Historical and artistic guide to the city and surroundings
The old center is characterized by a fabric of high architectural quality, made up of narrow streets often with steps, small squares, urban gates and underpasses, monumental fountains, closely packed houses, elegant buildings in carved stone with a rich production of artistic portals which embellish it and testify to the economic well-being determined by a particularly flourishing armentice industry up to the last century which gave impetus to thriving businesses (wool and dairy products) and to prestigious handicraft productions, in particular the art of bobbin lace and goldsmithing.
