The history of Ascoli Piceno has such ancient roots that only by leafing through the original art history manual embodied by the town itself can we reconstruct its evolution.
Visiting Ascoli Piceno is like reading a history book with pages made of travertine – the strong, porous white stone that lent urban unity to the town centre. A town characterised by interwoven and often brutal vicissitudes, where any type of event was celebrated with an artistic frenzy the results of which we can still enjoy today. Centring on the town and its monuments, this volume brings together fascinating historical events and important artistic commissions that made the history of this provincial capital in the Marche.
