About Spoleto

Symbol of SpoletoSpoleto is a city in the province of Perugia. Located in the southern part of the Valle Umbra, Spoleto is situated on an alluvial plain, created in prehistoric times because of the presence of a large lake, the Lacus Umber, which dried up permanently in the Middle Ages. The name Spoleto derives from the conjunction of the Greek words spao and lithos (detached stone): the St. Elias hill (the hill of the sun), where the city originally developed, would be the residue of a landslide, detached from Monteluco. Originally inhabited by the Umbrians, the city became a Roman colony under the name Spoletium.
