Inside the skeleton of an adult male was found, died as a result of decapitation and presenting various fractures due to sword blows. This decapitated individual was probably a member of the De Citillio family, whose members used to be buried in the atrium of the ancient church of San Biagio.

From the underground levels of the church also some frescoes, including one from the period 1000 - 1100 depicting the chimera, a mythological animal with three heads (shaped like a lion, snake and goat) and an unusual effigy in a sacred place.
In the beginning february the feast of San Biagio ( protector of throat) is interesting with blessing of people,s throats and several events
