Restaurant L'Arte del Cuoco
Our typical spot ...
Pianello is a small town lying in a narrow valley, crossed by the river Chiascio, along the road connecting Perugia to Valfabbrica, Gualdo Tadino and Ancona.
Its name comes from a small village, without city walls, called Villa Pianelli, dating back to 14th century, a time of frequent struggles and wars between Perugia and Assisi: both towns actually wanted to conquer this important territory.
In 1361 its square became one of the major trading centers near Perugia, and the town was assigned a big market fair taking place on 22nd July, the day dedicated to S.Maria Maddalena.
Many important personalities passed through this enchanting village throughout the centuries, its inhabitants are well known for being friendly and simple people, with a big sense of hospitality, which present you with our typical Umbrian, as well as Italian, kitchen.
We can mention this date: 6th June 1464, when the Pope Pio II, travelling towards Ancona, stopped here for the night, and here he received the homage of magistrates from Perugia.
