FERMO

Rose on the slopes of the Sabulo hill in 264 a.C in obedience to Romans' will who, preoccupied for the presence of the Piceno people in the region, decided to found a lookout-post point with the objective to watch their capital Asculum. As other cities knew a phase of development thanks to the pax augustea that left flourish the commerce all over the Empire.
As a result of the fall of the Roman Empire suffered the barbaric invasions of Goths, it was witness of the fight between Ostrogoths and Byzantins, and made part of the Longobard Reign starting from the 575.
As a result of the invasion of the French commanded by Charlemagne the territory of the Marches became part of the Patrimonium Petri (Pope Peter's property), term used to define the lands under the power of the Pope and protected by French Empire. It Became Comune in 1199 and therefore, after seeing the alternation of several lordships returned to make part of the Papal State in the XVI century.

Fermo is a city that keeps intact its medieval aspect through its town-walls and its ancient village dominated by the Cathedral of the Assunta. Of the roman period it is possible to visit the Roman Cisterns (I sec. d.C) for the water supplying of the ancient city and the rests of the theatre in Falerone.
In the center it is Piazza del Popolo that shows the ancient and prestigious palaces like Palazzo dei Priori, once Seat of the Comune and today of the Municipal Art Gallery.
In Fermo every August 15th it takes place the “Palio dell'Assunta”.
