Sant’Eufemia Basilica The Church of Sant’Eufemia is one of the most interesting Romanesque edifices in Umbria. It stands within the enclosure of the Archbishop Palace, in Via Saffi, one of the central roads of Spoleto. The earliest news about this edifice remounts to the 10th century, when a Benedictine nunnery was annexed to it. In 980, Gunderada, the founding sister of the monastery, translated there the body of the Bishop John from Spoleto, who was martyrized under the Goths. The Church was rebuilt in the first half of the 12th century, as per the Romanesque style typical of Spoleto, remini
The Roman Domus It is possible to visit the remains of a Casa Romana, the Roman house, found underneath the Municipal building of Spoleto. This visit makes it possible to know more about the organization of a wealthy house, widespread in Roman times, and to appreciate the rich floor and wall decorations contained in it. The Domus—the genteel residence of Roman times—was located on a higher terracing than that of the Roman Forum, very visible from a lower position. The rooms that were found are all elegantly decorated with mosaic floors, while the painted walls are less preserved. This house,
The Naturalistic Park of Monteluco Born from the initiative of the local section of the WWF, the Centro Visita di Monteluco Display promotes the knowledge of the so-called Bosco Sacro—Sacred Grove—of Spoleto’s mountain. The historical and religious evidence of anthropization as well as the geological, botanical and zoological aspects are illustrated.
Laboratory of the Science of the Earth - Toni Collection The Laboratorio di Scienze della Terra and the Collezione Toni have been hosted in the restored Complex of San Matteo—since1999—seat of the Archives of the State, which is located close to the wall of the town of Spoleto. In particular the Laboratory of the Science of the Earth enhances the value of the collection of Francesco Toni, the naturalist from Spoleto, who collected more than six thousand finds, manuals, geological maps and documents for didactic purposes between 1867 and 1892. Organized in different thematic sections, the coll
State Archaeological Museum of Spoleto The Museo Archeologico Statale di Spoleto is located in the former Monastery of Sant’Agata, in the historical city centre of Spoleto, in the southern block of houses formed by the crossing of the modern road of Via Monterone and Via Sant’Agata, where the ancient Roman Theater used to be. The religious edifice, once a Monastery dedicated to St Agatha, was built at the end of the 14th century over the remnants of a Roman Theatre—dated 1st century B.C.—dramatically changing the scenic setting. Inaugurated in 1985, the museum stretches over several floors, a
The Ancient Costume and Textile Museum The Museo del Tessile e del Costume Antico is in the historical city center of Spoleto, housed in Palazzo Rosari Spada. This palace, built in the 17th and 18th century, was the property of the ancient family from Spoleto that counted Virgilio Rosari—ordained cardinal in 1557 and fierce enemy of St Philip Neri—among its illustrious members. In 1664, Rosari Palace became property of the Marquises Spada of Rome, and in the early years of the 19th century becomes property of the Marignoli family. The rich caisson ceilings, framed-in wall plaster friezes, de
Morgnano Mine Museum The Museo delle Miniere di Morgnano is housed on the ancient shaft of the extraction activities of mining in the Spoleto area. It is an emblematic site both for its centrality in the extractive system and for being a memorial place for the tragic events that occurred there in 1955, which left an indelible mark in the collective memory of the town of Spoleto. The Museum offers entrance and a visit to the SpoletoMiniere Display, showing collected materials, finds, and preserved documents and videos containing personal experiences recounted directly by the former miners.
The Diocesan Museum and Sant’Eufemia Basilica The Museo Diocesano is located in the historical center of Spoleto, near the Duomo of Santa Maria Assunta, in the same area as the Palazzo Arcivescovile. In ancient times the area, today occupied by the Archbishop’s palace, was the residence of the Longobard Dukes. A visit to the Diocesan Museum is suggested in order to admire the works coming from the many Spoleto-Norcia Diocese districts, which are reunited here to safeguard their artistic heritage, which is seriously endangered by inappropriate conservation measures, illegal alienations and the
