Castelfidardo (Marche)

Castelfidardo is a town in the province of Ancona, in the Marche region of central-eastern Italy. It is remembered for a Piedmontese victory over an army composed of foreign volunteers defending the Papal States, on September 18, 1860. The town's Museum of the Risorgimento, in the palazzo Mordini, commemorates the battle and places it in the wider context of the Risorgimento as a whole. It houses artifacts and documents of the period, including around 130 loans from private collections or other museums. In addition, Castelfidardo is home to a number of renaissance-era buildings, including 'il Palombarone` a 1580 construction which underwent extensive renovations in the early 21st century. Castelfidardo is the international capital of accordion builders. A variety of other musical instruments besides the accordion have been produced in the town since the 19th century, such as the armonica.

What others are saying about Marche

Dear community,

We are currently looking into buying a property just outside of Macerata. Does anyone know of a good English speaking solicitor in the area as our Italian is very basic? 

Thank you

 

@nick asks:

Household bills, have I thought of everything?

insurance, gas, electric, water, TARI and IMU......anything I’ve missed? We are in the process of buying a house near in Le Marche so any help/ guidance appreciated. One last thing; is IMU and TASI the same thing?

@Jim D asks:

Hello everyone.  I have a house in Le Marche.  We have some big old (50+ years) olive trees that have traditionally been pretty good croppers and we planted about 20 new ones around 5 years ago.  The old trees have not been pruned for a year or so.  We now have very few olives on the old trees cu
