  • In 1133 the town was again demolished by the Norman militias of King Roger II, who slaughtered all the Montepelosini for supporting the revolt of the Apulian barons. Only the religious buildings resisted, though damaged: the Cathedral of Santa Maria la Vecchia, prope moenia (near the walls), and the Church of Santa Maria Nuova, of Greek rite, erected extra moenia (outside the walls) in the district of Juso . In the same year Roger II donated the church and the monastery of Santa Maria di Juso to the French abbey of Chaise-Dieu, which made it the seat of a priory, while the old monks were killed with the rest of the population. The Normans were succeeded by the Swabians, whose greatest exponent, Emperor Frederick II, with the enactment of the Constitutions promulgated in Melfi in 1231, brought significant changes in the administrative and military fields. With the advent of the Angevins the city passed to King Charles I of Anjou, who gave it to his niece, who brought her as a dowry for the marriage with Bertrando del Balzo.

  • It became even more important after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, when the inhabitants scattered throughout the vast territory following the barbarian invasions, decided to take refuge in the highest and most inaccessible part of the area, settling in Montepeloso, protected also by strong walls . Romans, Lombards, Byzantines, Saracens, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Aragonese from time to time they had to integrate into native society, generating contaminations and disagreements. The first sources date back to the Middle Ages. The Pratilli in the Historia Principum Longobardorum tells of the donation of the Montepeloso forest, owned by the priest Dommino, to the monastery of Salerno in 914. The document describes the complete destruction by the Saracens of the city, in 988 rebuilt by the Lombard prince John II of Salerno. In the same period Montepeloso assumed a significant position in the struggle between the Latin Church and the Greek Church and, perhaps because of its importance, it was repeatedly destroyed by adverse factions and then rebuilt.

  • The origins of Irsina, up until 1895 Montepeloso, are very ancient. It stands on an area that belonged to the Enotri and then to the Lucanians, but, despite the numerous archaeological finds that testify that the hill has been inhabited since ancient times, there are no sources to date its birth. In fact, a relic has been found in the territory of Iresina, testimony to the most ancient European presence of homo erectus, dating back to the Lower Paleolithic; it is a flint found outside the city walls. In addition to prehistoric traces, the numerous archaeological finds, vases, magnogreche and Roman coins, weapons, furnishings and various memorabilia found both inside and outside the walls of the inhabited center, testify to its ancient grandeur already during the Greek Roman period . Its splendor was favored by its proximity to the Bradano river and the Herculea way, which from Venosa reached west to Potenza, east to Eraclea (now Policoro), crossing the Bradano valley.

  • Irsina, once Montepeloso, lies on the top of a hill, in a panoramic position, about 550 meters high. The ancient walls that embrace the historic center, the watch towers, the noble palaces, the small churches, the narrow alleys and the still visible access doors are very suggestive. Inhabited by homo erectus, a reference point for Greeks and Romans, a fortified center in the Middle Ages, it belonged to the most powerful families in Italy. Due to its strategic position, it saw the succession of Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Aragonese, who destroyed it several times and rebuilt it.

  • Irsina is a town and former Latin bishopric in the province of Matera, in the Southern Italian region of Basilicata. Once known as Montepeloso, Irsina is perched on a hill overlooking Italy’s grain plateau – in fact, the area produces a lot of the grain used to make pasta in the whole of Italy. Ancient walls embrace the historical center, the watchtowers, the elegant buildings, the small churches, the narrow alleyways and the old gates to the town. Churches and fountains are familiar landmarks. The town boasts an important 13th-century cathedral which was partly rebuilt at the end of the 18th century. The remains of a Norman castle have since been incorporated into the crypt of the former monastery of San Francesco.

