(Photos 23-24-25) – The Chiesa di San Benedetto is a Catholic church in the city of Frosinone, located in Piazza della Libertà, near the Cathedral.

The current church is the result of a reconstruction in the second half of the 18th century, in late Baroque style. The restoration lasted more than 40 years and in 1798, only a year after its inauguration, it was looted by Napoleon’s Polish cavalry. Fortunately, the most important relics were saved because they were hidden under the floors of the crypt or entrusted to the parishioners. The church has a single nave, with a barrel-vaulted ceiling and lunettes. On the walls there are paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries. On the sides of the transept there are two altars dedicated to the families: Grappelli and Kambo, who host their tombs1. The most remarkable feature of the church is the painting of the Madonna del Buon Consiglio, linked to the miracle of 1796. (Photos 25-26-27)

Frosinone Cuisine:- Frosinone is a city and province in the Lazio region of central Italy. It has a rich culinary heritage that reflects its rural and pastoral traditions. Some of the local foods you have to try in Frosinone are:- Peperone di Pontecorvo: This is a fresh pepper of the Cornetto variety grown within the province of Frosinone. It is distinguished by its sweet flavor, a very thin skin, and delicate flesh. Thinly sliced, Pontecorvo peppers are excellent in various salads, but they’re also often grilled or preserved in oil and served with charcuterie and cheeses. – Fagiolo Cannellino di Atina:- These are white beans of the Cannellino variety grown in the province of Frosinone, on the fertile alluvial plains along the banks of river Melfa and the Mollarino stream. These extremely tender beans have a skin so thin they don’t need to be soaked before cooking, which makes them one of Italy’s favorite. Particularly sweet and creamy when cooked, they are found in every classic minestrone, various vegetable soups and bean salads, typically mixed with tuna, red onions and green beans. – Pecorino di Picinisco:- This is an uncooked, hard cheese made with raw sheep milk produced throughout the entire Comino Valley in the Province of Frosinone. It is available in two varieties, Scamosciato (semi-matured) and Stagionato (matured), both of which are quite different in appearance and flavor. While Scamosciato has a sweet flavor and a strong aroma of mountain pastures, the Stagionato variety is more intense and full bodied, with pronounced spicy notes. – Cesanese del Piglio:- This is a ruby red Italian wine that is almost entirely produced from local Cesano grapes (both Cesanese Comune and Cesanese d’Affile varieties). It is typically a well-balanced, medium-bodied wine that usually displays floral notes and aromas of ripe dark berries, with underlying nuances of herbs and spices. It pairs well with charcuterie, red meat, lamb, and local meat dishes such as coda alla vaccinara.
