The Norman Castle


With the arrival of the Normans and the construction of the castle tower, the remains of ancient buildings became the foundations of a new city, whose name clearly identified its origins in the ancient city of Volcei.

Indeed, as Bartolomeo Bardaro confirmed at the end of the 16th century, “some have called it Vocino, but if we are to believe what was written in ancient times, on ancient stones, and subsequently recounted by learned elders, its real name is Vulceiana Civitas”.
