Veduta di Canino

Veduta del Ponte e del Castello dell'Abbadia

PLACES AND THE ORIGINS.

The territory of Canino is one of the most beautiful landscapes of Tuscia area, bordering Tuscany and near to both Lazio and Tuscany Seas. The origin of the town is connected to the powerful “Gens Canina” family, coming from the town of Vulci and gradually subjected to Roman rule. Canino is famous for being the birthplace of Alessandro Farnese born in February 29th, 1468, who became Pope with the name of Pope Paolo Farnese III°, a proponent of the Second Vatican Council of Trento in 1545.

In 1800 the vast territory of Canino and its feud, became the habitual residence of Prince Luciano Bonaparte, brother of Napoleone I, who together with the Florentine archeologist Alessandro Francois, launched campaigns of excavation in the necropolis of Vulci. Moreover, Bonaparte wanted to reclaim the unhealthy and marshy land of Paglieto previously retrieved by the Papal State in the late eighteenth century thanks to Pope Pio VI, as our original topographic map confirms.

During that period, in the most suitable soils of “Parco Superiore” and “Le Due File”, began the intensive and specialized olive cultivation, a project completed in 1950 thanks to the Great Land Reform launched by Ente Maremma, which laid the foundations for the current production of over one hundred thousand quintals of olives, producing about 15.000 quintals of excellent Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) E.V.O.O..


If you are spending some days in Canino, you must visit the restored medieval village called “Le Buche”, the twelve-sided fountain of Vignola located in the village’s main square where has also been built the Collegiate Church of the Holy Apostles John and Andrew, dating back to the end of 1700 and containing the marble Bonaparte family’s Chapel designed by the sculptor Francesco Massimiliano Labourier. The Chapel also preserves the memorials dedicated to Luciano’s second wife Christine Boyer, to his father Charles and to his son Giuseppe Luciano, who died few months after his birth and whose work is attributed to Canova.

In the back of the Chapel is possible to see the grave of Luciano Bonaparte, a work of the sculptor Luigi Pampaloni performed on request of Alexandrine de Bleschamps, buried in this Chapel together with the Count Antonio Valentino, son of Vincenzo and Maria Bonaparte.

Luciano Bonaparte

I am emotionally attached to the family of Counts Valentini because I was born in 1944 in their home and the Count Antonio Valentini, great-grandson of Luciano Bonaparte, has been the godfather of my First Communion. I had tiny relationships with this family and every summer I was invited to spend some time in their Laviano County.

Is important to remember that the Count Vincenzo Valentini, husband of Maria Bonaparte, was the Minister of Finance during the First Roman Republic and one of his great-grandson Enzo Valentini at eighteen years aold, volunteered in the First World War in the front of Marmolada where he died in October 1915. To pay tribute to his memory was given to the family the purple heart.

Canino has other cultural attractions such as:
-the tower where Pope Paolo Farnese III° was born and the bronze monument citizens dedicated to him;
-Bonaparte Palace created by the architect Valadier;
-Palaces Miccinelli and Caraceni dating back to 1400;
-Palaces Valentini and Brenciaglia dating back to 1800.

“Porta di Vulci” Museum is located in the renovated convent of San Francesco, where is possible to admire some valuable archeological findings ranging from Etruscan and Roman periods up to the Middle Age. This Museum contains also the authentic reproduction of the famous Francois Grave with its frescoes (the originals are preserved in Rome at Villa Albani-Torlonia).

Near the village is possible to visit Castellardo and an important rocky church dating back to 1000 a.C. located under the volcanic outcrop of the town. Not far away are clearly visible the streets built by the Etruscans linking Tuscany with the city of Tuscania.

 

 

CANINO: A LAND TO DISCOVER

The town of Canino offers to tourists one of the most picturesque landscapes of Lazio’s Northern area characterized by its unspoilt countryside full of olive groves with a breathtaking view of the sea and Argentario to the west and Tolfa mountains to the east.

Tourists can visit the archeological site of the ancient town of Vulci, one of the largest city-state of Etruria.
The Castle and the Bridge, dating back to the Middle Age were built on the foundations of an ancient
Etruscan Roman bridge 28 meters high lying on Fiora River and offering a breathtaking view.

Inside the Castle of the Abbey was set up the National Museum of Vulci which displays precious Etruscan and Roman findings of Vulci’s surrounding areas discovered during the archeological excavations initiated by Prince Luciano Bonaparte in 1800 and continued by the Ministry of Culture.
The Museum is open daily from 8.30 am to 7.00 pm; ticket price E2.00, reduced E1.00.
Phone number (+39) 0761 437 787

By reservation only calling the above-written number, is possible to visit the surrounding necropolis of Ponte Rotto with the famous Francois Grave, the tomb of the powerful Etruscan family of Saties (the most important monument of Canino) which takes the name from the Florentine archeologist Alessandro
Francois who discovered it in 1857 during an excavations campaign on behalf of the Prince Torlonia, owner of that land, previously part of Musignano’s Farm. These lands were already owned by the Prince of Canino Luciano Bonaparte but in 1951 were confiscated by the State and then redistributed among citizens thanks to Maremma del Fucino National Land reform.

In addition to Francois Grave, is possible to visit Cuccumella build-up, considered the largest sepulchral structure in Europe, 75 meters large and 28 meters high. Do not forget the Graves of Iscrizioni, Rotonda, Tori and Due Ingressi.

Moreover, walking through the archeological park is possible to admire the “Oasis of Vulci”, one of the most beautiful natural reserves in Italy run by WWF.

The River Flora, on the border between Tuscany and Lazio, is the heart of the Natural Reserve Area, with a surface of 353 hectares including the territories of Canino and Montalto di Castro in the province of Viterbo and the area of  Manciano in the province of Grosseto. Visit also the picturesque waterfall of Flora River, in the southern part of Ponte dell’Abbadia, just before arriving in Vulci.

The park also has an olive grove composed by about 300 trees including different olives’ varieties cultivated in Italy: olive trees donated to the Oasis in 1992 by Arturo Archibusacci in confirmation of our love for nature.

The park is open every Sunday from April to August from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm; groups and school children can enter by reservation only, calling at (+39) 0761 897 015.

Only with a valid access permit issued by the owners of the archeological area, is possible to visit the Roman Apollinari Baths, located closely to the mountains of Canino. Nearby are also accessible the Thermal Baths built by the Prince  Luciano Bonaparte at the beginning of 1800, fallen into disuse over the time.
