Beyond the piazza, another high point is the river Clituno that runs along one side of town, which was subject to a later urban intervention to build a bridge and piazza over a small dam.
In the countryside just outside of Torgiano, keep your eyes open for seemingly random sculptures.It is recognized for its lovely piazza Silvestri, which actually has not one (as would be normal) but two churches on it as well as a city hall and a 19th-century theatre.Of the history you can’t see, Bevagna was actually established as a Roman town in 90 AC, called Mevagna, and there are traces of a Roman temple and the footprints of its forum visible.Torgiano is a town I’ve always associated with wine thanks to the wine museum here, which was sponsored by the important winery Lungarotti.MUVIT was created by the Lungarotti family in 1974 and presents 5000 years of history organized through various themes, from objects and depictions of wine in the ancient world, to more modern ceramics used for “drinking games”, to images of dionesian fun through the ages.Instead, I dragged the family out to explore a few things within an hour’s range.
Small town Umbria is the perfect destination for the true Italy lover who has seen and loved the big stuff and now wants to sit back and live the good life: a bottle of wine, some sausages and a sunset with green hills as far as the eye can see.
I’d heard about Bevagna because it is a “bandiera arancione” town, an award given by the Italian Touring Club to the very cutest towns with a series of regulations (they can’t be on the coast, they must have fewer than 15k residents and must be organized to welcome tourism).
The walled, medieval town of Bevagna (population 5000) indeed fits the bill.
) the town of Piegaro, known, if at all, for its glass factory (old and new), which really is about an hour’s drive to anything.
Once we arrived at the villa (see photos below) we didn’t want to leave; had I not wanted to write an article about what to see here, we risked just hanging out and looking at the view for three days.
These are part of a project called Scultori a Brufa, which placed one work in the landscape each year from 1987 to 2011 (or maybe later – I’m not sure if they abandoned the project or just stopped updating the website).
