The Longobards in Italy. Places of the Power (568-774 A.D.)
is the official UNESCO title given to seven groups of historical monuments that embody the values of the Lombard people, Germanic tribes who settled in Italy between the 6th and 8th centuries AD.
These groups include monasteries, churches and forts, and became UNESCO World Heritage sites in June 2011 because they bear witness to the important part played by the Lombard people in European religious and cultural development during the transition between the Classical and Medieval periods.
The sites are located in Cividale del Friuli (Udine), Brescia, Castelseprio (Varese), Spoleto (Perugia), Campello sul Clitunno (Perugia), Benevento and Monte Sant'Angelo (Foggia).
