Penna San Giovanni


It is a very interesting centre for its waters containing sodium iodine, sodium chlorine, bromine and sulphide, as well as for its climatic characteristics. Blessed Giovanni da Penna, a follower of San Fratesco, was born here. He was mentioned in the “Fioretti” by storiographer Giovanni Colucci (18th century). Painter Mario Nuzi, known as Mario dei Fiori, was also born here (17th century).
