Bagpipes in Italy? Yes. The beautiful medieval village of Scapoli is situated in a national park that is part of Molise, Abruzzi, and Latium. It is home to the Museo della Zampogna and also hosts an annual Bagpipe Festival, for example on July 29-31, 2011.

Talk about old. The city of Isernia has been around for over two years, but the area has known human habitation for some 700 thousand years and according to Science magazine is the most ancient site where traces of use of fire by men have been found. The Pontificia Fonderia Marinelli has been in the same family for almost one thousand years. It is said to be Italy's oldest family business.
