PERUGIA

Perugino’s Last Works at Fontignano

Fontignano is a small village between Perugia, Città della Pieve and Lake Trasimene, built on the slopes of a hill surmounted by the ruins of a Medieval castle. The oldest buildings in the village, such as the Hospitale and the church of the Annunziata, receive mention in documents as early as the 12th century.

PERUGIA

San Sisto - An Impregnable Fortress

11th century maps intidate that San Sisto and Sant’Andrea delle Fratte were two different fortresses known as Sansoste and Sant’Andrea delle Fratte. Both castles stood along the main communication routes that ran through the lands controlled by Perugia, today Via Pievaiola and Viale San Sisto, in what is today the Porta Santa Susanna quarter of town.

PERUGIA

Civitella d’Arna - At the Centre of the Valley of the Umbrians

Once they had consolidated their hold over Perugia, the Etruscans built two city-fortresses on the other side of the Tiber: Vettona (Bettona today) and Arna. Both these cities were in the lands that had been controlled by the Umbrians, between the river Tiber and the Apennines. The word “arno” in Etruscan stood for “the current of the river”. Arna was therefore a riverside city for the Etruscans.

PERUGIA

St Orfeto - A Mysterious Roman Legionary

The small church dedicated to St Orfeto, a Roman legionary who presumably converted to Christianity at some point in his life, stands on a hillock that commands excellent views towards Monte Subasio and Monte Tezio, not far from the village of San Marco at the meeting point between the roads that come from Monte Pacciano and Monte dei Conservoni.

PERUGIA

Ripa.."dolcissimo ai mortali almo soggiorno"

The village of Ripa numbers roughly 1,000 inhabitans and stands at 313 metres above sea level, on top of a hill between the river Tiber and the river Chiascio. The climate is rendered so mild by the proximity of these two rivers that in the 18th century the poet Annibale Mariotti exclaimed “…dolcissimo ai mortali almo soggiorno”, which translates roughly as “...this sweet sojourn for the mortal soul”.

PERUGIA

Typical products

From the Torciglione to the Torta al Testo, and mushrooms along the way. The delicious torciglione cake keeps for several days and is made only from sweet and bitter almonds, eggs and sugar. Torta al Testo is similar to the Jewish azyme bread mentione in the Bible 2000 years before Christ. This ancient bread uses only basic ingredients such as flour, water and salt. Ingredients and recipes to follow.

PERUGIA

The Route of the Four Bell Towers

This is a simple itinerary aimed at those who want get a taste of the architectural and natural sights around Perugia. Totalling 11.5 kilometres, the route takes between 3 an 4 hours of walking, with four stops along the way: Santa Maria di Cenerente (1300s church); Castello dell’Oscano; Sant'Orfeto; San Marco.

PERUGIA

Monte Tezio: a Natualist's Paradise

The hills that run from Perugia towards Monte Tezio are a virtually incontaminated natural environment that supports a broad variety of bird and plant life. The fluctuating contours of this area create variations in altitude, and therefore in habitat, ranging from the 300 metres a.s.l. Of the valley regions to the 600 metres a.s.l. of Monte Pacciano to the 1000 a.s.l. metre peak of Monte Tezio.

PERUGIA

Stepping into Another Dimension at Mugnano

Not part of the beaten tourist trail, Mugnano and its inhabitants still live according to the age-old pace dictated by farming and the seasons. The mere thousand inhabitants of this small village still talk a language that is rich in agricultural references and metaphors, making Mugnano a place that offers a simple but traditional welcome to visitors.

PERUGIA

Santa Maria di Cenerente and the Monferrato Marauders

The parish of Santa Maria di Cenerente appears in documents as early as 1364, the year in which the war raging between Florence and Pisa extended to this area in the form of devastation inflicted at the hands of the soldiers of the Marchese Giovanni di Monferrato. In 1559 the parish appears listed as part of the parish of Santa Firmina. By 1577, however, Santa Maria Maddalena di Cenerate had once more risen to a position of central importance in the area.

PERUGIA

The Fontana Maggiore

With the completion of the acqueduct that brought running water into the centre of Perugia and the inauguration of the monumental fountain powered by those waters in Piazza Grande, in 1278 the city could finally rely on its own waters in the event of a siege.

PERUGIA

The Rocca Paolina

Serafino Siepi (1776-1829) wrote that the building of the Rocca Paolina was practically finished in just three years. The fortress covered a vast area over the Colle Landone district, formerly known as one of the finest quarters of the city. Very little remains of the fortress today, although a number of period prints, drawings and paintings give an idea of just how imposing this structure must have been once.

PERUGIA

Palazzo dei Priori

Built between the 13th and 15th century, the impressive Gothic architecture of Palazzo dei Priori is an indication of the power and pride of the city of Perugia at the time. A fan-shaped staircase built into the 13th century section of the building is flanked by two two-mullioned windows and leads up to the Sala dei Notari. The chains and bars placed hanging above were removed from the gates of the city of Siena by the troops of Perugia.

PERUGIA

Etruscan Burial Grounds in Perugia

It is still unclear when the first Umbrian settlers occupied the hill on which Perugia stands today. Between three and four thousand years ago is a reasonable assumption. At some stage, however the Umbrian village must have been replaced by an Etruscan occupier and transformed into a powerful city-fortress. The remains of a thick line of fortifications at the summit of the hill of Perugia, along with the richness of the tombs left by the Etruscans, are indications of the importance of the city in those times.

PERUGIA

Pila: an Archaeologist's Paradise

To the southwest of Perugia, the area around Pila has proved to be particularly rich in archaeological finds dating back to Paleolithic times. All the material unearthed here, which ranges from discs to arrow heads and scraping instruments, is kept at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Perugia. The abundance of flint present is proof that the area was populated by man in the quaternary period.
