Trevi

Description

Municipality in the province of Perugia, located in a hilly area on the right side of Monte Clitunno, not far from the plain of Spoleto, Trevi is a medieval village, probably the oldest of the area, with a less compact structure to other similar centers in the nearby. It is characterized by a maze of narrow, winding streets, paved with brick and stone, a series of noble buildings, some with decorative elements of the Renaissance, and also some more simple dwellings, located towards the outskirts of the town's center. Each corner proposes suggestive featured such as: staircases, arches and colonnades.
The first settlement was founded by the Umbrians, while in the III century B.C., Trevi was colonized by the Romans. After the fall of Empire and the consequent and inevitable state of abandonment and neglect of the territories which previously belonged to the Romans, it was subject to the raids of the Barbarians.
In the VII century, the town became part of the Lombard Duchy of Spoleto, declaring faith to the Guelphs. At the end of the XIV century, the center was granted in fief to the Trinci by the Papal States. After belonging to several feudal lords, it submitted the direct domain of the Papal States.
