The ancient forest cottage  

During the Roman age, Scoppieto was a flourishing centre of ceramic production:   the name of village during this period is unknown. The pottery were sold  in Rome and it comes in this city thanks to the Tevere River.  Afterwards, the pottery were shipped in Ostia and sold in all countries of Mediterranean sea. Very luxury smart have been found in Alessandria d’Egitto, Cagliari, artagine. The development of African ceramic production impoverished the Scoppieto’s economy, because the African production was less expensive and less luxury than Scoppieto’s ceramic. A slow decline affect the furnace of Scoppieto until the complete abandobment of this centre. The last archeological finds is dating around he the end of IV sec. A.C. as attested by archaeological excavations recently opened ( in 1995) , Scoppieto was a thriving center of ceramic production : you ignore the name of the site in this period. Ceramics, through the nearby Tiber , was sold in Rome , embarked at Ostia and sold in all the major countries of the Mediterranean. Ceramics of fine workmanship were found in Alexandria , Cagliari, Carthage. The development of African pottery production , lower cost though less valuable , however, caused the collapse of the economy Scoppieto , then , in a slow decline, the oppidum was gradually abandoned , although there are archaeological finds dating back to the end of the fourth dc After centuries of oblivion, in the Middle Ages , the pagus is named as Scopletis , with obscure meaning of the name . The country remained a villa without fortifications throughout the Middle Ages , although the location is perched on a hill , with only one access road and countless dead-end streets , could suggest a castrum built to defend the nearby Basque and Civitella del Lago , from the incursions of Todi or would-be attackers from the Tiber valley. Following is a close one with the castle of Ponticelli ( then numbered only 15 inhabitants ), while Scoppieto counted 145 ( in the thirteenth century). E ‘ in this setting full of history that you will find this house very interesting, in fact it is located right at the entrance of Scoppieto and very close to the Roman kiln which has been talked about before . As soon as you arrive you find yourself in front of a small driveway that leads to a very large garden that surrounds the property , and this is the characteristic of this place, in a few meters from the main street you can find yourself completely isolated from the rest of the World, immersed in nature between oaks. Once in front of the house we are faced with a small porch. The house is split over three levels, A first floor, a ground floor and a basement. In the basement there is a small but very quaint living room with fireplace, where you can have dinner with friends and family in comfort. On the ground floor we find a kitchen, a dining room, three bedrooms and where in one of them there is a bathroom. On the first floor we have a large single room, used as a bedroom, plus a small attic. In our rendering, we also propose a restructuring proposal, always following the style of the typical Umbrian farmhouse harmonized with modern design, adding, since there is a possibility to achieve it, even a swimming pool.
