About Bevagna - Umbria Museums
A step back into the past to discover
fragments of art and traditional trades.
In Bevagna sounds and voices intertwined,
recreating a medieval atmosphere
which should be slowly experienced.
Bevagna, cradle of craft traditions
Since the 12th century the town of Bevagna huddles round the central square Filippo Silvestri, sublime in its irregularity, which it is flanked by important buildings that stand as symbols of civil and religious power. Bevagna still has a medieval structure, but there are also numerous evidences of the Roman period.
The Civic Museum
Artistic and Archaeological heritage
The Museum is housed in 18th-century construction built by the Lepri family which was once used as town hall. It includes an archaeological section and a picture gallery, with works coming from the churches in the town and district; thus providing documentation of local artistic production and formal devotion. These collections are an irreplaceable source of the history and culture of Bevagna, indicative of the community way of being and thinking.
