The fossils, the mine and its treasures

It all began…
with the discovery of some fossils by Luigi Boldrini, known as Gigino, a miner in the lignite quarry of Pietrafitta power plant.
We are in the mid-sixties. Since then, for over thirty years, there was not a day in Gigino’s life that was not dedicated to the search for new finds: small fragments and sensational discoveries, to give life to a powerful collection.

The Boldrini Paleontological Museum now houses one of the collections of fossil vertebrates, dating back to the Pleistocene, among the richest in Italy and Europe.
The spearheads of the collection are the 8 skeletons of Mammuthus Meridionalis, whose bones were left in the position they had at the time of the discovery.

Trip to the ‘little Murano’ of Umbria

The Glass Museum is the most important testimony of an ancient tradition of glass processing, which has characterized Piegaro and its economy since the 13th century. The building that currently houses the exhibition is the last seat, inside the town walls, of the glass factory which was decommissioned in 1968, moving production to a new plant in the town valley, which still exists today.
The Museum preserves the ancient appearance of the glass factory and houses many types of artifacts that came out of the kilns of Piegaro area. The large flow of glass, with its intense emerald green, is undoubtedly the most evocative vision within the museum itinerary, an effective ‘monument’ to the centuries of productive history of the village of Piegaro.Through a guided tour, you can therefore admire the remains of the furnace used for melting, ancient tools for craftsmanship and the precious objects produced over the years by glass masters, skilled hands that have shaped this fascinating material for centuries.

From Benedictines to Della Corgna: Visit to the Abbey and tasting

The Abbey of Settefrati is a former Benedictine abbey of the twelfth century, transformed into a hunting lodge in the 16th century by one of the most prestigious noble families of the Lake Trasimeno area, the Della Corgna, in particular by Cardinal Fulvio Della Corgna who had it frescoed with grotesque motifs, with allegorical scenes, sacred images, animals, angels and fantastic figures who still have stories to tell.

Despite the traces left by time, the Abbey still preserves all the charm of its thousand years of history.
