San Fortunato Bell Tower The 15th century Campanile di San Fortunato, the Bell Tower of the Church of San Fortunato, stands on the left side of the religious building. Decorated with lesenes and arch friezes, the Bell Tower is surmounted by a pyramidal cusp. From its summit it is possible to enjoy a unique panorama over the town of Todi and the Umbrian Valley. The Bell Tower is part of the town Museum itinerary called “Parco Culturale della Città”—The Town Cultural Park—a Service offered by Todi to whoever desires to visit its most significant monuments. It foresees different p
The Roman Cisterns The ancient Cisterne Romane are located under Piazza del Popolo—corresponding to the same public life area as the ancient Roman Forum—that all current public and religious buildings in Todi overlook today. The complex of Cisterns represents the main monument of hydraulic engineering of the town. Designed in Roman times, the visitor has the opportunity of exploring it by following a suggestive pathway in the underground of Todi, to discover the rich hypogenic cultural heritage. The Roman cisterns are part of the “Parco Culturale della Città”—The Town Cu
Lapidarium – The Lucrezie Complex The Museo Lapidario in the town of Todi is housed in the Complesso delle Lucrezie, inside the former Church of San Giovanni Battista and the two edifices behind it. They are part of the Polo Museale Network of which the Lapidarium is the first section. The Lucrezie Complex, located in the Nidola neighborhood, originated in the first half of the 15th century, when a noblewoman from Ancona’s Marches—old imperial administrative subdivision including the towns of Ancona, Camerino and Fermo—madonna Lucrezia della Genga endowed her sisters—in 1425—wi
Archaeological Museum and Civic Art Gallery The Museo Archeologico e Pinacoteca Comunale has its premises in Todi overlooking the eastern side of Piazza del Popolo, the political and religious heart of the town and one of the most beautiful squares in Italy. It is housed on the last floor of the two palaces, Palazzo del Podestà and Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, which were once united—during the 17th century—by an overpass. Palazzo del Podestà, also called Communal Palace, had its construction started in 1213, based on a model taken from the typical design of Northern Italian Com
Rural Civilization Museum The Museo della Civiltà Contadina is located in Bodoglie Alte, a few kilometers from the historical center of Todi. Open to visitors since 1987, the Museum of Bodoglie was instituted thanks to the initiative of Tersilio Foglietti, a former sharecropper and then entrepreneur in the furniture sector, who invested his experience as a farmer in a passionate three-year search for tools, utensils and machinery suited to represent the most typical rural civilization of the Umbria region. The Museum occupies the space of a construction that was once a bar
The Palace of the Captain Todi’s Palazzo del Capitano, also called Palazzo Nuovo, stands on the eastern side of Piazza del Popolo, next to Palazzo del Popolo, which stands a little further back. A large staircase joins them; today the palaces are the seats of the Municipal Council and Municipal Museums. Palazzo del Capitano was built in 1293 and was originally separated from the contiguous Palazzo del Popolo by a road that was later closed and covered. In 1518, the vaults on the ground floor were walled up and re-opened only relatively recently. Instead, the entrance door on th
The Cathedral Collections Managed by the Fabbriceria—the institute responsible for the administration and conservation of the Cathedral’s patrimony—the Raccolte della Cattedrale di Todi are hosted in the crypt of the edifice. These are marble slabs from spoliation, remnants of the Roman period and Early Middle Age. Among them there are some funerary stones, tombstone fragments, and the coat of arms of nobles and bishops. The Room of the Treasure, where the old sacristy was, includes liturgical vestments and sacred items associated with the history of the Cathedral. The display path offer
Civic Theater The Teatro Comunale of Todi is right in the historical center, behind Piazza Grande, as a reminder of the important role it played during the 19th century. In fact, on 3 September 1868, the Municipal Assembly commissioned the building of the new theater to Carlo Gatteschi, an architect from the town of Arezzo, who had already built a remarkable theater, the Teatro Signorelli of Cortona. The work of construction was terminated in 1872, but it was inaugurated four years later with the representation of the opera Un ballo in maschera—A Masked Ball—of Giuseppe Verdi.
