You can still see traces of roman ruins; a supporting cyclopean wall along the street which once led to the temple of Minerva and a column which was once part of an arcway in a patrician home, perhaps that of the elegiac latin poet Sesto Properzio who was born in Assisi in 47 b.c. and lived in the adjacent home. Very typical and picturesque is the view of the basement area where wonderful findings were discovered during the renovation. The floor with its lithic-based cement carpet, decorated with original insertions (I century B.C.) stands out among them. The "Piazza del Vescovado" is the place where San Francesco got undressed and told his father he would give his life to God.
