Umbria: the real look seems fictional, the setting is real.

Umbria: The Look Seems Fictional, The Setting is Real

Umbria has not been developed as a tourist area, maintaining a scenic historical and religious beauty. Umbria is already the place where a number of contemporary events take place: Umbria Jazz, Festival dei Due Mondi, in Spoleto and Festival di Todi.

Gubbio stretches across the slopes of Mount Ingino. It is an ancient Italian town that became a Roman municipality and then met with Gothic devastation. Its great revival came about during the Middle Ages. Its characteristic medieval structure, with its interlacing streets and squares, its religious and public buildings, and the belief that it was one of Saint Francis' favorite haunts, makes Gubbio a favorite spot.

Umbriafiction TV Juries will be working in Gubbio, making their selections for the winning films.

Perugia is considered one of the most beautiful and interesting cities of Italy. Set in a spot of natural beauty, it is enriched by the presence of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque art.

The opening and closing ceremonies of the International TV Fiction convention will be held here. The closing ceremonies will include a Grand Gala, which will be shown live on worldwide TV.

Terni is characteristically an industrial town, one of the most important towns in central Italy. Archeological remains of the ancient Italian settlement can be found on the edge of the plain on which the city stands. Visitors can also see the ruins of the ancient amphitheatre of Faust, Palazzo Spada (13th Century), the church of Saint Francis and the Basilica of Saint Valentine. Places of natural beauty, located in the countryside, include the Marmore waterfalls and Lake Piediluco.

The presentation of the special Umbriafiction TV awards for young emerging Italian artists taking part in the Festival will take place here.
