Gubbio

Gubbio Gubbio is a town and comune in the far northeastern part of the Italian province of Perugia (Umbria).
It is located on the lowest slope of Mt. Ingino, a small mountain of the Apennines.
The city's origins are very ancient. The hills above the town were already occupied in the Bronze Age.
As Ikuvium, it was an important town of the ancient Umbrian people in pre-Roman times, made famous for the discovery there of the Eugubine (or Iguvine) Tables, a set of bronze tablets that together constitute the largest surviving text in ancient Umbrian.
After the Roman conquest in the 2nd century BC, it kept its name as Iguvium, the city remained important, as attested by its Roman theatre, the second-largest surviving in the world.
