Photographer's Note

Bevagna is a town and comune in the central part of the Italian province of Perugia, (Umbria), in the flood plain of the Topino river.
Bevagna is 25 km (15 mi) SE of Perugia, 8 km west of Foligno, 7 km north-north-west of Montefalco, 16 km south of Assisi and 15 km (9 mi) north-west of Trevi.
It has a population of c. 5,000, with the town of Bevagna proper accounting for about half of that.
The city was originally an Etruscan-Oscan settlement. Around 80-90 BC it became a Roman municipium, called Mevania. In the 3rd-4th centuries AD it was probably an episcopal see and, after the Lombard conquest, the seat of a gastald in the Duchy of Spoleto.
After the year 1000 it was a free commune. In 1152 Frederick Barbarossa set it on fire. In 1249 it was again destroyed by the Count of Aquino. In 1371-1439 it was ruled by the Trinci family. Later it was part of the Papal States until the unification of Italy
