Guardiagrele, the "city of stone" narrated by Gabriele d'Annunzio of the "Triumph of Death", is a village with ancient history: colonized by the Benedictines who built a monastery on the site, it had its maximum splendor around the twelfth century. The town planning and the architecture of the center bear traces of this past: millenary towers, churches, old houses and narrow alleys, the village enchants with its story of medieval atmospheres. However, the heart of Guardiagrele's identity is its craftsmanship: the town saw the birth of schools of high perfection and prominent figures such as Nicola da Guardiagrele, a pupil of Ghiberti, and still enchants with the art and craft creations that are made here, among the splendid artifacts of the goldsmith's art.
