Rasiglia

Overview

Rasiglia is a mountain hamlet in the municipality of Foligno that rises over 600 metres above sea level.

It is a "treasure chest", hidden among the Umbrian woods, where mills, spinners, springs, art and faith are the elements that outline a unique village.

A typical medieval settlement that arose in the 12th century, Rasiglia is like a small oasis in the mountains where, about a thousand years ago, man decided that stone would become a home and water a profession.

In fact, it is precisely the water that is the founding characteristic of this small Umbrian village: the Capovena spring, which flows just above the town, crosses the village in a network of canals that, over the centuries, have animated the numerous manufacturing activities that have arisen in this small hamlet.

The characteristic waterways that cross the town making it unique and fascinating, in fact, have fed various mills and factories that, for centuries, have guaranteed the survival of the entire community.

Today Rasiglia is a kind of open-air museum: a museum made of fifteenth-century millstones and large sieves, immense frames, gears, harnesses but, above all, a museum made of rooms, objects and people ready to welcome you and to immerse you in the history of these places.
