Preci  

Preci is a hillside castle-town dating back to the 13th century which is located the Saint Eutizio Abbey, to whose fief it belonged before becoming part of Norcia 's territory. Following its ambitions for independence, the castle-town was destroyed twince in the 16th century. Definitive peace with Norcia, which came about in 1555, allowed the castle-town to be restored. This coincided with the flourishing of the surgical school that quickly became very famous. One need only refer to Durante Scacchi, who was Pope Sixtus V's archiater doctor, and his brother Francesco, who operated on the cataract of Queen Elizabeth I in 1588, to appreciate fame of this surgical school. Preci 's surgeons handed down their art from father to son and were specialists in operations involving cataracts and lithotomy (or lithiasis of the bladder). The presences of Preci 's numerous medical families with their palazzos gave a noble air to the town, which conserves the Medieval remains of the two ancient entrance doors and of the "Palazzetto della Comunità".
