The region of Umbria is bordered by Tuscany, Lazio, and Marche.The history of Perugia goes back to the Etruscan period; Perugia was one of the main Etruscan cities.The city is also known as the universities town, with the University of Perugia founded in 1308 (about 34,000 students), the University for Foreigners (5,000 students), and some smaller colleges such as the Academy of Fine Arts "Pietro Vannucci" (Accademia di Belle Arti "Pietro Vannucci") public athenaeum founded in 1573, the Perugia University Institute of Linguistic Mediation for translators and interpreters, the Music Conservatory of Perugia, founded in 1788, and other institutes.Perugia is also a well-known cultural and artistic centre of Italy.
