Greci, Province of Avellino, Campania, Italy
Located in the High Cervaro Valley, Greci was founded in 535 by Emperor Iustinianus, who stopped here during a battle against the Goths.
It was destroyed by the Saracens in 908 and rebuilt after 80 years. In 1522 a colony from Albania came over to populate the village, which explains the dialect spoken today and its traditions. Greci was a fiefdom of the Spinelli and the Guevara families.
