Ascoli Piceno

The city of Ascoli Piceno was founded in the 11th century BC by the Piceni population. The legend tells about a woodpecker showing them the way during their research of a new territory to live. The name ìPicenoî comes from this legendary woodpecker (ìPicchioî is the Italian word indicating woodpecker). The city has been subjected to many changes over the centuries, passing through different historical periods: from the Romans to the Longobardsí dominations, then the Middle Ages, the period of the free Municipalities, and the annexation to the Papal States in the 15th century. The city still preserves a lot of historical and artistic evidences of its great past, mostly located in its extended city centre, built almost entirely with local travertine. Ascoli is one of the most admired cities of the central part of the Italy, thanks to its artistic and architectural treasures. It is commonly known as the city of ìThe one hundred towersî, as a consequence of the noble towers and the bell ones which rise in its historical city centre.
