Assisi is a city of Roman origin (as of Asisium), it is shown by numerous monuments such as the facade of the Temple of Minerva, the Amphitheatre, the Walls, the Forum. With the fall of the Roman Empire, the city became a settlement before the Goths (1545) and then came under the rule of the Lombards.
By the Middle Ages it became independent and was huge development, especially through the monastic movement (especially the Benedictines).
The most illustrious of its citizens St. Francis was born in 1182. Francis was proclaimed a saint in 1228, only two years after his death, by Pope Gregory IX.
Later the town was under the hand of the lordships like that of Gian Galeazzo Visconti, the Montefeltro family, Braccio Fortebraccio and Francesco Sforza, until the middle ‘of the sixteenth century, when Umbria was conquered by Pope Paul III restoring papal control over the town.
Later, in the nineteenth century, the city became part of the nascent Italian.
