Some historical hints:

Sermoneta is a hill town and comune in the province of Latina (Lazio), central Italy.
The territory of Sermoneta was already populated in archaic times. In this area, where Abbey of Valvisciolo currently standing, were the ancient City of Sulmo, cited by Virgil in Eneide. The expansion of Pontine swamps and the invasions of the Saracens pushed the inhabitants of the ancient Sulmo to move to the present Sermoneta, which is mentioned with this name already in the 11th century.In 1297 Boniface VIII Caetani bought for 140,000 golden ducats, Sermoneta, San Donato and Bassiano by expanding its vast possessions. Since then, Sermoneta assumed a role of great importance, becoming an economic, political and cultural point of reference for its strategic location, which could control Pedemontana, the only link between Rome and Naples.
It is a walled hill town, with a 13th-century Romanesque cathedral called Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and a massive castle, built by the Caetani family. The Cistercian Valvisciolo Abbey is located nearby. The churches of San Giuseppe (mainly 16th century) and San Michele (mainly 12th century) still stand.
In the 13th-16th centuries, it was home to a flourishing Jewish community.
