Lamberto Losani cashmere

Villa Case Sparse n.48/g

06063 Magione (PG)

tel. +39 075 8477125

This brand, now in its third generation, is represented by cashmere knitwear on sale in the best stores around the world. Nowadays, Paola Losani follows the development of the product. The story began in 1939 when Giovanni Losani started a small business producing wool hosiery and knitwear garments. At that time he used angora, which came from local rabbit fur. After World War II, it was his son Lamberto who decided to change the company's direction: a factory was built, with emphasis on the constant investment in better technology. Emphasis was then placed on cashmere knitwear, resulting in a success that has not diminished.

Lake Trasimeno is a pleasant spot for Perugians and visitors to cool off in its clean waters. The lake is very shallow and gets warm and turbid in summer. Water quality is being regularly monitored by the authorities.


You can charter a sailing boat at Passignano sailing club which also offers a sailing school. At most of the beaches around the lake you can rent surf boards, canoes and kayaks.

An hour and a half guided rafting ride, canoe courses and river excursions in kayak on the river Corno. Canyoning, speleology, climbing, survival, orienteering etc. Equipment supplied by organizers.

The Marmore Waterfalls is the ideal location for rafting. At the foot of the waterfalls, along the descent of the rapids, the River Nera flows quickly, bubbling along the rocks for over three kilometres and forming grade four rapids, (from 1 to 6 difficulty for rafting), surrounded by luxuriant vegetation.

A waterfall to live, an exciting experience, a world to be discovered accompanied by an expert guide in complete safety, open to everyone including children. Rafting: descent on the River Nera close to the waterfall on grade 4 rapids. It is also possible to do white water rafting or canyoning with rope descents, slipways and drops of varying difficulty, in contact with uncontaminated nature and discovering an unknown world.

Water, Air and Earth offer the amazing scenario of the Sibillini National Park as well as the naturalistic area of the Coscerno and Aspra Mountains, the perfect environment in which to practice outdoor sports: rafting, free climbing, paragliding (above the Planes of Castelluccio di Norcia), trekking, horse-riding, mountain-byking, rapid-riding, orienteering and survival. Each of these activities can be practiced at all levels of difficulty and expertise, under the control of qualified instructors.
