The historical area known as The Ciociaria (pronounced: cho-cha-ree-a) is a geographic bridge between Rome and Naples. Its name originates from the word “ciocie”, ancient and typical footwear once worn by local shepherds. The history and spirit of The Ciociaria have been forged through its intimate connection with the landscape, from the pre-Roman era with its ancient acropolises surrounded by megalithic walls, to the era of Imperial Rome and the emergence of many prosperous towns along the Via Latina.
The Ciociaria that we see today, however, was formed during the first centuries of the Middle Ages, through the civilizing work of the Benedictine Abbeys and the splendor of the Papal City. The Ciociaria is a land to discover and know through a journey into the past through history, myth, and legend following the steps of Ernici, Cicero, St. Thomas and St. Benedict.
