Via di Porta Fuga
From here, according to Livy, Spoleto repelled the armies of Hannibal, veterans of the great victory over Lake Trasimeno, pouring on "Mauri huge and Numidian horses" hot oil, hence the name of the street and the adjoining tower of the oil, in fact both of them dating back to medieval times.
It is however likely that these existed near a Roman gate and the current urban road retraces the diverticulum of the Via Flaminia, which have recently been brought to light many remains.
