Pennabilli (Marche)

Pennabilli is a medieval town in the Province of Rimini, in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna. Its territory is partly covered by the Regional Park of Sasso Simone and Simoncello. It has been on the Italian Touring Club’s Orange Flag list since 2010, a prestigious award for little places of great natural beauty with excellent tourist amenities. Pennabilli has maintained its historical identity by preserving its medieval origins. Many old gates and sections of wall are still visible today, such as Porta dei Billi, Porta Cinzia, Porta Carboni and Porta Malatesta, along with various official buildings erected in the 1500s when the diocese moved here. Other interesting monuments are San Leone cathedral, the church of Sant’Agostino, the Bishops’ Palace, the monastery of St Anthony of Padua. Tonino Guerra, writer and screenwriter, during his stay, enriched the city with a number of permanent artistic installations, which were named "I luoghi dell'anima" (places of the soul).

We are buying a house close to Sarnano, we will be there this fall. Are there any furniture stores in that area? Thanks

Can anyone recommend a chimney sweep in the Fermo region of Marche, ideally between Amandola and Comunanza?
