It's the Umbrian Venice, enchanted with its streams and channels that feed the ancient mills that operate the weavers' looms. The great abundance of water in the internal channel was exploited to develop the economy and also led to the formation, along its course, of numerous factories: fulling mills, grain mills, woollen mills and dyeing mills that worked on fine fabrics. These factories remained active throughout the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. We'll have a guided visit.
