SANT’IPPOLITO

An ancient 14th century fortified town in which the skilled stonecutters worked the sandstone from the quarries, already known in Roman times, and produced objects of daily use and artistic and decorative works. Sant’Ippolito hosts the Museo del Territorio - Arte degli Scalpellini (the stonecutting museum): which illustrates this ancient art. In the whole territory around the town there is a distinct historical and artistic legacy of sandstone works dating back to the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. Two charming small towns from the late Middle Ages further enrich the territory: the castles of Sorbolongo and Reforzate. A special natural feature is the della Torre Romana wood: the relict of a hygrophilious wood providing evidence of ancient sheltering forests which once covered the river banks.
