I travel in Italy. I introduce you Grottammare Alta, the medieval village overlooking the sea, gathered on the edge of a hill, with rustic houses and small streets, where the scent of orange groves expands. Along the path that leads there is the seventeenth-century villa of Cardinal Decio Azzolino, where Cristina of Sweden stayed. Following the conquest of the city in 1525 by the Dulcigno pirate, the village was fortified with walls, gates and a Torrione called the battle. Currently, it houses many of the works of the native wind sculptor, one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, Pericle Fazzini. In the Church of Sant 'Agostino of the sixteenth century, there is a Madonna della Misericordia by Vincenzo Pagani (1577). In the nearby Piazzetta Peretti you can enjoy an exceptional view from the balcony porch of the building that houses the historic Teatro dell'Arancio, near which stands the Clock Tower. The noble Church of Saint Lucia (1597) built by Camilla Peretti in memory of her brother Sixtus V Felice Peretti, who became pope, is worth a visit. The Sistino Museum set up in the Church of San Giovanni Battista is dedicated to it. On the hill overlooking the village are the remains of a fortress built in the IX-X centuries.
