Tagliacozzo

Description

Municipality in the Marsica area, in the province of L'Aquila, Tagliacozzo is located on the northern slopes of the mountains Simbruini, on the border with the Lazio Region. The name derives from "talus" (cut) and "cotium" (rock), which means "cut into the rock, indicating the development of urban settlement in a area that divides in two the mountain.
The territory was occupied, since ancient times, by the Marsi and the Equi , but the first documented reports date back only to the XII century. In 1173 the village submitted the rule of De Pontibus, then ceded to the Orsini, and finally the Colonna.
