FISHING

There are 35 fishermen members in the fishing association of three villages : San Feliciano, Torricella and Sant’Arcangelo. The Trasimeno fishermen use non-intensive fishing methods for their catch, employing nets and funnel-shaped nets to trap fish. Fish go into the nets, which are checked every 1-2 days, and stay live until they are pulled by the fishermen. Smaller fish will be thrown back into the water. Fishing is limited according to the regulations imposed by the authority of Perugia

They have also promoted fishing tourism.

TOURISM

Bird watching is an interesting activity for tourist and students. A considerable variety of migrating birds live on Lake Trasimeno, including herons, stalks, garzettes, wild swans, cormorants, bitterns, widgeons, milliards, wild goose and stilt-plovers.

AGRICULTURE

The typical products of this area are : olive oil, a special beam named “fagiolina”, pumpkins and wine.

HANDICRAFT

Women, who repaired the fishing nets, learnt by Marchesa Elena Guglielmini how to embroider laces to make table centrepieces, linen tablecloths and inserts. It is called "pizzo irlandese" or Irish lace. Even the construction of wicker baskets is a traditional craft of the lake. The barrel of the lake is a natural material used to build roofs and fences.
