CASTELL'ARQUATO

Description
Lying in Placentianum Pliocene hills, Castell'Arquato offers a very suggestive setting, which in effect was chosen for some films (Lady Hawk). As far as planning is concerned, Castell'Arquato is made of the village, with Borghetto and Monteguzzos quarters, and the monumental centre. Probable Roman site, it belonged to Piacenzas bishop until 1220, then was handed over to several lords, from the Scotti, to the Visconti and Sforza, up to Camera Ducale di Parma. Its main resources are represented by agriculture, craftmanship and tourism. It has recently been included in Italys most beautiful boroughs and has been awarded the Orange Flag by Touring Club Italiano.
