Trevi – (PG)

“...di Trevi la città
che con iscena d'aerei tetti la ventosa cima
tien sì che a cerchio con l'estrema schiena
degli estremi edifizi il pié s'adima;
pur siede in vista limpida e serena
e quasi incanto il viator l'estima,
brillan templi e palagi al chiaro giorno
e sfavillan finestre intorno intorno.”
Giacomo Leopardi

One of the many delightful towns of Umbria, perched on a hill overlooking the Spoleto valley
The origin of Trevi is traced back to the historians in the middle of the 4th century BC. C .; the ancient Umbrian city, in all probability, stood on the hill where it is now. The recent discovery of an epigraph confirms the frequentation of the site by the Umbrians, but in its territory settled prehistoric civilizations, as evidenced by finds from the Palaeolithic.
