Villa Urbani

It was opened 1946 as library for young people; it was the first library in Umbria to introduce multimedia documents and internet access. The building, placed near to the city centre, was a neoliberty style villa built in the ‘40s by the Pietro Fringuelli commissioned by Mario Urbani.

The small rooms, the portico, the terraces and the wide garden contribute to create a relaxing mood to study or compare.

The former kitchen has been restored and offers, between burners and pantries, the cooking section and a part of the books donated by Clara Sereni

One of the hall of the villa is used for video projections, readings and events, whereas near the fireplace, a confortable space with armchairs facilitate reading and conversation moments.
