In 2017, Picinisco, one of the towns which lie in Val di Comino, will celebrate its first Millennium. While undoubtedly older, the first mention of Picinisco is to be found in a document dated 6 March 1017, when the Princes of Capua restored to the Abbey of Montecassino the Monastery of S. Valentino to be found in the "Contea" di Comino in the area called Picinisco.
Val di Comino itself is, to coin a phrase, a Borgo Diffuso a town dispersed around the Valley in around a dozen districts each with a slightly different character and history. This celebration marks an important anniversary not only for Picinisco but also for the whole of Val di Comino, and our neighbours in Cassino, Sora, Filignano and, of course in the Ciociaria generally.

We are a group of Scottish Italians, who have proposed to the Comune of Picinisco that we help to raise funds to celebrate the Millennium of our ancestral village in conjunction with the efforts being made in Picinisco.
The celebrations will be religious, social and cultural, but at the same time we would hope the mood would allow us to contribute to some permanent recognition of our history, our achievements, our culture and our future.
