Scanno is a town of about 1,800 inhabitants and is located at an altitude of 1,050 metres.
Already inhabited in Italic and Roman times, it has also preserved traditions dating back to the 1200s influenced by oriental-Ottoman migrations especially in women’s clothing. Indeed, the female headgear resembles a Greek “polos” (πόλος) or an Arab turban.
There is a goldsmith school dating back to the 16th century, for the working of gold and silver with the method of “lost wax” and filigree.
