Other user descriptions
Assisi (Latin and Italian Asisium: Assisi) is a town and episcopal see of Italy, located in the province of Perugia which is itself in the region of Umbria. It is also the city where St. Francis was born (in 1208 founder of the Franciscan religious order), and Clare (Chiara d'Offreducci, the founder of the Poor Clares). According to the Italian census of 2007, the municipality (comune in Italian) had 26,000 inhabitants in an area of about 187 km ². The city itself has a population of about 5500 people. After the 2006 elections, the ayutamiento is governed by Claudio Ricci (PdL). Around the year 1000. C. a wave of immigrants settled in the upper Tiber valley reaching the Adriatic Sea and around Assisi. These were the Umbrians, living in small fortified settlements on high ground. From the year 450 a. C. these settlements were gradually taken over by the Etruscans. The Romans controlled the central Italy by the Battle of Sentino in the year 295 a. C. They built the flourishing municipium Asisium on a series of terraces of Mount Subasio. Remains of Roman times can still be found in Assisi: the city walls, the forum (now Piazza del Comune), a theater, an amphitheater and the Temple of Minerva (now transformed into the church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva). In 238 Assisi was converted to Christianity by bishop Rufino, who was martyred in Costano. According to tradition, his remains rest in the cathedral of San Rufino in Assisi.
