A wine and its native land: Canosa
The Apulian settlement of Canusium, near the Ofanto river and thus ideally situated to control this major waterway, was built on a hill, on the same site as the modern town. Founded by Diomedes, or so the legend goes, it became a Roman town in 318 AC and took in the survivors of the Roman army defeated in the battle of Canne. First a municipium and then a colonia during the Imperial Age, it was famous for its wool industry and pottery production.

A diocese since the 4th century, it was devastated by barbarian raids and only regained its prosperity under the Longobards. An archiepiscopal see under Byzantium, in 840-70 it was destroyed by the Saracens. A prosperous town under Norman rule (11th-12th centuries), damaged by dynastic wars during the Angevin period (14th-15th centuries), in 1502 it heroically stood by the Spaniards against the French, who only managed to occupy it after a long siege. In 1530 it was given to Charles V by Philibert of Orange. It was plagued by bandits and earthquakes for a long time.
