Welcome to PERUGIA
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG

Information about PERUGIA Perugia was one of the 12 cities of the Etruscan confederation. The Roman emperor Ottaviano conquered the city and gave it a new name: Augusta Perusia. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the city became independent town with a own council, but often divided into fierce fights against families like the Baglioni. This family was the only which contended the city with the Papal States in 1531. The pope Paolo III, as a symbol of his power, decided to build the Rocca Paolina, a huge rock above the old city. This power finished in 1860, year of the unification of Italy. Perugia offers a great mix of old and new, with its medieval city streets and architecture, a modern airport, and other amenities. Local industry is centered around processing the region's agricultural products. Perugia factories turn out lots of pasta, and, by local accounts, Italy's best chocolates. The University of Perugia as well as the Italian Univeristy for Foreigners (founded by Mussolini) enhance Perugia's already considerable cultural appeal together with the internationally famed Umbrian Jazz Festival. Proud of its historical traditions and the beautiful buildings of the past, Perugia let itself be admired in its thousand picturesque corners where present and past integrate one another and create an unforgettable atmosphere.
