Additional information

  • Umbertide and the surrounding area was inhabited in pre-Roman and Roman times. The 19th century archaeologist Mariano Guardabassi attributed a small building, located about 1 km from the town centre, to the Etruscan but this is by no means certain. The Roman town of Pitulum was destroyed by Totila in the mid-6th century but the present incarnation, then known as Fratta, was said to have been founded in the 8th or the 10th century depending on which scholar you prefer to believe. The present name was adopted in 1863 in honor of then Crown Prince Umberto.
  • Although there are remains of the medieval walls, a few medieval houses, and part of the impressive Rocca, many of Umbertide's best monuments are of later periods. The main church in town is the collegiate church of Santa Maria della Reggia. It is an octagonal 16th century brick building topped by an elegant cupola, housing a few paintings by Niccolò Circignani. Santa Maria della Pietà, with the attractive funerary chapel of the counts of Sorbello, is late medieval and Renaissance. The seventeenth-century church of Santa Croce houses a museum with a good collection of paintings, including a Deposition by Luca Signorelli. The largest church, San Francesco, is Gothic.
  • Beyond the town limits the principal monuments are the castle of Civitella Ranieri, one of the best-preserved medieval fortresses in Umbria. The abbey of San Salvatore di Montecorona which has a beautiful eleventh-century crypt with early Romanesque capitals and naïve 18th century painted ceilings. The medieval castle of Polgeto, the abbey church of S. Bartolomeo de' Fossi and the walled medieval village of Borgo Santa Giuliana.
