A note from the mayor
We are truly pleased about the recent re- launch of tourism in Cerreto Sannita. We have done a lot to develop tourism in this planned city, inverting the trend Pasquale Santagata mayor of Cerreto Sannita of foreign tourism to better- known destinations, through activities targeted at the recovery of the urban landscape and the re- launch of the local porcelain crafted in Cerreto. We can now count on a tourist offer that includes nature and scenic panoramas, local products and history - thanks to the recent opening of the Ceramics Museum - and archaeology. With regard to the latter, the injection of significant investments is still ongoing: the old city of Cerreto Sannita, destroyed by an earthquake in 1688, with its medieval tower, is currently the focal point of an important project targeted at its recovery and enhancement. A place of enormous archaeological interest, it has been defined by archaeologists as the “medieval Pompeii.
