Sassoferrato and the Piccola Grande Italia Festival of little Municipalities

Sassoferrato and the Piccola Grande Italia Festival of little Municipalities | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Sassoferrato, 8000 people. Surely, this town will have a bar, a church, a woman who weaves on Sunday…

But no! There are 12 churches full of frescoes and fantastic art, a monastery called Santuario Madonna del Cerro, an abbey, a castle, and a very important archaeological site called Sentinum, which sits along the ancient Via Flaminia road system, not to mention quite a few museums, from art to archaeology to ethnography.

Things you might never get to see will be open to you during the Piccola Grande Italia festival on June 2, 2012. If I were you I’d go to Sassoferrato. There are some incredible treasures there, besides the ones I’ve pictured here (a scene from the Abbey and a mosaic from the archaeological museum).
