Culture & History

Diacceto’s origins are uncertain, possibly dating back to Roman times when it served as a post station. Its name is thought to have derived from “Ghiacceti,” a Latin term referencing cold sensation due to wind or caves storing snow. In medieval times, a tower was built, now incorporated into the 15th-century Cattani Palace, a testament to the town’s rich past. Notable figures from Diacceto include Jacopo da Diacceto, a 15th-century scholar and humanist.
