MONTELUPONE

Even if the territory was inhabited by the Picens since the VII cent. the present Montelupone immediately declares its medieval origins through its urban planning.

In the sphere of the fight between the State of the Church and Longobardo Reign, the territory was given back to the Church with a donation by King Desiderio in 729.
In the territory then settled the Benedictines of the Abbey of S.Firmano and the Grimaldi family that began to build a convent adjacent to the abbey.
Montelupone became free Comune (Municipality) in the XII century knowing a period of development and crescent importance but the fight between Papacy and Empire carried to the failure of Republican ideals and to the birth of the lordships. Had the power in Montelupone: the Mainetti (1294), the Chiavelli, Fra' Moriale (1353), the Malatesta (1407-1433), the Sforza (1433-1447).
Montelupone returned later to the Church until the moment of its unification to the Reign of Italy (1860).

A curiosity: in 1799 in Montelupone found shelter Monaldo Leopardi in escape from Recanati besieged by the bandits. With him there was his one year old son: Giacomo Leopardi.

Montelupone is a medieval village able to to provoke in the visitor great emotions for the integrity of its walls with intact towers, the splendid doors, its noble palaces and the main public square where the civic monuments of the village are located.
To be visited in Montelupone the Palace of the Podestà with a high tower with Ghibelline merlatura that stands in the main Public square, today center of the Civic Museum. The Church of S. Francesco (half of the XIII cent.) and the Church of S.Chiara (XV-XVII cent.) are the main religious monuments of Montelupone.
