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.

Buongiorno tutti.  We have owned a home in Ficulle for about 5 years.  Our caretaker and his wife have recently told us they will no longer be able to care for our home.  So we are in need of help to clean, care for our 80 vines, 30 very young olive trees, take care of the lawn, plants welcome gu

@Montie55 asks:

Hi everyone, we have a property in Mirabella, Panicale but live in the UK.  With not being able to get out there at the moment are looking for some help with maintenance.  Does anyone have a contact for an English speaking person or company that could help?
