Art, Culture, Nature
past and present of a territory
Spoleto has a rich and stratified downtown, harmonizing in an extraordinary continuum with the surrounding landscape: a two-thousand-year old union between art and nature.
Along the streets, the alleys and squares, just glimpsing around, you may discover an unusual face of the city: precious basreliefs, graffiti and remains of frescoes; fountains and drinking fountains; romantic small arches joining the alley walls; Roman stones acting as a podium for medieval buildings.
Yet an even more secret Spoleto does exist:
the remains of the Roman House underneath the Town Hall, the Boody Bridge (1st century B.C.), the Roman temple on which the Church of Sant'Ansano was built, Silla's Substructures, the crypts and a part of the city which is very rich with history, that also includes the remains of the Roman amphitheatre (2nd century A.C.), which is only being brough back to light today, through interventions that will link the city's past with its future.
