Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

Castel del Monte is a comune in the Province of L'Aquila in Abruzzo, Italy. Located in the heart of Italy's Gran Sasso, the medieval hill town is set into a steep hillside nestled beneath mountain peaks near the high plain of Campo Imperatore. The name Castel del Monte is from the Latin "Castellum de Montis" or fortress down from the mountains. The first evidence of human settlement are artifacts from the 11th century B.C.discovered in the valley beneath Castel del Monte and believed to be from an ancient necropolis. In the 4th century BC, Romans conquered the area and established Citt delle Tre Corone, the name meaning "fortified town behind three walls". This town was later abandoned because of the Goth Migrations or Barbarian Invasions and replaced by the fortified town of Ricetto in what is now the oldest part of Castel del Monte.


Porta San Rocco, the main gate to historic Castel del Monte, until the end of the 19th Century, the town's five gates were shut each night to keep out bandits. The first recorded mention of Castellum Del Monte came in 1223 in a papal bull by Pope Honorius III. In 1298, the Counts of Aquaviva took possession of the town. In 1474, it passed to Alessandro Sforza and a short time later to the Piccolominis. In 1501, forces loyal to Spain plundered Castel del Monte because of the town's allegiance to France.
