Villa Bonaparte in Porto San Giorgio Copyright All rights reserved © By itravelinitaly.com travelers from Italy Photo by Baldassarri Giuseppe. 
Villa Bonaparte, Via Girolamo Bonaparte, 63822 Porto San Giorgio FM, Italy. The Villa, in neoclassical style, has a facade adorned with bas-reliefs, stairs and balconies in travertine from Ascoli, and is surrounded by a large park, which in front forms a sort of terrace, while at the back it opens into a beautiful garden. Even the frescoes, which decorate walls and ceilings, are of neoclassical taste and create an atmosphere of other times, graceful and refined, in which it is very pleasant to dive. The villa became both a worldly place where the Fermo aristocracy participated in parties and banquets, both a notable cultural landmark and a center of political activity. It was precisely because of the latter, in fact, that the permanence of the Bonaparte family in Porto San Giorgio was short-lived, thus breaking the dream of all the local nobles…

Rocca Tiepolo Fortress, Via Leonardo Da Vinci, 3, 63822 Porto San Giorgio FM, Italy. Porto San Giorgio, the city of the riviera, was born as a fishing village that until - from Roman times - was linked to the city of Fermo becoming its port. Its importance was so great that it was named in the Itinerary of the Emperor Antoninus, dating back to the century. III d. C. and the Tabula Pentingeriana, an ancient map of the Roman imperial era. It appears with the name of Castello Firmani. Center of maritime traffic of the hinterland and of Fermo from and to Venice, it made sure that a friendly alliance was established between this city and Fermo.

The Theater of Porto San Giorgio

Image
Location; Porto S.Giorgio - Teatro, 63822 Porto San Giorgio FM, Italy, 63822 Porto San Giorgio FM, Italy. The Theater of Porto San Giorgio, formerly Teatro Vittorio Emanuele II, was inaugurated in 1817, after five years of work and was designed by the architect Giuseppe Locatelli di Tolentino. The dedication of the theater to Vittorio Emanuele dates back to 1860, in honor of the stage that the King made during his trip to Porto San Giorgio. The event inspired the scenographer Mariano Piervittori of Foligno for the painting of the great Curtain of the Theater which however was stolen in the 60s. In 1910, the San Giorgio painter Sigismondo Nardi masterfully frescoed the vault of the theater, with a great allegory of the arts and human destiny, framed in a web of stars and nets, signifying the fishing vocation of the city and its inhabitants. The vault of Nardi gives the Theater an original and very precious historical-artistic profile. The hall, in the classical horseshoe shape, is deli…

Il laterizio in Grottammare Borgo

Image
Location: 63066 Grottammare AP, Italy. Brick is a product made of ceramic material with a porous paste, used since prehistoric times in construction, which is a very important building material. It is created with purified clay, pressed into established shapes, dried and cooked in special ovens. The coastal and hilly areas rich in that clay, so stingy from an agricultural production point of view, have favored the use of bricks, derived from the firing of the clay itself. Booking.com

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 …

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…

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.
