Poggioreale

Piazza Elimo

The new Poggioreale is displaced on overlapping bastions, each one in a ring around a circular square; the scenographic piazza Elimo was designed by the famous architect Paolo Portoghesi. However, the identity of Poggioreale is not to be found in its new inhabited centre, but in the striking ruins of the old “ghost town” which was abandoned following the earthquake of 1968. In the later archaeological site of “Castellazzo” one can discover the most ancient history of the territory and enjoy one of the most suggestive views over the province that anyone could imagine. If the agricultural vocation of the territory is seen in the small ethno-anthropological Museum, the town regularly becomes animated with festivals and events which offer the visitor the flavours and colours of ancient traditions, including the Sagra della ricotta e dei Formaggi – Ricotta and Cheese Festival, the Sagra della Muffuletta – Muffuletta Festival and the Calici di stelle – Chalices of the stars.
