Città della Domenica is Italy's first amusement park. It was conceived and built in the late 1950s by Mario Spagnoli (1900-1977), an enlightened entrepreneur from Perugia and son of Luisa Spagnoli (the woman who invented Baci Perugina and created the fashion house of the same name), who bought it in the early 1950s.
Originally named 'Monte Pulito' due to the lack of vegetation, the hill was regenerated and initially an olive grove was planted there. Later, a country house with a clay pigeon shooting range was built on the top of the hill, a meeting point for weekend outings.
Wandering around the streets of town centres and discovering delightful shop windows of small exclusive or characteristic boutiques: shopping in Umbrian villages is always an exciting adventure.
Small ateliers, art galleries, ancient craftsmen's shops, historic jewellers, hidden wine shops: every street in the most characteristic town centres is dotted with small shops, each one different from the next.
Whether you buy or not, you can relax strolling among the many shop windows, before coffee or a cappuccino in a quaint café, perhaps with a panoramic terrace.
Those interested in big brands can stroll along Perugia's Corso Vannucci to discover the historic shops that have been offering clothing and accessories by famous designers such as Armani, Miu Miu, Roberto Cavalli, Micheal Kors, Max Mara, Moschino and Ermenegildo Zegna for years. Also not to be missed is the shop and outlet of Luisa Spagnoli, whose company is based near Perugia.
The big names can also be found in the more characteristic town centres, such as Assisi or Foligno, where the shops are small but immersed in a charming atmosphere.
Umbria is also known for excellence in the field of textiles, especially cashmere processing.
Famous is the Brunello Cucinelli outlet, located in Solomeo (a few kilometres from Perugia), where there is also the centre for the production and processing of the highly prized wool, but there are other famous brands in the area, such as Della Ciana, Lamberto Losani, Cruciani, Luxury Cashmere and Fabiana Filippi.
