    The Acropolis of Arpino is an archaeological site near the town of Arpino, one of the most important for the knowledge of the megalithic architecture of southern Lazio, not only for the great extension of the walls but also for their age, greater than that of other sites (according to some in the middle of the Iron Age, VIII / VII century BC), and classified according to the scale devised by Giuseppe Lugli in the second way.

    The civitas vetus of the city represents one of the best preserved walls built in polygonal work in pre-Roman times. Of particular significance is the presence of a "pointed arch", the only surviving one of its kind in the whole Mediterranean area.

    This is a typical cantilever arch, which forms a so-called scea door.

Sora was then the seat of a county (the County of Sora) and later, from 1443, of the Duchy of Sora, a sort of buffer state between the Papal State and the Kingdom of Naples. Finally, in 1796, King Ferdinand IV of Naples (who then assumed in 1816, after the Congress of Vienna, the title of Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies) suppressed the Duchy of Sora, providing for the payment of the relative purchase price to Duke Antonio II Boncompagni.

    The origin of Isola del Liri is linked to the two Roman municipalities of Arpinum and Sora which divided the current municipal territory of the city. The conquests of the ancient Romans, who even arrived in Sannio, stabilized their presence for a long time in the lands of the current province of Frosinone.
    The city in the Middle Ages fell under the Byzantine and Lombard dominion, until it became part of the county of Sora in the Principality of Capua. Isola del Liri was the fief of the Isola family (de Insulae) from the 12th to the 14th century. Among the famous personalities of this family, were Roffredo dell'Isola, abbot of Montecassino, count of Arce, and Bartolomeo dell'Isola who enjoyed the honors in the seat of Capuano in Naples.
