Bevagna, one of Italy's most charming villages

The ancient village of Bevagna

The ancient village of Bevagna

Bevagna, a handsome village in the province of Perugia, is one of Umbria's most characteristic small towns: so much so, it has often been used to film movies and TV series, including Franco Zeffirelli's "Fratello Sole, Sorella Luna".

The village can easily be visited while visiting its famous neighboring towns of Assisi, Foligno and Trevi and it offers a great insight into Romanesque and Medieval architectures. Bevagna is part of the "Borghi più belli d'Italia", an association of small Italian towns of historical and artistic interest.   

Support L'Italo-Americano Foundation through its fundraising efforts that allow us to promote and preserve the Italian culture and heritage in the US. Enter to win fantastic prizes Including a vacation in Florence. (20% will be donated to the “I Love Norcia” association to support the reconstruction of the town, dramatically hit by the recent earthquake).
