San Marzano di San Giuseppe

San Marzano di San Giuseppe is the largest Arbëreshë municipality in Italy (in Apulia there are also other Arbëreshë communities, such as Casalvecchio di Puglia and Chieuti).

Almost 500 years have passed since Demetrio Capuzzimati, the noble captain of Giorgio Skanderberg (a national Albanian hero who died in 1468 after a heroic resistance against the Turks), escaped to subdue Mohammed II, settled with some noble Albanian families in Taranto and bought from the Royal Court, for 700 ducats, the feud of San Marzano.
