About Piegaro

Symbol of PiegaroPiegaro is a town in the province of Perugia, located between two mountain ranges that surround the river Nestor. The highest mountain is Montarale (853 m asl), from which you can admire a magnificent view of the Orvieto valley. Piegaro was founded by the Romans around 290 B.C. with the name of Plagarium. The town had a large expansion in the thirteenth century: during that times (it is said) some glassmakers, who came from Venice, stopped in the Umbrian town and started a great activity related to glass. In the core town you can see, even today, the oldest glass factory that houses the Museum of Glass. During the Middle Ages, Piegaro was part of the feuds of the neighboring cities of Orvieto, Perugia and Marsciano until, in the XVI century, it became part of the Papal States.
