Macerata

Macerata, provincial capital city of Marche, it is set on the summit of a hill between the valleys of the Potenza and Chienti rivers; the local economy is essentially commercial and agricultural, but the resources coming from the tourist sector are also very important. The city, founded by the fugitives of the ancient Helvia Ricina, was a community already in the 12th century. Its history is characterised by the passing of rule after rule until its annexation to the State of the Church territories, to which it belonged until Italy was united. Macerata offers significant places of interest to those who intend to spend the holidays enjoying culture and art. Among the main architectural attractions we can mention the Arena Sferisterio (amphitheatre) in a neoclassic style, a structure unique in its kind and centre of important summer lyric seasons; and the University, one of the most ancient of the world, whose building dates back to 1290. The spectacular Palazzo dei Diamanti, the characteristic Loggia dei Mercanti (Merchants' Loggia), the impressive Civic Tower, the majestic Cathedral, the suggestive Basilica of Santa Maria della Misericordia and the historical Fontemaggiore, main Macerata water reservoir, also deserve to be mentioned. The city that adheres to the Association of Cities of Art and Culture has also a rich museum structure that includes the Ricci Palace, the town Art Gallery, the Carriage Museum, the Museum of Natural History and the Museo Tipologico del Presepe (Cribs museum). Tourists really love folk music events and shows in the square, for example, the San Giuliano Festival, Macerata's patron saint, every August 31st.
