Terni is quite different from the other Umbrian
towns because of its position in the valley, and
because the area was heavily industrialized in the
late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Most
glorious was its weapon-factory. For this reason the
area was heavily bombed at the end of World-War II.
Still, a visit can be surprisingly interesting,
including classical and industrial archaeology,
ancient and modern painting, elegant 16th century
palaces and the urban revolution which occurred
after the Second World War.
Near Terni, the archaeological site of the ancient
roman town of Carsulae is an interesting alternative
to the visit of the modern town.
