Valguarnera Caropepe

Valguarnera Caropepe, (Enna)
Valguarnera Caropepe (Sicilian: Carrapipi) is a comune in Sicily, Italy in the Province of Enna. Valguarnera Caropepe stands at an elevation of 590 metres (1,940 ft) above sea level in a hilly area of the Enna province.Founded in 1628 by Francesco Valguarnera, it saw a remarkable growth during the 18th century notably associated with the thriving sulfur mining industry in the area.The Chiesa Madre dedicated to Saint Christopher and the 18th century Palazzo del Municipio (the Town Hall), in the precincts of the former Monte Frumentario, are the most attractive buildings.Relics dating from between the 7th century BC and the 14th century AD have been unearthed in the archaeological area of Rossomanno, in the town surroundings.BibliographyGiacomo Magno, Memorie storiche di Valguarnera Caropepe, Catania, 1928Francesco e Silvia Giarrizzo, Valguarnera Caropepe all’epoca dei cavalieri e dei podestà, Assoro, 2001Enzo Barnabà, I Fasci siciliani a Valguarnera, Milano, 1981Enzo Barnabà (a cura di), Valguarnera da leggere, Valguarnera, 2003 (E.B.)Carmelo Parrinelli, "La memoria di quei giorni", Roma 2004 (Poesie)Carmelo Parrinelli, "Tra amore e odio, lo specchio maledetto dell'uomo", Roma 2004 (Poesie)Carmelo Parrinelli, "Nessuno tocchi il tacchino", Napoli 2005(Romanzo ironico)Carmelo Parrinelli, "Sotto gli occhi del Gatto Nero", Genova 2006 (Romanzo poliziesco)Pierluigi Bonanno, Carlo Bellone, Liborio Bellone, Angelo Bruno, Paolo Totò Bellone, Archeologia e Storia di Valguarnera Caropepe e Rossomanno, Assoro, 2006External linkshttp://www.carmeloparrinelli.it
