The Umbria region
Umbria, the "green heart of Italy"
Are you fascinated by landscapes and campaniles, fertile fields and picturesque woodlands, towns and villages with ancient palaces, churches and towers?
Would you like to discover a hardworking population whose character has been forged over the centuries, cultivating the land alongside profound religious sentiment?
Are you interested in encountering a population that has established solid institutions, in a region that has embraced the natural world beloved by saints and the modern one marked by social development?
Would you like to learn about a modern society that has never forgotten its past, explore landscapes that look like something from a Nativity scene, probe the vestiges of the past in museums, savour the fruits of the earth in an atmosphere redolent of wine and olives, and come across the stages of theatre and music and poetry in towns marked by human ingenuity that move to the beat of jazz, juxtaposed with ancient airs sung by medieval choirs?
Then come and discover Italy’s big little heart: a place known for its natural lifestyle and leisurely pace.
Come to Umbria, the “green heart of Italy”.
Bevagna Bevagna is a town of 5,024 inhabitants in the province of Perugia. It was once known for the cloths made here, the so called “Bevagna cloths”, which were made from the best hemp and were prized all throughout the Papal States. Bevagna is proud to be included in the Borghi più belli d'Italia(the most beautiful villages in Italy association).
As a Roman town (called Mevania), it was relatively prosperous during the Imperial Era. Roman ruins (a theater, baths with exquisite mosaics, the remains of a temple from the second century AD and a Roman Domus) and charming medieval architecture combine to make a pleasant visit to this village.
Among the most important monuments are the Palazzo dei Consoli, dating back to 1270, which now houses the Teatro Torti; Piazza Silvestri which is one of the most important medieval squares in the region and is dominated by both Saint Michele’s Church, built in the late twelfth century, and by Saint Silvestro’s Church which was completed in 1195. In the municipal museum there are many paintings from the Umbrian school as well as some important sculptures.
Each year in the last 10 days of June, Bevagna is transformed once again into its medieval glory. The Mercato delle Gaite(the ancient name for the city’s neighborhoods) consists of parades, races and traditional dishes prepared according to antique Umbrian recipes. Antique Bevagna comes back to life in the wearing of both festive and everyday costumes of the time.
