AMANDOLA

COMUNANZA
A medieval village located on the river Aso. Archaeological excavations in the vicinity of Colle Terme (Hill Spa) demonstrate that the site was inhabited in Roman times with the presence of thermal baths. The current settlement originated in the fifth and sixth centuries, when some families in the city of Ascoli moved to this area to escape the raids and barbarian invasions. The village had ups and downs and was contested between Amandola and Ascoli, remaining in the sphere of influence of the latter. About a mile outside the village, close to Mount Passillo, 588 m, there are still ruins of the castle that was of the Nobili family.

ASCOLI PICENO
The city's origins are shrouded in mystery but it is quite certain that the area was already populated by the early Bronze Age. According to ancient literature (Strabo, Pliny and Festo) the city was founded by the Sabines, an Italian tribe who lived in the central Appennines, who were led by a woodpecker to the area. The Sabines later merged with other indigenous tribes, giving rise to Piceno. Ascoli became the main centre thanks to its location on the Via Salaria or Salt Road - which connected Latium (Lazio) with the salt of the Adriatic coast. Ascoli Piceno is one of the monumental cities of Italy. The old town is entirely built of travertine, a form of limestone, extracted from the quarries of the area, and is centred around the Renaissance Piazza del Popolo, where you'll find some of the most important buildings including the Palazzo dei Capitani, the historic Caff Meletti and the church of San Francesco. In July and August there is an historical parade followed by a tournament called the Quintana - six knights compete for the six areas of the city ride the course consecutively trying to hit an effigy of an Arab warrior.
Distance by car: 25 min
