“Porte Aperte al Trasimeno“, or “Open Doors at Trasimeno“, was designed to increase awareness of the Trasimeno area, which comprises 8 municipalities:
Castiglione del Lago, Città della Pieve, Magione, Paciano, Panicale, Passignano sul Trasimeno, Piegaro and Tuoro sul Trasimeno.
The landscape is graced with the blue hues of the lake, with hilltop towns steeped in history, art and flavours that are the very real guardians of culture and tradition. The environment is under constant and close control, monitored by the Regional Environmental Protection Agency, which studies samples of air, water and the soil to ensure that all conform to the strict regulations stipulated by both Italian and European law.
Life at Lake Trasimeno is slow-paced, everyone knows one another and the piazzas are hubs of encounter and social interaction. There is a gentle harmony here that makes this region unique, a harmony that the Etruscans had already identified as a representation of heaven on earth, a place where life was good, where hospitality and human warmth still reigns.
