ABOUT THE AREA
Macchiagodena is a town and commune in the province of isernia, (south central italy) located high in the Apennines mountains in the region of Molise.
The present name of the city appeared for the first time in a document of the year 964 CE as Maccia de Godena. it was a garrison post between the Lombard countdoms of isernia and Boiano, and later a sighting post along the Pescasseroli-Candela tratturo (shepherds’ track). A great number of feudal lords came one after the other to take control of the castle (due to the high vantage point overlooking the valley), including the Pandoni and the Mormile.
Many of the early to mid 20th Century inhabitants emigrated to numerous countries, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada and USA.
The Castle of Macchiagodena, with a polygonal plant, was constructed on one limestone cliff spur. Of the castle today, only the basements of the old wall and two towers remain. The Castello (Castle) was put up for sale and was purchased in November 2009 by the Regione of Molise. The Regione decided to purchase the castle for its preservation for public use and part of it may be used as a regional historical museum. Also noteworthy is the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, with a statue made by Francesco Saverio Citarelli from Naples, and a precious processional cross.
