Here is why Umbria is so beloved by Germans
Marriage in Umbria, in the midst of art and history
The region of Umbria, the Green Heart of Italy, has moved and inspired writers across generations.
Johann Wolfgang Goethe, who arrived in Umbria in 1786 from Firenze and visited Perugia, Foligno, Assisi, Spoleto, and Terni, noted in his diary his impressions in each city, such as Perugia, the Temple of Minerva in Assisi, and the Ponte delle Torri in Spoleto…
Lord Byron, in turn, was impressed by the Marmore Falls, that he called “horribly beautiful.” Recently, it was discovered by Luca Tomìo, together with the art critic Vittorio Sgarbi, that this waterfall is the subject of a famous drawing by Leonardo da Vinci.
The medieval city of Narni, and in particular the fascinating Narni Underground, was a source of inspiration for the famous series “The Chronicles of Narnia.”
A wedding in Umbria is perfect for those inspired by the words of the poets.
Weekend Romance in Umbria: Passion for Chocolate
Give her a kiss… made of chocolate. Umbria is a fantastic place for lovers of chocolate. The most famous of the Umbrian chocolates is the kiss, the Bacio Perugina. The development of which is contributed to three people. First, Luisa Spagnoli, daughter of a fishmonger and a housewife, created the chocolate with hazelnut, initially calling it “Cazzotto”, the Punch. It took the contributions of two others before it would be entered into the history books, and then become a legend. The first was Giovanni Buitoni, famous for his pasta, that decided to change the name of the creation to “Bacio Perugina.” The second was the company’s art director, Federico Seneca, that created the signature blue and silver wrapper with the inspirational message on the inside and the packaging with two lovers kissing that is inspired by the painting of Hayez titled “the Kiss.”
The newest creation of Casa Perugina is the bar of chocolate called “Tabló,” which the company is using to promote the reconstruction of the village of Castelluccio in Norcia, a grand symbol of beauty in the heart of Italy. The promotion is an invitation to be immersed in the heart of Italian chocolate and encourage the rebirth of this Umbrian town that is in the the midst of the Mount Sibillini National Park, famous for the extraordinary annual spectacle of millions of blooming flowers.
