MORESCO

It's located in a dominant position on the green Aso valley this splendid and perfectly conserved medieval village few kilometers from the adriatic coast.

The origin of the name Moresco is uncertain. Connected to the arrival of Saracens in the Middle Ages or to the construction of a fortress for the defense of the Saracen incursions or with reference to the pebbly land (in dialect morro).
Anyway Moresco appeared for the first time at the beginnig of the XI century in a parchment conserved in Fermo. In the XII century belonged to a count Tebaldo from Moresco in order to pass then to Fermo.
Federico II and its son Manfredi managed to take the possession of the Castle that soon returned to being property of the city of Fermo. It was then a Malatesta's property (XIV cent.) and therefore went again to Fermo, always to the center of the disputes with the city of Ascoli. It remained in this situation until the moment of its unification to the Reign of Italy in 1860.

Moresco astonishes for the integrity of its village and for the presence of the Castle of Moresco surrounded by walls and for its characteristic eptagonal tower (XII century). An lower tower, said of the Orologio (Clock), is located in the other part of the village in proximity of its door of access flanked from a beautiful portico.
The churches of Moresco are located outside of the town-walls: the Parrocchiale of San Lorenzo, the Church of Santa Sofia with frescoes, the Church of San Lorenzo, and that one of the Madonna of the Elm tree with frescoes by Vincenzo Pagani.
