Si Fumo fumat, tota campania tremat
A small village that still has direct ties to the Middle Ages. This characteristic and evocative town called Fumone dominates the Sacco valley. In the past the residents would send up smoke (fumo) signals as soon as enemies were sighted. Pope Celestine V died in the prisons of his castle, after being imprisoned by Pope Boniface VIII. The village has steep small lanes and is dominated by the castle, which is softened by the presence of a splendid hanging garden on the top of the castle. An intact fortress. A must-see.
