The small town of Cassino is located at the foot of a bare mountain where the famous Abbey of Montecassino rises. It was founded in the 6th century by Saint Benedict of Nursia, the father of the homonymous Benedictine order. Not only did he innovate the Christian faith, but also the secular and economic life, well summarized with the meaningful rule “Ora et labora” (pray and work). The monastery has been destroyed and rebuilt several times during the centuries. Because of the continual reconstruction works different architectural styles have been mixed together: the main style is, of course, the Romanic but there are also oriental elements introduced by Byzantine artists who had been summoned by Victor III around the year 1000.
