Storia di Tordandrea di Assisi
Marchesato dei Baglioni
“Knowing one’s origins, one’s roots has always been the desire of every man,
in every age; for this reason, the study of history keeps its charm intact over time.
This also applies to those who live in a town like Tordandrea, who, at a certain moment, have heard the
need to get to know each other better, recovering all its historical heritage that lay in the darkness of the archives.
The “Pro-Loco” thus entrusted prof. Santucci the task of investigating the origins and events of this town from the name
important, but from the present anonymous; a rich and fascinating history has emerged,
more than one could have imagined: a past worthy of attention and, in certain respects and at certain times,
truly glorious. Tordandrea will appear truly new to those who read this book,
a center full of ferments, the scene of important events, inhabited by an active, industrious and combative population,
strongly united around its castle. The hope is that, after reading this book,
every Torreggiano feels even more proud of belonging to this land and more stimulated
to conserve its artistic and cultural heritage to deliver it as intact as possible to future generations.”
