About Spello

Symbol of SpelloSpello is a city in the province of Perugia. Located at the foot of Subasio mountain, it was founded by the Umbrians and became Hispellum in Roman times. The city was declared by Julius Caesar Splendidissima Colonia Julia: the remains of the walls are evidence of the greatness of the city, as well as the archaeological ruins that surround it. In 326 d. C., with the advent of Christianity, Emperor Constantine gave the Splendidissima Colonia Julia its ancient role as a federal center of the Umbrians (as evidenced by the Rescript of Constantine, preserved in the Palazzo Comunale), transforming the city into Urbs Flavia Constans .
