Narnia is not only the magic world where you can enter through
a wardrobe. Narnia is also a real place in Italy, far from Rome
less than one hour. In this town there are not lions and witches,
but it doesn’t mean there are not other fantastic things
to discover. Famous classical writers, as Livio, Tacito and Plinio
the Young, have told passionate pages about Narnia. Its glorious
past was an irresistible inspiration for author C.S.Lewis, and he marked
the name on an old map of Italy. Narnia had a particular strategical
importance during the Roman Ages, fascinating ruins of that time
are still visible. And other
magnificent archaeological finds are coming to light just now.
Narni is today a beatiful medieval town with suggestive narrow
streets, important churches and other buldings all made during
the middle ages. An important festival is usually held on the
month of May, all the medieval atmospheres are rievocated, with
parades and very exciting knight tournament.
