In the volume Mario Valentini, who was mayor of Perugia from 1990 to 1995, describes the power of the city in the Etruscan era and then in that of the Free Municipality when, in 1200, Perugia was the training ground for democracy which determined its period of maximum development. “At that time – recalls the author -, thanks to the alliance between the bourgeoisie and the people, wonderful works were created that spoke and still speak to the world. the Lordships and, finally, the time of the definitive submission of Perugia to the will and regime of the Pope-King which lasted for over three centuries, from the Salt War until 1860. The reader will know the long painful and difficult period of redemption that took place it developed, in significant stages, between the end of the 18th century and the mid-19th century “.

The proceeds, as mentioned, will go to the ‘Night nurseries’, a solidarity clinic born in Perugia in 2018 with the commitment to donate dental, ophthalmological, audiological and dermatological treatments free of charge to the less well-off. The birth of the Solidarity Clinic of Perugia is due to the will of Fabio Bastianini to replicate also in the Umbrian capital what was already done in 1886 by a group of people from Turin with “Umberto I” Nightschools. A great commitment that today is guaranteed in Perugia by the voluntary work of about 40 doctors and about 30 volunteers for different tasks.
