Foligno is a town in the plains and is situated in the middle of Valle Umbra, at the outlet and the confluence of river valleys and the river Topino Menotre. Its flat morphology contrasts sharply with the neighboring urban settlements, attributed to the relief, and quirky are the traits that characterize its medieval appearance; founded with the support of key water resources and ancient road networks, Foligno was, right from the source, chosen based on commerce, matrix and the city of pragmatic and rational than spiritual. Its evolution is marked by urban churches of great historical value and artistic, but also and above all the palaces and mansions that often hide unexpected treasures, a time of political and economic centers. L `original urban layout underwent significant changes and additions up to the maximum size of the 1377 and 1415. This is the most magnificent cultural: the court of Trinci, settled in favor with the papal power in 1305, to the luster and importance to the city, transforming it into a fruitful commercial and crafts center. The current city limits, elliptical and the characteristic shape “ovata”, comes to the definition in those years, with the focus centered on the Republic Square, with the Cathedral and the Cathedral that face, almost reminiscent of the ancient feuds between the Guelphs and Ghibellines. The city is now the commercial and industrial center of the richest and most important Umbrian Valley and the main communications center `s entire region. The industries in the area are medium and small: part of the territory, related to agriculture and the driving force of the water, such as paper mills, printers, tanneries, Woodworking, milling industry and oil mills; other more recent plants, as furnaces, chemical and mechanical. The city is flat and easily passable with disabilities with the center has been recently repaved. Starting from Porta Romana you can leave your car in parking lots "Quintana" or "The Stairs", then leads to Corso Cavour, the main street of the city, which is located at the Tourist Information Desk.
