THE PROJECT BRIEFLY: The impressive remains of the Roman city of Hurvinum Ortense can still be seen near the village of Collemancio di Cannara on La Pieve hill. The current state of research suggests that the first monumentalization phase of this area dates back to the second half of the III century b.C.; it seems reasonable to suppose that the Tripartite Tuscan temple must date to that century. Hurvinum Ortense became a municipium after the Social War (90 b.C.). First signs of urbanization date back to that period, as evidenced by the remains of an ancient road near the temple. The thermal complex is likely to date from the II century a.D. and it suggests a certain vitality of this municipium during the Imperial Age.Our project is part of the research and enhancement of archaeological heritage program of the Comune of Cannara, which is run in cooperation with the Archaeological Superintendency of Umbria; it is also part of the archaeological research and training program run by the University of Perugia. Our excavation program aims to learn about the town and its evolution, to reconstruct life way of life and to provide useful information about the most important buildings, both private and public ones.
