Foligno is the Umbrian town you do not expect situated in the plain next to a river, Topino, that is part of its life. It has always been an important crossroads. Here the Via Flaminia (Flaminia road) intersects the road to the Marche. An ancient tradition defines the city ' center of the world' because of its geographic position in Italy, world which ended by crossing the Mediterranean Sea. The heart of the city is surrounded by the buildings of power: the Town Hall, the Duomo with its façade to be read like an almanac and Palazzo Trinci, which expresses the affirmation of the lords of Foligno. The palace contains many rooms with remarkable frescoes such as those of Gentile da Fabriano.
The typographic activity which testifies to the local entrepreneurial vivacity dates back to 1472 with the printing of the first edition in Italy of the Divina Commedia by Dante.
Along the main streets, where you stop for shopping there is a succession of palaces of 17th and 18th centuries that make Foligno a unique elegant atmosphere in Umbria.
For the joy of the eyes do not miss the Quintana: beautiful figures give life to baroque costums made with skill and passion.
