The Province of Terni (Italian: Provincia di Terni) is a province in the Umbria region of Central Italy. Its capital is the city of Terni.

History[change | change source]

The province of Terni was created in 1927 when the old Province of the Umbria, created in 1860, was divided in two provinces, the Perugia and Terni provinces.

Geography[change | change source]

The province of Terni has an area of 2,127.18 km2 (821 sq mi),[2] one-third of both the area and population of the Umbria region.

The province is bordered to the north with the province of Perugia, to the east, south and west with the Lazio (the Rieti and Viterbo provinces) and to north-west with the Tuscany (province of Siena).

The province is in the southwest of the Umbria region, in the last part of the Nera river valley near the confluence with the Velino river, and the eastern part of the valley of the Tiber river.

The highest mountain in the province is Monte Aspra (42°38′3″N 12°53′44″E / 42.63417°N 12.89556°E / 42.63417; 12.89556 (Monte Aspra)), in the eastern part of the province, with an altitude of 1,652 m (5,420 ft).[4]

There are two fluvial parks, to protect two rivers and their areas around them, in the province of Terni: Parco fluviale del Tevere ("Fluvial park of the Tiber") and Parco fluviale del Nera ("Fluvial park of the Nera").

As of 31 December  2015 (2015 -12-31), there are 229,071 persons living in the province,[3] for a population density of 107.7 inhabitants/km².
