Via dell'Arringo - Spoleto
Via dell'Arringo is the result of cutting the late-medieval insula Euphemia, who had a profound effect on the urban fabric Roman and early medieval. The road has a strong symbolic value as it is closed, the short sides, the symbol of the civil power, or the Town Hall, and religious, the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, on which has a wonderful view. The reasons that led to its creation are to be found in the impressive work that, at the end of the twelfth century, led to the building of the new Cathedral, the transformation of buildings and areas adjacent to it and to the transfer of the Bishop's Palace within the insula Euphemia. The street is so named because it led to '' Arringo "(or" Arenga "), or assembly of the people that from ancient times was held in Piazza del Duomo. It is flanked by the imposing front of Palazzo Arroni and the bishop's palace, a wing of which was inappropriately cut to showcase the apse of St. Euphemia.
Here he lived when he was in Spoleto Maestro Menotti, creator founder and organizer of the Festival of Spoleto, as well as world-famous composer.
