The village of Bassiano stands on a hillock, surrounded by green and shady woods. An area with a great food and wine tradition, the famous 'prosciutto di Bassiano', the king of salami in the Lepini Mountains, is produced here, but the village's flagship products are many, including extra virgin olive oil, sausages flavoured with wild fennel seeds, and truffles, used in several traditional recipes, such as to season fettuccine and polenta. Finally, the town is the birthplace of Aldo Manuzio, humanist illustrator and publisher. A museum dedicated to him has been set up in the rooms of the Caetani palace, with the path of writing and printing perfectly integrated with the historical traces in the rooms and prison.
