Wonderful Article! I had the good fortune to join Jim on a trip to the area in May 2011. I learned so much more about Civita D'Antino and the Valle Roveto from Jim during that one trip than I had in the last 30 years of visiting there. He has studied this area extensively and is extremely knowledgeable. Pictures do not do it justice. The food is wonderful and the people are genuinely kind. You must visit to experience the true beauty of Civita and the valley. If you love beauty, nature and history this is the perfect place to visit. My mother was also born and raised in Civita D'Antino. Thanks for the great experience Jim!
