Photographer's Note

Clarignano Castle - Giano dell'UmbriarnrnrnIt is located on a hill at 355 meters above sea level, called La Torre by the IGM, facing the castle of Morcicchia, located about five hundred meters to the north. Sansi states that, in 1077, Clarignano was among the allied castles of Spoleto, but the news is of dubious reliability.rnClarignano is named in a donation of 1078.rnAt the end of the twelfth century it was owned by the Clarignano nobles who paid the fodro to the Church: Castrum Clarignanum quod est nobilium dominorum; solvunt homines pro fodro VI libras et pro adjutorio Nativitatis nn libras et pro adjutorio Pasce XL solidos et nichil aliud.rnThe mighty tower and faint traces of underground wall structures and the surrounding wall remain.
