Papigno - Dark alley

The center dominates the Valnerina from its 222 meters above sea level, located near the Marmore Falls, its history is closely linked to that of the famous water jump, as - in the industrial age - the Galleto power plant (a word belonging to in Papigno) produced hydroelectric energy for the industrial purposes of the city of Terni, and this, together with the exploitation of hydrocarbon, confirmed its economic importance.
The territory of Papigno has repeatedly brought to light Roman testimonies outside the inhabited center, which was formed during the first centuries of the Middle Ages on an isolated relief and in a privileged position for the defense and sighting of the two important roads: the Valnerina and the Via Curia, which climbing the slopes of Mount Sant'Angelo up to the Marmore, leads to Rieti.
