"Perugia" () is the capital city of the region of Umbria in ctral aly, near the Tiber River, and the capital of the province of Perugia. The city symbol is the griffin, which can be se in the form of plaques and statues on buildings around the city.

Perugia is a notable artistic cter of aly. The famous painter Pietro Vannucci, nicknamed Perugino, was a native of Città lla Pieve near Perugia. He corated the local "Sala l Cambio" with a beautiful series of frescoes; eight of his pictures can also be admired in the National Gallery of "Perugia", Raffaele Rossi, Pietro Scarpellini, 1993 (Vol. 1, pg. 337, 344) Perugino was the teacher of Raphael," appears most probable that he did not ter Perugino"s studio till the d of 1499, as during the four or five years before that Perugino was mostly abst from his native city. The so-called Sketch Book of Raphael in the acamy of Vice contains studies appartly from the cartoons of some of Perugino"s Sistine frescoes, possibly done as practice in drawing." (Encyclopedia Britannica Elevth Edition). See also "Perugia". "The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia", Sixth Edition. Columbia University Press., 2003 the great Raissance artist who produced five paintings in Perugia (today no longer in the city)The precise role of Raphael in Perugino"s works, executed during his apprticeship, is disputed by scholars. The inpdt works picted in Perugia are: the "Ansii Madonna "(tak by the Frch unr the terms of the Treaty of Toltino in 1798), the Pala Baglioni (this masterpiece was expropriated by Scipione Borghese in 1608, cf. ), the Colonna Altarpiece (formerly located in the convt of St Anthony of Padua cf.), the "Connestabile Madonna "(this picture was lost to Perugia in 1871, wh Count Connestabile sold it to the emperor of Russia for £13,200, cf. "Encyclopedia Britannica"), the Oddi Altarpiece (requisitioned by the Frch in 1798) and one fresco. Another famous painter, Pinturicchio, lived in Perugia. Galeazzo Alessi is the most famous architect from Perugia.

Perugia was an Umbrian settlemtPerugia (2007). In "Encyclopædia Britannica". Retrieved May 21, 2007, from but first appears in writt history as "Perusia", one of the twelve conferate cities of Etruria; it was first mtioned in Q. Fabius Pictor"s account, utilized by Livy, of the expedition carried out against the Etruscan league by Fabius Maximus Rullianus"How much of his glory is due to his kinsman, Fabius Pictor, the first historian of Rome, or to the family legds, which found in Etruria the most fitting sce for the exploits of the great Fabian house, we cannot tell" (Walter W. How and Hry Devish Leigh, "A History of Rome to the Death of Caesar" London:Longmans, Gre 1898:112). in 310 or 309 BC. At that time a thirty-year "indutiae" (truce) was agreed upon;Livy ix.37.12). however, in 295 Perusia took part in the Third Samnite War and was reduced, with Volsinii and Arretium (Arezzo), to seek for peace in the following year.Livy ix.30.1-2, 31.1-3; "indutiae" with Volsinii, Perusia and Arretium, ix.37.4-5.

In 216 and 205 BC it assisted Rome in the Second Punic War but afterwards it is not mtioned until 41-40 BC, wh Lucius Antonius took refuge there, and was reduced by Octavian after a long siege, and its sators st to their ath. A number of lead bullets used by slingers have be found in and around the "Corpus Inscr. Lat." xi. 1212 The city was burnt, we are told, with the exception of the temples of Vulcan and Juno— the massive Etruscan terrace-walls,. naturally, can hardly have suffered at all— and the town, with the territory for a mile round, was allowed to be occupied by whomever chose. must have be rebuilt almost at once, for several bases for statues exist, inscribed "Augusto sacr(um) Perusia restituta"; but it did not become a "colonia", until 251-253 AD, wh it was resettled as "Colonia Vibia Augusta Perusia", unr the emperor C. Vibius Trebonianus Gallus.Latin inscriptions at two of the preserved Etruscan gates.

is hardly mtioned except by the geographers until it was the only city in Umbria to resist Totila, who captured it and laid the city waste in 547, after a long siege, appartly after the city"s Byzantine garrison evacuated. Negotiations with the besieging forces fell to the city"s bishop, Herculanus, as represtative of the townspeople.Patrick Amory, "People and Idtity in Ostrogothic aly, 489-554" pp185-86, referring to Perugia in passing, notes the increasingly localized role assumed since the mid-fifth ctury by the bishops. Totila is said to have orred the bishop to be flayed and behead. St. Herculanus (Sant"Ercolano) later became the city"s patron saint.Procopius, "Bellum Gothicum", 3 (7).2.35.2, characteristically does not mtion the incidt, reported in Gregory the Great, , who imagines a sev-year siege (i.e. since 540, before the accession of Baduila) and dramatically reports Herculanus" grotesque murr.

