Spoleto is an ancient city in the Italian province of Perugia in east central Umbria on a foothill of the Apennines. It is 20km S. of Trevi, 29km N. of Terni, 63km SE of Perugia; 212km SE of Florence; and 126km N of Rome.HistorySpoleto was situated on the eastern branch of the Via Flaminia, which forked into two roads at Narni and rejoined at Forum Flaminii, near Foligno. An ancient road also ran hence to Nursia. The Ponte Sanguinario of the 1st century BCE still exists. The Forum lies under today's marketplace.Located at the head of a large, broad valley, surrounded by mountains, Spoleto has long occupied a strategic geographical position. It appears to have been an important town to the original Umbri tribes, who built walls around their settlement in the 5th century BCE, some of which are visible today.The first historical mention of Spoletium is the notice of the foundation of a colony there in 241 BCE; and it was still, according to Cicero colonia latina in primis firma et illustris: a Latin colony in 95 BCE. After the Battle of Lake Trasimene (217 BCE) Spoletium was attacked by Hannibal, who was repulsed by the inhabitants During the Second Punic War the city was a useful ally to Rome. It suffered greatly during the civil wars of Gaius Marius and Sulla. The latter, after his victory over Marius, confiscated the territory of Spoletium (82 BCE). From this time forth it was a municipium.
