Welcome!    Benvenuto!

On behalf of the members of The Craco Society, I welcome you to our website.  Whether you are a Society member or a guest just visiting the site, I hope you will find it of interest and value to you.

As you look through the site, please bear in mind that town of Craco, Italy can trace its origin back over a millennium and a half. Although “Craco Vecchio” is no longer inhabited, it remains robust in the minds and hearts of the Crachesi people everywhere.

Craco is a village which cannot be forgotten. Its haunting beauty has been the setting for several movies. Besides being the subject of a segment in a television special, it continues to serve as the site, even now, for a new movie production taking place there.

But it is not solely the physical beauty of the location that causes Craco to captivate people. Rather, for the people living there today and the descendants of those from there, “Craco is in their blood.”  For these people being “Cracotan” carries with it a connection to a culture, language, and a way of living that is unique.

As you explore this site, I hope you will come to recognize and enjoy those aspects of Craco and its people.
