Castelcivita, whose population was mainly devoted to sheep farming, has a far past. In old Abjou documents is named as Civita Pantuliano, a little village described as characterized by fortifications.
At first sight, driving to the village, it looks like a cascade of houses that slides down from the mountaintop to the valley, a touch of pink, a color crayon in the middle of the green of the trees. It’s there the treasure of Casa Madaio. In a natural stone structure in which time captures the smells, the character of the mature cheeses, in order to translate flavors into a real experience of the senses.
In the spring, in the silent caves bundles of rosemary, bay and sage give irreproducible fresh fragrances that will enrich cheese. The finest ones: caciocavallo Vetus, the Mastorazio, the Cinerino, the Calcagno and Infossato.
