The bell tower of the CHURCH OF SANTA LUCIA, Piazza Santa Lucia, 63066 Grottammare AP, Italy. The church is the most imposing architectural element of the upper town, located in a clearly visible position that characterizes the façade of the old incumbent. The east-facing façade opens onto a narrow square that insists on three arches, which serve as support, below which there are wash houses. It presents a sober and essential style, inspired by the rigorous principles of Tridentine architecture. It is composed of a massive square body from which emerges the octagonal drum, which hides the dome, and the brick bell tower, with two bells, with three overlapping arches and curved crowning.

Via Camilla Peretti, 63066 Grottammare, AP, Italy. Lose yourself in the alleys paved with worn bricks, with views overlooking the Adriatic Sea, beautiful small streets and the scenery that you will observe from a Camilla Peretti street. Camilla Peretti (1519–1605), sister of Pope Sixtus V (r. 1585– 90), was one of an influential group of Roman noblewomen who supported the Counter-Reformation through their patronage of architecture. Peretti’s projects included collaboration with her brother to develop the sprawling Villa Montalto complex on the Esquiline Hill and renovation of the ancient church of S. Susanna al Quirinale, where she commissioned a chapel dedicated to St. Lawrence and built a convent for a group of radically reformed Cistercian nuns. Although Sixtus V is usually characterized …

The old square tower, 63066 Grottammare, Province of Ascoli Piceno, Italy. Square-plan tower set on a scarp base, devoid of connection structures with the city walls and probably built between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, as suggested by the type of wall facing. Inside there are two tanks communicating with spring water.

Church of Sant 'Agostino, Grottammare Borgo, Via S. Agostino, 32, 63066 Grottammare, Province of Ascoli Piceno, Italy The bell tower remembers the rest that Martin Luther made there. An interesting artistic discovery was recently made in this church. To the right of those entering the church, there is a heavy eighteenth-century scagliola cornice, which encloses an altarpiece depicting the Virgin and two saints. On the wall behind it appears a fresco that dates back to the sixteenth century.

Surely photographed from above would make more. This picture I did at sunset and the tower takes this color so lit by the sun.

Gate of the Castle in Grottammare.

I Travel in Italy introduce; Gate of the Castle in Grottammare Copyright All rights reserved © By itravelinitaly.com travelers from Italy Photo OnGoogleMaps by Baldassarri Giuseppe. 
Gate of the Castle in Grottammare, Via del Castello, 63066 Grottammare, AP, Italy. The square tower, on the other hand, is rather interesting because it looks like the classic fourteenth-century tower open at the back and reveals a cross-section of the floors where it was fought and those without openings where stocks were stored; surprising to observe how the small part of the wall remained anchored to the tower defies gravity. The walls continue beyond the road going down towards the so-called gate of the Castle. The best-preserved structures are those of the western curtain where there is a pentagonal tower, called strut, from which a section of the thick wall of the fortress originates. The tower is walled on all sides and cannot be visited inside. In the following wall section you can see the headquar…

The ancient walls of the castle of Porto San Giorgio, 63822 Porto San Giorgio, Province of Fermo. The very panoramic and poetic place located just above the coastal town of Porto San Giorgio, where the view is lost towards the sea or the mountain. It is said that here, in medieval times, Venetian or Dalmatian fishermen settled in flight from the barbarians, who were looking for a place overlooking the sea, safe and easy to defend. I start from the historic center of Porto San Giorgio. More precisely, from the characteristic Corso Castel San Giorgio, which can be accessed from the Largo del Teatro Comunale. The climb begins with Via Girolamo Bonaparte, paved and with small steps, and then continues along Via Cerretani up to an arch with which through the walls of Castel San Giorgio. The ro…

Corso Garibaldi, 137, 63822 Porto San Giorgio, FM, Marches, Italy. The visits the oldest part of the city, towards the south, along Corso Castel San Giorgio, at the end of the street, crosses a large Gothic arch which, together with the other on the left, belonged to the ancient structure of the port. A pointed arch, proud and solitary guardian of the ancient port. Walking through the narrow alleys of the old town one breathes a soft sea air, with the memory among now vanished noises of ancient crafts the indelible traces of history are clearly distinguished.

Via Girolamo Bonaparte, 63822 Porto San Giorgio FM, Italy. Armed with a rudimentary sling, we left as a group of 4 or 5 kids, they started hunting for the largest pine cones set in these gigantic pines. Most of the time the pinecone fell on our heads, but it was worth it because we enjoyed the pine nuts there. From the hills between Fermo and Porto San Giorgio that slope down to the sea, it stands in the landscape The stone pine. The stone pine, botanical name Pinus pinea, also known as the Italian stone pine, umbrella pine, and parasol pine, is a tree from the pine family. The tree is native to the Mediterranean region.

Lungomare dei cantautori del XX secolo, 63827, Pedaso, Province of Fermo, Italy The promenade of the 20th-century singer-songwriters in Pedaso, especially the walls of the railways that separate the town from the beach, are embellished with well-colored murals that blend perfectly with the landscape below. Murals Pictorial representations of scenes mostly of a social-popular inspiration, executed, even with several hands, on walls, building facades, large panels of various materials, usually placed in open places. In murals, the spontaneous or desired simplicity of the stroke, together with the vividness of the colors, creates an effect of great visual immediacy. From what I deduce, at the time of the construction of the railway along the Adriati…

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 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.
