Lu centru de lu munnu... la terza città dell'Umbria è piena di vita e di sorprese.
The third largest city of Umbria, situated halfway between the most famous Perugia and Assisi , Foligno is an excellent destination to discover! Foligno is located on flat land , which makes it pleasant to visit the city by bike or on foot. In the city centre you'll find the main tourist attractions: in Palazzo Trinci (Piazza della Repubblica), you'll find the Pinacoteca and the main museums of Foligno. Adjacent to the palace is located Palazzo Orfini, former home of Emiliano Orfini , the printer who printed the first edition of the Divine Comedy in Italian. In Largo Carducci we mention the Oratory of Nunziatella dated 1492, where you can admire a work of Perugino depicting the "Baptism of Jesus ".
Foligno annually hosts the Giostra della Quintana (Joust of the Quintana), annual historical event (revived in 1946 after a century break, ed) inspired by the medieval equestrian competition that will bring the city back to a time when women were "Dame" and men "Messeri". The first race was held in June at night and is called La Sfida (The Challange), while the second takes place in the afternoon on a Sunday in September and is called "La Rivincita" ("The Rematch").
