Pietrafitta is the lovely Umbrian village where is located the Country Resort "Il Piccolo Noce".

Pietrafitta is located on 270 meters above sea level in the middle of rolling hills near a middle age monastery. The origin of the name recalls the geological past and the many stone mines that, once upon a time, were present in this area. Giving a very rapid historical summary, Pietrafitta became important around the end of the 19th century when the Società Terni started to exploit the deposits of brown coal with the technique called "opencast mining". After the Second World War this activity became regular and after approximately 20 years the deposits ran out.

In order to honour this important origin of the area, a museum has been created, Museo Paleontologico (website in Italian) which is located at the entrance of the village. Currently, mammals represent the largest quantity of the entire collection.
