It is a small municipality in the north-western Apennines known for its pecorino cheese, a product that obtained the recognition of the protected designation of origin (PDO) in 2007.
In addition to the food and wine aspects, there are also very prominent cave paintings found in Tuppo dei Sassi, where today stands the prehistoric site “Riparo Ranaldi”, which represents the oldest cultural testimony of human settlement in Basilicata. Portraying fascinating hunting scenes linked to propitiatory rites, the paintings date back to the Paleomesolithic age and are characterised by a warm red colour spread with the fingers. The sacred thread that starts from this corner of the village finds a continuation in the churches of Santa Maria del Rosario and San Giuseppe.
