The town is still keeping an urban character that is typical of the Middle Ages, with various evidences of roman constructions. Examples are the roman settlement of the streets, the two main access door and the walls all around the town, the Roman Theatre with the ruins of ambulatories supporting the old tiers, the Roman Temple, the mosaic in the roman thermal baths, the three churches of San Silvestro, San Michele and San Domenico and, above all, the superb Piazza Silvestri, the very heart of Bevagna, with Palazzo dei Consoli, hosting Teatro Torti since 1886.
Town of Umbrian origin, Spello was a roman Colony during Triumvirate and Augustus’ period. With Costantinus was named Flavia Costans, as we learn from documents displayed in the town hall. The most important sites, from an artistic-historyc-religious point of view, are: the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, XIII-XVII century, famous for its Cappella Baglioni with frescos by Pinturicchio (1500 a.C.), Porta Venere, Properzio’s Towers, the Church of San Lorenzo, Augustus’ Arch and the Roman Amphitheatre (I century a.C.).
Also Gubbio, a town founded by the Umbrians - as testified by the Tavole Eugubine, has many signs of an old medieval structure. It is one of the most important and visited place in Umbria, with an increasing stream of tourism. Gubbio is located at the foot of three mountains: Foce, Ingino and D'Ansciano. Surrounded by solid medieval walls, Gubbio shows hystorical Palaces, Churches, Convents and craftsman’s shops.
Heart of Christian spirituality, Assisi has a special atmosphere of extraordinary fascination. The origins of the town date back to Umbrian people. In the following years Assisi had the influence of Etruscans but its final identity is due to Romans. We notice, in fact, tracks of Roman Empire in the Temple of Minerva, the Forum, the Amphitheatre.
After the downfall of Roman Empire, the town was conquered by the Goti and, later on, Byzantyns and Longobards. Around the year 1000 a.C., Assisi began to awake, with religious and cultural signs: Churches, Monasteries, Castles. Just during this period both St.Francis and St.Clare were born: thanks to them, the town of Assisi could enter the history of Italy and of the entire world.