In 1266, after the battle of Benevento, passed under the dominion of the Angevins, who donated it to Peter of Beaumont count of Montescaglioso and subsequently to Giovanni di Monfort. In 1307 it passed to the dominion of the Orsini del Balzo, that the lost as a result of the conspiracy of the barons, subentrarono when the Aragoneses. In 1586 it was purchased by the rich Genoese family of Grimaldi and finally passed to the Riario Sforza, who were the last feudal lords of Montepeloso. In 1799 it joined the risings republicans raising the tree of freedom, soon choked by the troops of Cardinal Fabrizio Ruffo. After the unity of Italy was affected by the phenomenon of brigandage. Certainly deserve a visit to the cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, the Church of the Convent of San Francesco and the Museo Civico Janora, which houses the collection of the historian and archaeologist irsinese Janora Michele. The irsinese economy is based largely on agriculture: in particular on cereal crops and vines. There are also numerous craft activities and different holdings: famous is the mozzarella di bufala campana.

In 1059 the Council of Melfi I, the Pontiff Nicholas II, elevates the County of Puglia to the Duchy of Apulia and entrusts to lineage Altavilla. The second Lord of the city, in 1068, is Goffredo, Count of Conversano, a nephew of Roberto il Guiscardo.

  • It was besieged and invaded in 895 by the Saracens, who in 988 destroyed; it was rebuilt by Prince Giovanni II of Salerno and was disputed between the Byzantines and the Normans. The territory of Irsina is at the center of the battle of Montepeloso, fought on 3 September 1041, at a short distance from the shores of the Bradano river. The Byzantine Army is guided by Augustus Bugiano (Boioannes); the Norman forces are controlled by Atenolfo, brother of the Prince of Benevento, that also coordinates the military the Lombards. The knights are led by William of Altavilla and Argiro. The Normans lanciano the first charge, while the Greeks accuse the coup and fall to hundreds. William I of Altavilla is sick but leaves his tent, placed above a hill and launches into the fray. According to the reporter Guglielmo di Puglia, the knights Normans sbaragliano the Byzantine forces and the troops that come from Calabria, from Sicily and from Macedonia and a group of mercenaries Pauliciani. According to the historian De Blosiis, hero of the battle is Gualtiero, son of Count Friend. The Byzantines are driven by Norman troops that are successful and, therefore, the city passed under the dominion of Norman. The Normans capture Augusto Bugiano, transfer it to Melfi together with the insignia Byzantine and then to Benevento the Deliver To Atenolfo.

  • Irsina (Montepelòse or Mondepelòse in irsinese dialect, up to 1895 called Montepeloso) has origins who perdone age greco-roman and this makes it one of the oldest towns of Lucania. From the Middle Ages until 6 February 1895 the name of the country was Montepeloso. As regards the etymology, it seems that the Montepeloso name derives from the Greek plusos, that means the land fertile and rich, amended in pilosum by the Latini. The current name seems to derive from the latin Irtium.

  • Irsina is a maze of small streets lined with the homes of the villagers, streets you think you might not fit your car through, that is until another car approaches and you both squeeze past each other. The pace is slow and the people are warm and want to share their lives with you. Each family has a plot of land outside the walls for their own gardens and if they grow more than they can use they place their excess in baskets for anyone to buy, just knock on the door and a warm “Salve” (Hello) will greet you.

  • During the dynasty of the "del Balzo", owners of the city for over a century and a half, Montepeloso lived periods of varying fortune, until, in 1483, it became the property of Federico d'Aragona and later of Onorato Gaetani d'Aragona, the which in 1586, having fallen into debt, had to give the barony to the Genoese noble Girolamo Grimaldi. Between 1644 and 1649, under the lordship of the Grimaldis, the city was the seat of the Dean and of the Royal Audience of Basilicata, that is of the Head of the Province and the Court. In 1664 Niccolò Grimaldi, heir to Girolamo, died leaving many debts, so much so that it was decided to auction off the feud, awarded to Mr. Tommaso di Guevara. After Guevara Montepeloso was ceded to Girolamo Riario, then to the Sforza and, finally, to the last lords of Montepeloso, the Nugent. Following the French Revolution of 1789 and, above all, the Neapolitan Revolution of 1799, the whole population, led by Giacomo D'Amati and by Bishop Lupoli, the last Bishop of Montepeloso, proclaimed the republican municipality. The Napoleonic domination in 1806, marking the end of feudalism, brought innovations that, somehow, improved the living conditions of the inhabitants.
