Visit the ancient village Palazzo Zampaglione, Calitri, region of Campania, Italy
Located in the medieval part of the village of Calitri. It is a three-story building of historical importance. The ground floor of the palazzo dates back as far as the end of the 15th century and is characterized by vaulted-ceiling cellars. Many internal sections of the palazzo are strengthened in wood, on which carved and painted heraldic decorations can be seen on display. To see images visit: http://www.italydreamvacation The palazzo has been completely restructured with a view to maintaining all the characteristics and flavors of its history.
The Zampaglione family, a social pillar of Calitri for centuries, originally moved to the area from its birthplace, France. The family is first mentioned in the social chronicles of the area in 1336, when Captain Zampaglione de’ Tornaquinci is referred to as being in charge of the city of Massa.
Towards the end of the 16th century, Giovanni Francesco Zampaglione was well known in the region as an important jurist. The Zampiglione family is recognized by the Royal Commission of Aristocratic Titles of the Reign of the Two Sicilies and has contributed numerous men of academia, leadership and valor to the region in the course of the centuries, including Salvatore Zampaglione, who organized the evacuation of the local population in 1843 when the Mount Etna volcano erupted and received the “De rege Optimo Merito” medal from King Ferdinand I. Another Zampaglione, Michele, prosecutor and council of the Borbonic Supreme Court of Justice, declared the end of the Reign of the Two Sicilies and the annexation of the territories to the nascent Italy. Other members of the Zampaglione family have held prestigious posts and played important roles in local society, and many have been bestowed decorations and awards.
