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 …

On the wall behind it appears a fresco that dates back to the sixteenth century.

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…

Via del Castello, 63066 Grottammare AP, Riviera Delle Palme, Marches, Italy The Castle which has the typical characteristics of the medieval fortress, being an ideal place to defend itself from enemy attacks because to the east it is almost overlooking the sea, while it is surrounded by walls on the other sides. The second area is located lower down, on the slopes of the mountain, and is the place where the population has developed over the centuries.

Via Ischia, 155, 60026, Grottammare, AP, Italy Each point of the earth's surface passes a single parallel, used in geography to establish the position of a given location through the so-called latitude. Being in the precise point where a parallel passes, therefore, means being "tied" by an invisible thread to all the other places that are in the same condition. And from Vladivostok to Milwaukee, from Grottammare to Sapporo, the 43rd Parallel of the northern hemisphere passes. Much more than simple geographical curiosity, so much so that in Grottammare (in the province of Ascoli Piceno) on the Adriatic coast, they decided to identify the precise point where the 43rd Parallel crosses the territory. What binds Komiza to each other on …

Sea poetry by Giovanni Pascoli. I look out the window and see the sea: the stars go, the waves flicker. I see stars passing, in order to pass: a flicker calls, a heartbeat responds. Here the water sighs, the wind blows: a beautiful silver bridge has appeared on the sea. Bridge thrown on serene lakes, for whom then are you made and where do you go?

It was precisely following a dangerous incursion and temporary occupation of the town by the pirates in 1525, that Grottammare was completely surrounded by walls, fortified in the gates, reinforced with a tower called "of the battle", placed next to Porta Marina and in exact correspondence with the underlying port, so as to be able to adequately respond with the new cannons to other possible enemy incursions.

Piazza Peretti, Grottammare Alta, Grottammare, Riviera delle Palme, Province of Ascoli Piceno, AP, Marches, Italy Felice Piergentile Peretti was born in Grottammare, a small fishing village in the southern Marche, then in the jurisdiction of Fermo As Pope, he energetically rooted out corruption and lawlessness across Rome and launched a far-sighted rebuilding program that continues to provoke controversy, as it involved the destruction of antiquities. Another curiosity that links Sixtus V to the Roman "vulgate": with his tax reform, not trusting the local officials, the pope recruited his trusted fellow-countrymen from the Marche to exercise the profession of the collector.
