Bivongi

BIVONGI



Bivongi rose on the right shore of Stilaro surrounded by mount Consolino and elevations of Serre. Its history started about the year 1000 and it had linked to the convent of Apostles, grange of Greek monastery of Arsafia that Ruggero the Norman gave toCertoso of Serra San Bruno until 1807. The place name dates back to Greek origins and it means “terra dei buoi” (oxen’s land). Centre of Byzantine spirituality, it holds the monastery of San Giovanni Therstis that receives orthodox monks of mount Athos. It was important thanks to mining extraction that for a long time was one of the most significative activities. Until the first years of the second postwar it was interested to the extraction of molybdenum. It is famous for being the birthplace to Tommaso Martini, eighteenth century painter, pupil of Solimena.
