ISOLA DEL PIANO

The town nestles at the foot of Monti delle Cesane, up on a hill at 210 metres above sea level. The landscape is typically hilly and characterised by soft peaks, fields of wheat, vineyards,  uncultivated plots of land, seed and fodder plants still enclosed by hedges, plants and centennial oaks. The former Monastero di Montebello (monastery of Montebello), houses the Museo “Sulle tracce dei nostri padri” (“in the footsteps of our fathers”) set up by the founders of the co-operative Alce Nero (one of the first organic experiences in Italy). In Montebello there is a protected flora area with a high degree of natualness and which gives the area an important natual aspect. The former rectory of the medieval village Castelgagliardo, an ancient Maletastiano castle, houses the Museo Trecce e Intrecci (museum of weaving, which honours local tradtitions connected to artisan and artistic aspects of weaving.
