Foiano di Val Fortore rises up on the first folds of the Adriatic side, at the bottom of a valley and the left of the river Fortore surrounded by mountains. The village has been part of the Province of Benevento since 1861, after belonging first to the Province of Foggia (until 1811) and then to that of Molise. Foiano is distant 43 kilometres from Benevento and is situated at 520 metres above sea level. It is easy to understand that the entire area that surrounds Foiano di Val Fortore takes its name from the river with the same name (Fortore river) which is also a natural border between the Campania, Molise and Puglia regions.
