King Otto I ,
Crowned Holy Roman
Emperor in 962 AD by Pope John XII, had advanced into Calabria and Puglia. Otto had marched for a
third time to Italy, where he stayed from 966 to 972. After he subdued Rome he advanced into the Byzantine south of Italy. The region of Basilicata (which the Romans called Lucania) was located in the middle.
King Otto saw it as a perfect location for his defense of the
Holy Roman Empire from the South. The fortress
he had built in San Fele was for protection against Byzantine incursions.
From this period the town of San Fele has followed along a little with all the events of
Italian history. It has been disrupted by landslides and by the disastrous earthquake of the eighties. SanFele has been greatly reduced in population by ongoing emigration so now when someone marries the Sanfelesi have a saying, 'another empty house'
