The other municipal hamlet is Barricelle. History[edit] Marsicovetere was an ancient city of the Marsi in the Agri River valley, later conquered by the Romans. In the year 1000 it was seat of a county. In 1498 King Frederick IV of Naples donated it to the Caracciolo family, who held it until 1777 save a brief parenthesis under the Di Palmas. In 1860 it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy. References[edit]
