Camerano, Ancona, Italy

Camerano is an ancient town nestling on top of a hill from which it is possible to view the green vineyards of the countryside.
THE SWEET HILLS OF ROSSO CONERO
Rosso Conero wine finds its best expressions in the sweet and harmonious hills where its grapes are cultivated. Hills that are
blessed by the sun and revived by sea breezes.
Each year, in September, there is a series of wine tasting events with singing and dances throughout the streets of Camerano; where celebrations dedicated to Rosso Conero wine come to life.

GOING BEYOND THE SURFACE
Under the streets of Camerano, there is a network of knotted tunnels that unwinds into a labyrinth of caves and niches that were cut out of sandstone. It is a real underground city that enchants its visitors with its fable-like atmosphere.
BETWEEN ART AND DEVOTION
Camerano is the birth city of the painter, Carlo Maratti, who left a significant artistic heritage behind. This heritage is preserved and exposed in the Palazzo Comunale, the municipal hall. Maratti also conferred prestige to the local church of San Nicolò of Bari by transferring the remains of Saint Faustina, which were previously preserved in the Roman catacombs, to this location.
The third century church of San Francesco is also artistically and architecturally prestigious. The Saint had it built when he was in Ancona before one of his trips to the East.
MUSEUMS TO SUIT EVERY TASTE
The town hall hosts: a collection of paintings depicting the patron saints of Camerano; the "Maratti" collection which is a collection of material regarding this painter (some engravings, photographic reproductions of a number of his paintings, the curtain from the Maratti theatre realised in 1913 by Ettore Ballerini); a collection of 14 period accordions, dating back to between 1850 and 1934, all made by local companies, with those by Scandalli being particularly striking; a collection of material mostly from the Piceno period, and a fossil collection. The church of San Francesco is home to works by De Schaychis, of the Pomarancio school, and also pieces by Marco Vannetti and Fasolilli.
