  • The Rape of the Women

When the workers finished building the fortress, the inhabitants began to regret the lack of women and decided to go into the neighbouring towns of Canterano and Cerretorapendo to kidnap their women. To calm the other townspeople, it was decided to set up a festival of reconciliation by organizing a public dinner to which all were invited to participate even the original families of the abducted women. The party was organized by a Camerlengo and the main dish was the noodles (now called cecamariti). For about a hundred years, this banquet has been replaced with a reception offered by private citizens and the City.
