Pedaso rock lion head Italy, Lungomare dei cantautori del XX secolo, Marches, Pedaso, Province of Fermo. I don't miss fantasy, but it always seems, every time I walk along the promenade of the 20th-century singer-songwriters in Pedaso, to see a lion's head of rock emerging from the sea. Its coastline has natural rocks with the most different names given to them due to their appearance or their connection with ancient stories.

Near my house, in Marina di Altidona, I can get there on foot, there is a little paradise, called the blue lake.

The pentagonal tower with Ghibelline crenellation in Ortezzano

Image
Location; Torre Ghibellina, Via del Forno, 63851 Ortezzano Province of Fermo, FM, Italy. «Evocative village, it rises on the top of a hill slope that dominates the left bank of the river Aso, situated in the middle valley. Proud and full of historical suggestions, it stands at 301 mt. above sea level. The concentration of monuments of historical and artistic interest in the center, in relation to the territorial extension, makes Ortezzano a real open-air museum. It sees its origins getting lost back in time, up until the time of the Piceni (IX-III century BC). The fertility of the territory, already in Roman times, favored the establishment of rustic villas, one of which was identified in the district San Massimo, where a valuable floor mosaic depicting the Four Seasons came to light. From the 8th century, the territory enters the ranks of the Farfensi possessions witnessed today by the monastery of San Silvestro, the Curtis Sanctae Marinae vel Mariae in Ortatiano, and the Curtis of S…

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…

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.

Amazing, however, in our region, is the considerable number of theaters that place it in first place in Italy for their density compared to the number of inhabitants. The more than one hundred theaters, scattered in a rather uniform way in the various provinces, testify not only to the high cultural ferment that animates our land, but they represent historical-architectural monuments of inestimable artistic value.

Castel San Giorgio, Corso Castel S. Giorgio, 63822, Porto San Giorgio, Province of Fermo, Fermano, FM, Marches, Italy. The origins of the current inhabited center seem to date back to the 11th century, when Venetian or Dalmatian fishermen settled on the hill, a natural defense. Castel San Giorgio, from the name of the fortress that dominated it, in the mid-13th century an alliance was established between Venice and Fermo, which favored the development of commercial traffic headed by Castel San Giorgio. In 1267 the mayor of Fermo and the future Doge of Venice Lorenzo Tiepolo transformed the port into an equipped and military port of call; he also built a fortress, which he would take the name, to watch over the Saracen incu…

Church of Santa Maria di Capodarco, Piazza della Repubblica 14, 63900, Capodarco, Province of Fermo, Fermano, Fm, Italy.
Capodarco is one of the four districts of Fermo, the story says that already in 1100 there was a fortress built at the height of Monte Secco: from some documents it appears the Castrum Montis Sicchi, with its general council that was summoned to Fermo on occasions of great strategies that governed the city. In the territory, there was also a strong religious presence, so much so that the owners of the area made a donation of land for the construction of a building for the care of the spirit entrusted to the Franciscan Friars. The religious place was appreciated by the nobility of Fermo: it was said that …… .. “not far from Fe…

Arco del Diavolo, Via Cacciona, 63822, Porto San Giorgio, Province of Fermo, FM, Italy. Arch of the Devil, little is known about the "Del Diavolo" arch or door. It is located to the west of the fortress walls, and it seems to be an escape route that Girolamo Bonaparte seems to have closed, as it allowed almost direct access to his Villa. The approach of the Devil to the name of the arch seems to be due to one of the ancient popular legends of the city. In fact, it seems that anciently few had the courage to pass under the arch after sunset; it was said that at night the devil himself came out of that door and frightened those in the area.
