The medieval village of Vitorchiano
Vitorchiano, located in the province of Viterbo is a very picturesque village, perched, as usual in this area, above a tufaceous crop. It is surrounded by rolling green hills covered with hazelnut trees (the area produces some of the best Italian hazelnuts classified as DOP), vineyards, olive groves, woods of oak and chestnuts. Its origins seem to date back to Etruscan times, but the city was also inhabited in Roman times and has always been extremely devoted to Rome, to the point of putting on their heraldic logo the S.P.Q.R. letters, symbol of the acronym ‘The Senate and the People of Rome‘.
