With its 22 000 inhabitants, Bastia Umbra - in the province of Perugia - stands less than five kilometers from Assisi. The town has ancient origins, dating back to the Roman era. The small town has assumed national importance in 1978, when the fairgrounds UmbriaFiere opened, boasting some 14 thousand square meters of exhibition and conference spaces.

Bastia Umbra is not exactly a tourist resort, but enjoys many points of historical interest, such as the Rocca Baglionesca with the church of Sant'Angelo, located in Piazza Umberto I. Very famous are some events that take place here, as the Palio di San Michele, in September, when the city districts compete with games and parades, and the Rinchinata, at Easter, a good omen for agricultural crops.
