The Umbria region
Umbria is the green heart of Italy.
One of the smallest regions of Italy keeps intact the traces of its past. Umbria holy warrior Umbria, Umbria green: all adjectives that describe this earth, but that alone can not enclose the multiple aspects. Perugia and all other cities of Umbria are able to offer visitors a rich artistic and cultural heritage, nestled in a charming landscape, a landscape that still retains something old and is anxious to fight the ugliness of industrialization and progress. Umbria is the region where folk events, exhibitions and traditional festivals play a very important meaning: preserving diversity, localism and traditions that the globalized civilization tends to break down.Assisi,Gubbio,Todi,Orvieto,Perugia,Spello,Trevi,Montefalco and many many others.....
Torgiano's ancient history dates back to the Etruscan period: an acumulation of knowledge throughout the years has transformed Torgiano into an area full of traditions and suggestions.
Infact some of the findings recovered from the areas around Torgiano aand Brufa appear to confirm the hypothesis of the precence in this area of small Etruscan settlements, possibly on the borders of the areas occupied by the people of Umbria and delimited by the course of the Tiber rver.
The drainage process of the residual swamps of the Tiberino Lake.
On 9th March 1274 the City of Perugia, acting in the framework of a demographic, agricultural and economic expancion policy towards the Tiber plains and after having purchased several pieces of land for this specific objective, deliberated the re-foundation of the “Castrum Torsciani”. In the years to come the City of Perugia increased urban development as well as the economy of the entire area, while the castle of Torgiano began to look more nd more like a fortified town.
