A picturesque farming town of the Ciociaria area in the province of Frosinone, Viticuso is the most eastern municipality of the region of Lazio, surrounded by a predominantly karstic area, on the border with the region of Molise, the province of Isernia and the territories of Venafro. The village was founded in the Middle Ages by the monks of Monte Cassino, nearby the Lake Viticuso (now dried up). It later submitted the domain of the Normans, the Lords of Venafro, that built a castle, whose ruins are still visible, despite the earthquake of 1915 and the bombing of the Second World War.
