Gualdo Tadino, famous for its ceramics industry and art, lays on Sant'Angelo hill
dominated by the castle "Rocca Flea". A town abounding in history, art and culture, is rooted in ancient
Tadinum, its Roman ancestor on the
plain on Via Flaminia. The barbarian invasions forced the survivors to seek shelter in the hills, witch were safer,
and here they founded Gualdo, from the German word "walt" i.e. "wood". During the Middle Age
it became a free
comune, and later
on it was taken over by the papal state.
There is now a Museum dedicated to an important piece of history, covering the various vicissitudes of Italians
who, between 1800 and the first half of 1900, left their homeland to seek their fortune in foreign lands. In Gualdo
Tadino, Umbria, the first
Regional Museum of Emigration has been established.
