The Village of SCHEGGIA-PASCELUPO
Situated in the province of Perugia. Altitude: 580 m. Area: 63.95 s.km. Inhabitants: 1,521 persons. Inhabitants’ name: Scheggiesians (Italian scheggiesi). Postal Zip 06027. Telephone code number: 075.
It is situated on via Flaminia, the ancient consular road which used to connect Rome and Rimini and which was built by Caio Flaminio, the Roman consul, around 200 b.C.
The Roman name was “statio ad Hensem” and it was to be found on Sentino river nearby the Apennines crossing road where a notorious temple dedicated to Giove Pennino was raised. In spite of being completely destroyed, numerous archaeological evidences such as epigraphs, funeral columns and arches, burial places can be noticed around and are still discovered even today.
The mostly mountainous territory of the village is wholly included within the Natural Regional Park of Monte Cucco (1566 m. high). The suggestive more or less narrow valleys of pure water, the healthy air or other corners where the nature is still intact represent the ideal goals for the tourists who can benefit of a lot of routes and paths leading them to wonderful landscapes really worthy to be admired.

There are absolutely to visit in the neighbourhoood the abbey of Saint Maria of Sitria (Sec.XI), the hermitage of St. Girolamo of Pascelupo and the hermitage of Saint Emiliano in Congiuntoli, founded by Saint Romualdo in sec. XI, and above all the famous abbey of Fonte Avellana at the feet of Monte Catria (sec.X) where even the famous poet Dante Alighieri himself has stayed too.
The inner artistic wooden Crucifix dated 1500 a.C. makes the Sanctuary of Monte Calvario (XVII) extremely interesting, springing from the homonymous hill rising above Scheggia and seems to have remained the main goal of the pilgrimages in the area.

The internet can be used in order to find all the addresses and telephone numbers of all the Fanuccis in a region. Virgilio is the name of the Italian searching motor which makes available the White Pages PAGINE BIANCHE, that is practically a telephone listing via internet.
To find all the addresses it would be enough to fill in a province or a town and the desired name. There should be however taken into account that not all the Fanuccis are listed and that in some cases it happened that the name has been mistakenly written as Fannucci (i.e., doubled 'n').
