Perugia has a beautiful and captivating old town with narrow streets on the Tiber. Jazz fans will remember Perugia with its wonderful backdrop for the international Umbria Jazz Festival. The main stage, the Santa Giuliana Arena, is located in the heart of the city, not far from the Acropolis and former Santa Giuliana monastery. It dates back to the 13th century and is one of the most beautiful monasteries in Umbria.
In addition to its significance for jazz, the Santa Giuliana Arena is above all a stage for sport: Young talent and recreational athletes train here, and recently competitions have even taken place at an international level. The stadium was built in 1937 in accordance with plans by architect Giuseppe Lilli, primarily to finally give the urban football team its own stadium. The natural turf pitch is surrounded by a 6-lane athletics track and was renovated in 2018 with, among other things, our professional sports surfaces Spurtan WS and Spurtan WS RT in classic red. By the 1st January 2021, we’ll integrate both surfaces into Rekortan’s brand world.
