Amadeo: A Small but Strong History
Amadeo might be a typical small town; nevertheless, it has an interesting history that you would want to know. Amadeo should not only be known because it is the coffee capital of the Philippines, but also because of its astonishing beauty and rich culture.
Amadeo started as a sitio called Gitnang Pulo for it lies in the midst of its mother town, Silang. It became a favorite hunting place for its prolific land, abundant rivers and springs and vast forest. Deep in its forest, dapdap trees are abundant that bore bright red flowers that were glaring to the eyes after it shed its leaves (masilaw). The name of the town was later changed into Masilaw.
Later, during the Spanish regime the name changed to Amadeo which came from the name of Prince Amadeo I, second son of King Victor Emmanuel II who ruled Spain in 1871. The town was named after him since the Prince’s birthday coincides with the inauguration of the town which is May 30.
In 1902 Amadeo's name was reverted back into a district of Silang. Some locals opposed Amadeo being a town so they secured its separation form Silang. Thirteen years passed and the town regained its independence with the help of Gov. Antero S. Soriano. In recognition for what he has done, he became the first municipal president of Amadeo, under the American regime. Until now, the town of Amadeo is trying to gain recognition and respect, maintaining its independence while striving to reach the peak of success.
