"La Casa Colonica is an old farmhouse situated at Vernazzano in one of the greenest valleys of Umbria, set in a delightful position between gently rolling hills, woods, olive groves, vineyards and cultivated fields. The farmhouse has an inviting family atmosphere due to the local products available such as marmalades and jams, oil, Tuscan and Umbrian wines, as well as the nearby farm where poultry is bred and food products are made.
"The hamlet of Vernazzano, once an Etruscan dwelling place, was inhabited by poor fishermen and woodcutters, when it took its place in history due to Hannibal, who in June 217 B.C. defeated the Roman army led by the consul Caio Flaminio.
The Battle of Trasimeno, is relived in a theatrical event which recreates the atmosphere and climate present in all war-type situations, of every period, the spectators find themselves participating in the action of the story being narrated.
An adventure tour, by bus and on foot, full of emotion and theatrical sensations, in which the spectator, by interacting with the actors, become stars of the show.
An enjoyable experience which can easily involve spectators of all nationalities, in fact, the actors express themselves in many languages."
