Via Martino Celi, 1, 63826Moresco, Province of Fermo, The Marches, Italy. In Italy, in all the main squares the clock tower rises high. Sometimes even more than one, in Moresco in the province of Fermano it is also on one of the entrances. Initially medieval constructions, later changed or better improved in the Renaissance, have thus adapted these towers to the existing buildings, visible from very far and sometimes higher than the cathedral of the country.



Torre Merlata in Porto San Giorgio, the main tower of the medieval castle.

Torre Merlata Porto san Giorgio, 63822 Porto San Giorgio, Province of Fermo, Marches, Italy All the medieval castles, even the crenelated tower retains the architectural character of the battlements, or of the toothed top. The aim was to protect the soldiers who were walking on top of the towers from the attacks of archers and slingers. The edges of the battlements contained drains, trapdoors that allowed them to throw stones at the enemies or to pour boiling water. There are two main styles of battlements, Guelphs and Ghibellines, from the two factions that used them. Later they were built at the discretion of the building and tower designers.
