Frosolone, Bucolic charm
It seems that the name derives from Frosinone. Churches and Benedictine monasteries in the area from the XI century confirm, in fact, the bond with Frosinone and Montecassino, even if another source makes the toponym in a bird called “frisone” that appears in the municipal coat. The village is renowned for the production of knives and scissors and for the production of the milk produced by the cows in pasture, converted by farmers into a delicious caciocavallo, genuine scamorze, manteche and ricotte. The territory offers also truffles and mushrooms.
