Agriturismo in Umbria

Handicrafts

Woodworking

The making of everyday objects in the country, and the cultured art of carving, which admirably expressed the Umbrian Renaissance and Baroque in the wooden decorations of churches and buildings, are two ways in which this ancient and vital production has been applied in Umbria. Today, wood handicrafts look to tradition in the restoration and period furniture specializations, while they look to the future in the evolution toward lively industrial forms. These different ways of practicing the ancient carpenter?s trade are found practically everywhere, and in particular in Citt di Castello, Todi, Assisi, and Perugia, while in Orvieto wood is worked with original modernity.
