurs of the mountains of the upper Sagittarius Valley that surround the Borgo.
Mentioned for the first time in 1067 in a donation act of the Monastery of S.Pietro in Lago, in Montecassino, Scanno demostrates a more ancient origins through the finding in the territory of ROman rests and others dating back to the bronze age.
Scanno offers a unique and characteristic atmosphere with its secular architecture immortalized by distinguished photographers, such as Cartier-Bresson, Giacomelli and Scianna.
