Spello is united with Assisi by mount Subasio, the pink stone and the olive trees that characterise the gentle scope. This ancient imported plant finds a favorable habitat in Umbria and becomes its symbol. An olive tree grows on an ancient medieval tower next to a Roman gate. This symbiosis characterises many urban spaces, but the most significant work is in the Museum specially set up for the mosaics from the 2nd-3rd century AD belonging to a Roman villa.
Beyond the pink of the stone, frescos and flowers enrich the palette: the Cappella Bella (Beautiful Chapel) astounds you with a masterpiece by Pinturicchio where the precious colours and passion for details fascinate everyone. In the summer, flowers are in every alleyway: steps, windows and supports create scenographic cascades of colour, but the highlight is for Corpus Christi: carpets of flowers made overnight, petal by petal, but designed in the weeks before thanks to passion and attachment to popular faith.
