Foligno

Foligno sits on the main Rome to Ancona railway line and is the junction for Perugia. This location led to the town being subjected to severe Allied aerial bombing in World War II. As a result, the town has a very modern feel to it with no significant trace of its Roman past, although it retains some medieval monuments. The main attractions in Foligno include Palazzo Comunale, Palazzo Orfini, Duomo of San Feliciano (Cathedral), Church of San Giacomo, Palazzo Trinci, Ospedale Vecchio, Church of San Salvatore, Church of San Agostino, Church of the Suffragio and Oratory of Nunziatella. Foligno is also recorded for the famous Raphael's Madonna of Foligno (now in the Vatican), painted by the Urbinate artist for the nobleman Sigismondo di Comitibus, and for the first printed edition of Dante's Divina Commedia (Divine Comedy), printed on 5th April 1472 in the Palazzo Orfini by Johannes Neumeister and Evangelista Mei.
