Nearby Oasi Biologica, on Sabulo’s hill, you can find Fermo, capital of its province and centre of the important shoes district. It was one of the most important colony of Rome, called Firmum Picenum. Now you can see the ruins of the ancient Roman surrounding wall. However Fermo became famous during the Middle Ages while it was the capital of the “Marca Fermana”.

In this period Fermo controlled a large territory between Marche and Abruzzo. Therefore the historical heritage of the town is very rich: the wonderful “Piazza del Popolo” with its loggias and its medieval buildings, the Dome, witness of the history since the Middle Ages, the ancient municipal library, the most important of the Marches and the splendid Theatre “Dell’Aquila”, recently renovated and opened to the public. The horse-race of Assunta is also famous. It is an historical reconstruction that takes place on August the 15th.