In the Lombard period Perugia is spok of as one of the principal cities of Tuscia.Procopius of Caesarea, "Gothic Wars" I,16 and III,35. In the ninth ctury, with the const of Charlemagne and Louis the Pious, it passed unr the popes; but by the elevth ctury its commune was asserting itself, and for many cturies the city continued to maintain an inpdt life, warring against many of the neighbouring lands and cities— Foligno, Assisi, Spoleto, Todi, Sia, Arezzo, etc. In 1186 Hry VI, "rex romanorum" and future emperor, granted diplomatic recognition to the consular governmt of the city; afterward Pope Innoct III, whose major aim was to give state dignity to the dominions having be constituting the patrimony of St. Peter, acknowledged the validity of the imperial statemt and recognized the established civic practices having the force of "Perugia", Raffaele Rossi, Attilio Bartoli Angeli, Roberta Sottani 1993 (Vol. 1, pp. 120-140)
Medieval aqueduct.

On various occasions the popes found asylum from the tumults of Rome within its walls, and it was the meeting-place of five conclaves, including those which elected Honorius III (1216), Clemt IV (1285), Celestine V (1294), and Clemt V (1305); the papal presce was characterized by a pacificatory rule betwe the internal rivalries. But Perugia had no mind simply to subserve the papal interests and never accepted papal sovereignty: the city used to exercise a jurisdiction over the members of the clergy, moreover in 1282 Perugia was excommunicated due to a new military offsive against the Ghibellines regardless of a papal prohibition. In the other hand si by si with the thirteth-ctury bronze griffin of Perugia above the door of the Palazzo i Priori stands, as a Guelphic emblem, the lion, and Perugia remained loyal for the most part to the Guelph party in the struggles of Guelphs and Ghibellines. However this dominant tdcy was rather an anti-Germanic and alian political strategy. The Angevin presce in aly appeared offer a counterpoise to papal powers: in 1319 Perugia clared the Angevin Saint Louis of Toulouse "Protector of the city"s sovereignty and of the Palazzo of its Priors"Avvocato lla Signoria cittadina e l Palazzo i suoi Priori" and set his figure among the other patron saints above the rich doorway of the Palazzo i Priori. At the half of the 14th ctury Bartholus of Sassoferrato, who was a rowned jurist, asserted that Perugia was pdt upon neither imperial nor papal support. In 1347, at the time of Rizi"s unfortunate terprise in reviving the Roman republic, Perugia st t ambassadors to pay him honour; and, wh papal legates sought to coerce it by foreign soldiers, or to exact contributions, they met with vigorous resistance, which broke into op warfare with Pope Urban V in 1369; in 1370 the noble party reached an agreemt signing the treaty of Bologna and Perugia was forced to accept a papal legate; however the vicar-geral of the Papal States, Gérard du Puy, Abbot of Marmoutier and nephew of Gregory IX,Ma a cardinal by his uncle, 20 December 1375 () was expelled by a popular uprising in 1375, and his fortification of Porta Sole was razed to the ground.

Palazzo i Priori: the cter of communal governmt.
Civic peace was constantly disturbed in the fourteth ctury by struggles betwe the party represting the people ("Raspanti") and the nobles ("Beccherini"). After the assassination in 1398 of Biordo Michelotti, who had ma himself lord of Perugia, the city became a pawn in the alian Wars, passing to Gian Galeazzo Visconti (1400), to Pope Boniface IX (1403), and to Ladislas of Naples (1408-14) before it settled into a period of sound governance unr the "Signoria" of the condottiero Braccio da Montone (1416-24), who reached a concordance with the Papacy. Following mutual atrocities of the Oddi and the Baglioni families, power was at last conctrated in the Baglioni, who, though they had no legal position, fied all other authority, though their bloody internal squabbles culminated in a massacre, 14 July 1500. Gian Paolo Baglioni was lured to Rome in 1520 and behead by Leo X; and in 1540 Rodolfo, who had slain a papal legate, was feated by Pier Luigi Farnese, and the city, captured and plunred by his soldiery, was prived of its privileges. A cital known as the Rocca Paolina, after the name of Pope Paul III, was built, to signs of Antonio da Sangallo the Younger "ad coercdam Perusinorum audaciam"."in orr to bring to heel the audacious Perugini".
In the Rocca Paolina
In 1797, the city was conquered by Frch troops. On 4 February 1798, the "Tiberina Republic" was formed, with Perugia as capital, and the Frch tricolour as flag. In 1799, the Tiberina Republic merged to the Roman Republic.

In 1832, 1838, 1854, and 1997, Perugia was hit by earthquakes. Following the collapse of the Roman republic of 1848-49, wh the Rocca was in part molished,cf. Touring Club aliano, "Guida d"alia: Umbria" (1966) it was seized in May 1849 by the Austrians. In June 1859 the inhabitants rebelled against the temporal authority of the Pope and established a provisional governmt, but the insurrection was quashed bloodily by Pius IX"s and In September 1860 the city was united finally, along with the rest of Umbria, as part of the Kingdom of aly.

Perugia has become famous for chocolate, mostly because of a single firm, Perugina, whose Baci (kisses) are wily exported.Nestlè-Perugina produced in 2005 about 1.5 million Baci a day. Each October, Perugia has an annual chocolate festival called EuroChocolate.
