Agnone The Essential
This old village in the Molise owes it fame to the Fonderie Pontificale Marinelli, the oldest bell factory in the world. The village is also home to an Italo-Argentinian theatre founded with funds raised from emigrants in South America. Via Garibaldi, lined with houses embellished by lions which bear witness to the community of Venetian merchants who once lived here, leads to the Ripa, a garden with fine views over the Verrino valley.
