We publish the speech by Pasquale Fucci, mayor of Arpaia, in Campania, where free hotspots have been activated and which joins the Municipalities that have joined the WiFi Italia Project.
“Being part of the public and free Wifi Italia network is a way to enhance our municipality which stands along the Via Appia, a few kilometers from Benevento, at the foot of Mount Castello, on the slopes of the Partenio massif.
Archaeological evidence attests to the presence of an urban settlement since the Samnite era. Due to its particular strategic position, the town of Arpaia, a few kilometers away from the nearby urban center of Caudium (today's Montesarchio), represented a defensive point capable of resisting sieges of a certain military significance. According to some scholars, who refer to Tito Livio, this would be the place of the "Forche Caudine", the episode that went down in history for the humiliation of the invincible Roman army by the Samnites.
In the Middle Ages it became a fortified citadel, so much so that artefacts are still visible today inside the ancient historic city center such as: the tower at the beginning of via della Corte, the city walls, the tower in the Corte dei Cavalieri area, the discovery of tombstones dating back to around the 11th century. it was part of the province of Caserta, with the creation of the province of Benevento in 1861 it definitively passed into the Benevento Sannio”.
