The Umbria region
The region Umbria, located in the centre of Italy, is the only region in this area without sea shore.
Its territory is mainly formed by mountains and hills, giving the landscape a harmonious mildness. Umbria is also known as the Green heart of Italy.
Pietrafitta is located on 270 meters above sea level in the middle of rolling hills near a middle age monastery. The origin of the name recalls the geological past and the many stone mines that, once upon a time, were present in this area.
Giving a very rapid historical summary, Pietrafitta became important around the end of the 19th century when the "Società Terni" started to exploit the deposits of brown coal with the technique called "opencast mining" . After the Second World War this activity became regular and after approximately 20 years the deposits ran out. In order to honor this important origin of the area, a museum has been created, "Museo dei Fossili" which is located at the entrance of the village. Present findings of vertebrate fossils: fish, amphibians, deer, up to mammoth remains, dating back even to a million and a half years ago. The Museum is dedicated to Lugi Boldrini, miner from Pietrafitta who, in more than 50 years of work and research, created this important and unique collection.
Pietrafitta is one of the administrative divisions of Piegaro municipality. Piegaro is primarily known for its long history of glass (vetro) production from the Middle Ages to the 20th century (the windows glass of Duomo in Orvieto have been created by the Glass artists of Piegaro).
To commemorate the art of glass manufacturing, in April 2009 the Museo del Vetro was opened to the public, periodically in the Museum there are events and initiatives with glass artistis coming from different area of Italy and also from abroad.
An interesting spot to visit while in Pietrafitta is the Lake of artificial nature, originated from the quarry of brown coal that powered the old ENEL power plant. The filling of the lake dates back to 2000, giving rise to a water surface of about 120 HA with a maximum depth of about 15 Mt The lake is fenced and has a picnic area. Managed by FIPSAS (Italian Federation of Sport Fishing and Underwater Activities) hosts sport competitions, in 2011, hosted the World Championship Carpfishing and there are god possibilities that also the edition of 2014 will take place in Pietrafitta.
