Piegaro is a village where you can feel the ancient air of history. Quiet and relaxing on the top of a green Umbrian hillside you can immagine the place without having seen it before and when you arrive You seem to know it and it has always been there. Passing centuries the village has certainly seen celebrities coming from Perugia or Cittā della Pieve: hurrying by the inhabitants met Raffaello the great artist, they heard, probably distractedly the praises of Jacopone and the prayers of San Francesco.
Piegaro has always been and today still is one of the most important centers of the glass industry not only in Umbria. Today the traditional craftsmanship has changed into industrial production and therefore also the inhabitants of Piegaro have changed attitude towards the modern logic. Nevertheless the educated and watchful visitor will not fail to notice the breath of ancient time and the rural atmosphere of the past. Passing Porta Romana you will find Palazzo Pallavicini, beautiful 18th century building, residence of the Marquis Pallavicini Principi Romani, owners of all the surrounding area. The palace, once center of all the agricultural activities of the estate, today still recalls the ancient rooms, the wine cellar, the store rooms for olive oil and grain and the desiccating room. All wisely transformed into the kitchen and wine bar of the restaurant Mondo Antico.
