He also participated in the decoration of the church of San Pietro Martire in Ascoli Piceno. Morelli also designed the aedicule outside the church of San Francesco in Piazza del Popolo of Ascoli Piceno.

Grottammare gave birth to Sixtus V, the tough pope

Grottammare gave birth to Sixtus V, the tough pope | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Among the many pontiffs who held in their hands the fate of Rome, Sixtus V (1585-90) is indeed one of the most special and controversial ones. During his pontificate, which lasted only five years, he altered the city's arrangement according to the Renaissance standards, changing its look more than any other ruler or administrator had ever dared to do before him, even during a much longer reign. 

He was born in Grottammare in Le Marche in 1520, as Felice Peretti, from a humble family. He then joined the clergy as a Franciscan friar. After becoming an expert in theological matters, he was appointed inquisitor in Verona, where he built his fame of implacable man of law. Read the full article

Montappone an history of Le Marche - many photos

Montappone an history of Le Marche - many photos | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Our local history is, however, more ancient than Romans, it began around the 9th century b.C. with the Picenes. According to the greek historian Strabo (that lived most part of his life in Rome), at the beginning of the Iron age the Picenes moved in our lands and the whole Marches from the Sabina Region, that nowadays is the province of Rieti. The confirmation of this fact comes from the finding in 1973 of the Penne S. Andrea epigraphs written in picene language, in which the Picenes define themselves SAFINUS SAFINAS TUTAS, that is Sabines of the Sabine community. During that migration, tells Strabo, they were led by a bird sacred to the god Mars: the woodpecker, that is PICUS, thus Picenes.
