Terre di Canossa


Contributor Mark59 created this stunning drone video of Canossa, a castle town in the province of Reggio Emilia in north-central Italy.  The 10th century castle is the site of one of the most famous events of the Middle Ages.  In January, 1077, Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV arrived here after a long trek to meet with Pope Gregory VII, who was a guest at the castle.  Seeking a reversal of his ex-communication, he was forced to stand in the snow at the castle gates for three days before being granted an audience.
