TODI:

TodiIn 2700 BC the Umbrian founded the city of Todi. Its original name was "Tuderte", meaning "border". From the 3rd century BC, the Etruscan and Roman peoples succeeded leaving numerous evidences, such as the Roman "Nicchioni" of Piazza del Mercato Vecchio, in origin, probably part of a Basilica. In 88 BC, Marco Crasso undressed the city of his property, which, after the fall of the Roman Empire, was plundered several times. The figure of the holy Bishop Fortunato goes back to this period and he became the protector of the city. In the Middle Ages, Todi was an enemy of neighboring Orvieto. In the 12th century it became a free municipality, inaugurating a very lucky period, in which the city was enriched with valuable monuments, including the Capitano Palace, the Palace of the Prior, Duomo and the Church of San Fortunato. In 1236 AC Jacopone da Todi was born, the most famous citizen of Todi and one of the first Italian dialect poets. In 1500, after a long period of decadence, the city benefited from the artistic and innovative push of the Renaissance era; the Temple of Consolation is an example. This artistic impulse greatly contributed to Bishop Angelo Cesi, who made numerous works of art.

COLLEVALENZA:

CollevalenzaThe origins of the village are uncertain. It is thought that the name “Collevalenza” (also said “Colvalenza”) comes from the temple dedicated to Giunone Valentia, who stood in the place of the present castle. Faithful to the Ghibellines of the Chiaravalle family, it was long controversial by the opposing factions. In 1377 AD, the population was heavily oppressed and the castle was largely destroyed by the Guelph Catalano degli Atti. In 1424 AD, the castle was rebuilt and today it is still possible to admire the fifteenth towers and gothic walls with two openings. The center of the city, still furnished with medieval walls, owes its fame to the Shrine of Amore Misericordioso of Madre Speranza. The religious buildings of the sanctuary are one of the most significant expressions of sacred architecture of the second half of the twentieth century; it is an imposing complex with modern receptive structures embedded in a series of buildings located on the slopes of a hill. The central nucleus consists of the Great Church, consecrated in 1965 BC, by the Spanish architect Julio Lafuente, and by the chapel of Amore Misericordioso wanted by Madre Speranza in 1955 AD. Madre Speranza Alhama, in addition to several prodigious phenomena such as the transmutation of water in oil, has been the protagonist in the life of bilocation phenomena. Stigmatized, she often exuded blood. Memorable is the episode that took place in 1960, when, being the land of Collevalenza without water, relying on God (her "engineer"), she pointed to the stick where it was to proceed with the drilling to find the water that would renew Lourdes' wonders. After the breakup of numerous drills (according to mysticism caused by the Demon), the aquifers were found that Madre Speranza called "the relief of the body to find God." Only in 1998 there were almost 800 cases of healing.
