Rocca Paolina, Perugia - Umbria

The underground city

The Rocca Paolina is a fortress in the city of Perugia.
It was built between 1540 and 1543 by order of Pope Paul III and represented, until 1860, the symbol of the Papal power over the ancient city. The building, designed by Antonio da Sangallo the younger, was built on what were the homes of Baglioni, following their revolt against the Pope, and occupied a large part of the South of Perugia. For its construction were used the materials of the ancient village of Santa Giuliana, demolished in whole with its churches and convents, while the houses, streets, towers and courtyards that fall within the scope of the new building were incorporated and covered with mighty times once the basement.
Partly destroyed in 1848, rebuilt in 1860 by Pope Pius IX, the fortress was torn down permanently in the decades following annexation to the Kingdom of Italy, providing the space for the construction of many buildings and lodging 19th century (piazza Italy, via Masi, giardini Carducci, Independence Avenue). With such vast urban upheaval, the ancient fortress (divided into three parts: the Papal Palace, the "Runner" and "Nipper") remained only the basement of the Papal Palace. These were affected by the work of removing the rubble in 1932 and completed in 1965, opening to the public as "underground city" of great charm and beauty. Since 1983, finally, the fortress is crossed by pedestrian path mechanized (escalators) from the bus station, along the ringroad extra-mural, reaches an Etruscan Acropolis. Today its great and singular spaces are used for many cultural events during the year.
