The two medieval villages are located very close together, forming a small community. There are about 3000 inhabitants, mainly living there for the fruit and wine production, as well as for the animal breeding. In the 18th century, this municipality was known for the production of shears. In the course of time the production of shear was replaced by small workshops with furniture manufacturing.
Monte Porzio is a very quiet community, which is only comes lively due to the fruit and vegetable markets. Castelvecchio is older than Monte Porzio and is still surrounded by the medieval city wall. Apart from Villa La Palombara, a there is a small grocery store and 2 restaurants, there are no other public points. Other restaurants can be found in the valley along the main road.
