On December 13, 2021, the celebrations for the fifth centenary of the birth of Felice Peretti will begin. The celebrations will begin on December 13, 2021 and will end on December 13, 2022.

San Giovanni Battista Church Grottammare, Piazza Peretti, 63066 Grottammare AP, Marches, Italy.  The church has a sober and rigorous facade, both for its architectural style and for its construction material.

The church houses the Sistino Museum of Grottammare, one of the sites of the network of the Sistini Museums of the Piceno. The museum contains paintings, furnishings, ecclesiastical furnishings and paper works, especially from the churches of Grottammare. Among the exhibited works, we can remember a Sacred Conversation by Vincenzo Pagani (Monterubbiano 149…
