Towns & Places



Macerata was allegedly founded after the destruction  - in 408 - of the nearby Helvia Ricina, a thriving small town that had existed since the 3rd century B.C. Today Macerata, a town with very profound and ancient origins, seems to be lying on a hill dominating the River Potenza valley on the one side, and the River Chienti valley on the other.
