Casarampi, museum of vernacular culture



Along the road leading from Foligno to Sellano, through Pale and Rasiglia, one follows the direction for Cammoro and then, after Molini, turns towards Orsano, an ancient castle of which unfortunately only scattered ruins remain. Past Orsano the road climbs up the slopes of Mount Purano to reach the small village of Casarampi, which takes its name from the Rampi family that has lived there since the 17th century.

The agglomeration consists of a handful of houses, in a panoramic position that opens up with a wide view over the Sibillini mountains. The hamlet develops along a single central street, once sealed at the two ends by two portals, of which no trace remains; there is a small church, dedicated to San Bernardino, the well and the oven that served the whole community, numbering some 60 individuals.

The architecture reveals the typical features of the area, with stratifications of typologies ranging from the Middle Ages to the 18th century, and is largely intact. Unlike many of the hamlets  in the area, now almost completely abandoned and neglected, Casarampi is an example of how these small villages can flourish thanks to the commitment of the inhabitants.
