The Castle of Fumone  - The castle of Fumone is A clutch of quiet lanes built around a castle. Less then 40 people live within the walls.  The name translates roughly to “big smoke,” and this fortified village was used in ancient times to send smoke signals warning Rome of advancing intruders. The town is a charming labyrinth of narrow cobblestone lanes. Still property of the Marquises Longhi De Paolis, the fortress is a valuable example of an aristocratic residence with a strong military and medieval character. Its position at the top of Monte Fumone (783mt), which also offers a splendid view from the Liri Valley to the Colli Albani, already indicated its different functions, strategic, political and residential. In medieval times, its strategic location led it to be part of an authentic communication system, aptly summed up in an ancient motto: “Si Fumo fumat, tota Campania tremat”, which means "when there is a smoke sign from Fumone, people from Campania - the medieval name of Ciociaria - trembled".
