Montone (Umbria)

Montone is a walled medieval village in the Province of Perugia in the Italian region Umbria, located about 35 km north of Perugia. The town is the origin of the Fortebracci condottieri family, whose most famous member was Braccio da Montone. The most important religious building the Gothic Church of San Francesco which hosts the Umbrian frescoes, some attributed to the master Bartolomeo Caporali, and interesting wooden sculptures. The church is also the home of the Municipal Museum, which holds paintings, silver, and sacred vestments of great artistic value and, on the ground floor, the Ethnographic Museum, with over 600 items from Eastern Africa. Just outside the center one finds the Rocca d'Aries, an imposing castle which has been returned to its ancient splendor by painstaking restoration work.

Ciao everyone,

@Cripps 44 asks:

Hi. Does anyone know of an English builder that they could recommend for renovation work on a property in southern Umbria.  Roofing, plumbing, heating etc.

Hi - first time poster! I know there's a few threads on here already about terracotta (cotto) tiles but we're in need of some advice for a specific situation and was hoping someone out there could help us.
