Cerasola - Cascia
Cerasola is a small village near the town of Colle Case Usigni, in the municipality of Cascia.
Recurs in the documentation ARCHIVE as monastic cell named "Ceresciole" and "Cerasciola" donated all`abbazia Farfa in 1081 (of which the parts of the Romanesque Church of St. Benedict, apse and portal, are ancient residual).
Nell`alto Middle Ages took the form of transit villa built on the slope of a hill the crossing of two mountain routes; the first (north-south) that combines Bevels and Torre Argentigli Rocca Tervi, then onward to Cascia; the second (west-east) which is the link between Bridge and Norcia. The two routes are unquestionably ancient; to try it would be the presence of the two fortified enclosures Torre Argentigli and Colle Puria, and the various finds of Roman inscriptions along their respective paths, some located right at the Church of St. Benedict (others have been registered on the Church of Santa Maria di Rocca Tervi). At the Church resided Benedictines of St. Eutizio until sec. XVI
The site of the old settlement is completely abandoned by the earthquake of 1964 (which irretrievably compromised, over Cerasola, the old centers Piandoli, Roccatamburo and Postignano); is currently used only for agricultural purposes (stables, warehouses and barns). A new small village was built further upstream due to the flattening of the artificial hill above the `old town.
