Permanent Documentation Centre of the Battle of Trasimeno.
The Centre, inaugurated in early 1996, brings together a permanent exhibition on the subject of Hannibal and the various theories about the Battle of Trasimeno. The visit to the Documentation Centre is a preparation for following the historic/archaeological route of the Battle. Along the route one can identify the areas where the massive battle took place, and to visit the “ustrina”, the huge pits Hannibal had dug to burn the corpses. From 2009 the permanent seat of the centre will be the historical Palazzo del Capra, inherited from the Università degli Studi di Perugia, left by the philosopher of Tuoro sul Trasimeno, Teodorico Moretti-Costanzi.
Campo del Sole (Field of the Sun). This is an architectural collection of sculptures created from “pietra serena”, a typical local stone, situated at Punta Navaccia, at Lido di Tuoro. Numerous artists, such as the great sculptor Pietro Cascella and art critic Enrico Crispolti, contributed to the work in the course of five years from 1985 to 1989. The exhibit is in the form of a large spiral marked by 27 sculpted columns leading to a central table surmounted by a solar symbol.
