Foligno (Umbria)

Foligno is an ancient town of Italy in the province of Perugia in east central Umbria, on the Topino river where it leaves the Apennines and enters the wide plain of the Clitunno river system. It is located 40 kilometres (25 miles) south-east of Perugia, 10 km (6 mi) north-north-west of Trevi and 6 km (4 mi) south of Spello.

The name of Foligno was famous for a noteworthy school of painting in the 15th century: it is also recorded for the famous Raphael's Madonna of Foligno (now in the Vatican), painted by the Urbinate artist for the nobleman Sigismondo di Comitibus, and for the first printed edition of Dante's Divina Commedia, printed on 5 and 6 April 1472 in the Orfini Palace by Johannes Neumeister and Evangelista Mei.

Main attractions of the city include: the Piazza della Repubblica and the adjoining Piazza Duomo.

What others are saying about Umbria

I am trying to find my Italian roots.  I have documents for my grandfather but I want to find his parents and grandparents.

I have names in my grandmother's line but I need help to validate my findings.  What sources can I use while I am in Italy.

Hi, does anyone have any recommendations for where to find an Italian/English speaking caretaker for a property we're buying in Umbria? 

@joncoh asks:

Hi there - it's time to renew our house/contents insurance, and yet again Intasure have bumped up their premium, this time by nearly 20%, despite the fact that we have never claimed, and they have also removed earthquake cover.
