It’s just over a year since the twinning agreement was signed between Talgarth and Pizzoferrato and a lot has happened in that first year! We have established a website and a “friends” association, held several fundraising do’s and welcomed the first delegation from Pizzoferrato to visit Talgarth. They were very impressed with the warm welcome they received and have issued an invitation for a return visit during the first week of August 2016. Lots of people have expressed an interest in this trip and I’d now like to firm up on the numbers likely to be involved, so if you haven’t already told me you are keen or would like further details, please get in touch and I will add your name to the provisional list.


Members of the Pizzoferrato community, located in the Abruzzo region of Italy, visited Talgarth between 30 April and 4 May, greatly furthering the positive and growing relationship between the two towns.

GT6R8320Arriving in Talgarth on Thursday, the Pizzoferrato delegates were warmly welcomed at an informal evening reception held at the Bakers’ Table, Talgarth Mill. The well-attended event was held in a warm and convivial atmosphere where the Italian guests generously supplemented the refreshments with Italian foods brought with them from home.

The delegation explored Talgarth by foot on Friday morning and was welcomed at the Community Primary School where students presented an illustrated profile of Talgarth and the surrounding area. Friday afternoon saw the delegation visiting Hay, including a tour of a local brewery.

GT6R8212On Saturday morning, the Mayor of Talgarth, Councillor Andy Lord and Palmerino Fagnilli, the Mayor of Pizzoferrato, jointly unveiled a sign mounted on the front of the Town Hall, celebrating the twinning of the two towns. Roger Williams MP, William Powell AM and Mike Davies, the Conservative election candidate supported the event along with many Talgarth residents.

Two senior representatives of the Abruzzo Regional Assembly Government arrived on Saturday afternoon. They took part in a meeting at Talgarth Town Hall on Sunday morning with representatives of the Town council, other local organisations and the Mayor of Pizzoferrato in an exchange of ideas for future development. Topics of mutual interest included education, tourism, rural affairs, local culture and sport.

Talgarth Town Hall was the location for a traditional Welsh Supper held on Sunday evening in honour of the guests. Over 100 people, local residents and guests, celebrated a successful and enjoyable holiday weekend. A musical interlude by the Talgarth Male Voice Choir completed the evening.

20150503_215229The Pizzoferrato and Abruzzo delegations departed Talgarth on Monday after a weekend that cemented existing relationships and propagated many new ones.

Pizzoferrato is located in the Abruzzo region of Italy, about 60 miles south of the east coast resort town of Pescara, also the closest airport. Rome is about 130 miles to the west, Naples is 90 miles or so due south. Driving conditions in the area are similar to the less inhabited and more mountainous parts of Wales.

The town-twinning project is a first for both Pizzoferrato and Talgarth and was set up in June 2014. The project takes advantage of the many similarities between the two communities. Both towns have a similar population size living in mountainous terrain, within a national park and with large lakes close by. Its aim is to promote the two towns through various activities such as fairs, exhibitions and festivals and twinning of the two primary schools. We will co-operate and exchange information in the areas of the arts, sport, tourism, culture and the preservation of cultural heritage.

Both Pizzoferrato and Talgarth are inside the borders of two important National Parks: Parco Nazionale della Majella and Brecon Beacons National Park.
