Photographer's Note

Calvi of Umbria
It rises to 401 m s.l.m. on a spur of limestone rock of Mount San Pancrazio, from where dominates a landscape of hills cultivated with vines and olive trees that stretches to the Tiber valley.
The name could be derived from the ancient Roman genius Calvia or from "Carbium", meaning "rocks way". The first documents that speak of "Carbons", however, are reported in the "Farfense Regus".
It is a very ancient settlement whose traces date back to the Middle Bronze Age. At the top of Mount San Pancrazio are the remains of a center of worship of the VI century of the Umbrian-Sabellic area.
