Polverigi and the land of castles

Getting to know the region Marche: Polverigi and the land of castles.

Between the valleys of the rivers Esino and Musone and upon the hills behind the city of Ancona, the borgo of Polverigi and the land of castles developed in the year 1000. Together with four municipalities (Agugliano, Camerata Picena, Offagna and Santa Maria Nuova) Polverigi is part of the so-called land of castles, taking the name from the beautiful fortifications that rise in this area, archtectural structures which offered shelter and safety to the powers of Ancona.

Polverigi

It used to be called Polverisium (i.e. “dust and sand”), instead of the tranquility that inspires today, it actually was a land of wars that is the reason why there is a medieval castle built in 1198. Because of its strategic position, among the most important cities of the region Marche, and only 20 km fram from the Adriatic Sea, Polverigi played an important role during battles and the still-existing fortress is the most important witness of its ancient history. In Polverigi there is also and important monastery, where the development of the whole municipality took place, after a period of crisis, and then found new life thanks to the French and the first Mayor Count Nappi by the end of the Eighteenth century. The Count Nappi bought the monastery and turned it into his own Summer house, and the building can still be visited and inhabited. During the Summer the town of Polverigi becomes particularly interesting and there are several occasions for festivals and celebrations, such as the Night of Witches!
