From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Rasiglia is a fraction of the mountain town of Foligno (PG), part of the constituency 8 "Menotre Valley".
The country is situated at 648 m asl, about 18 km from Foligno along the Highway 319 leading into high Sellanese Valnerina, having detached from Highway 77 to the Val di Chienti Casenove and along the river valley in which Menotre.
The town preserves the typical appearance of a medieval Umbrian, gathering in a structure like an amphitheater. The first news of the existence of the village date from the early thirteenth century, in so-called "card Sassovivo", ie the archives of the Abbey of Sassovivo. Here is mentioned for the first time de curtis Rasilia, which was to have as a place of worship the church of S. Peter.
Rasiglia was flanked by the ancient Via della Spina, about three kilometers, which is important for trade between the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian and especially between Rome and the March Anconetana. In the fourteenth century to guard the road were also built some fortifications. Of these, remember, Rasiglia, the castle of Trinci (rulers of Foligno), which with its strategic location allowed control of the valley of Menotre.
In the first half of the seventeenth century, the diminishing role of the military, they said Rasiglia for craft activities (mills, factories) on the strength Menotre water from the river.
From 1945 to 1980, Rasiglia had the maximum economic development. In recent decades, however, with the closure of industrial activities, most of the inhabitants moved to Foligno. Following the earthquake of 1997, the population has lived within the first container, then at the "village of the springs" made of manufactured wood and located outside the urban core.
Important water resources and summer tourism. The abundance of water in the inner channel was used to develop the economy and led to the formation, along its course, numerous cotton mills: fulling mills, grain mills, woolen mills and dyers who performed the processing of fabrics. These mills remained active throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth century, after the Second World War, despite the petition of the inhabitants, the mills moved into town.
Currently, some buildings that once sustained the economy of the country, have been renovated for residential use, while others are abandoned. It has recently been restored and put back into operation a small hydroelectric plant that was designed and built by the engineer before the war. Luke Barnocchi of Verchiano.
On December 26 and January 6 is recited in the streets of the country live nativity scene. The representation is historically set in the early '900: participants reproduce the various trades, with which the small fraction of its economy based on its most prosperous period.

angolo tranquillo come i molti che riesci a cogliere in questi antichi borghi.
Mi piace l'effetto dela piccola cascatella e il verde chiuso dagli edifici in pietra,

sembra un posto molto tranquillo, belle le antiche costruzioni che fanno da cornice alla spumeggiante cascatella. Mi piace anche la versione in HDR, non ha colori molto violenti ed č piacevole da vedere.

the small tiny waterfall on the right side of the scene really caps this one off smartly.
I also enjoy the small height progression and how the walls on each side draw the viewer inwards.

Hey, now you're back to normal! I'm flattered (I think) that you've dedicated this to me, and like the composition of the shot and the muted overcast colours. The slowish shutter speed has made the water look very smooth. I certainly prefer it to the HDR version, which seems over exposed. Did you shoot the scene 3 times at different exposures? I think you've inspired me to upload an HDR image (but you won't be able to tell I've used the technique, as it's non-radical combination of 3 shots, simply to maximise the contrast levels). By the way, my comments on your last image prompted a reply from Craig Mackintosh (macjake) who fully agrees about truthful, objective critiques. Lets have more of them!

Lovely green weed along, nice taken photo.

Nice detail from that old town. I like the dynamic of the water and the rocky textures. Well seen, have a great day.

Ciao caro Silvio
Incantevole questo paesino. La cascatella e' proprio carino e contrasta bene con i colori verdi e l'architettura medievale. Ottimo lavoro e ti auguro un bel Venerdi.
