Photographer's Note

Cesi rises suspended between sky and earth, on a spur of calcareous rock on the ridge of Mount Torre Maggiore, first appendix of the Monti Martani, at 437 meters above sea level and is rightly called the "balcony of the Terni basin".
The castle overlooks with a magnificent view of the valley of Terni and the wide mountain chain that surrounds the Umbrian capital.
The place was already fortified by populations of Umbrian-Sabine origin already five centuries before Christ, and housed a small town, Clusiolum "supra Interamna" mentioned by Pliny, which perhaps however stood in a higher position than today's Cesi, presumably near the church of Sant'Erasmo.
