Ripatransone

Description

Municipality in the province of Ascoli Piceno, in the valleys of the river Tesino and the stream Menocchia, on top of a ridge, from where it is possible to admire a vast and beautiful landscape, Ripatransone contains, within massive walls of the XV century, a medieval town. It also features houses with porches and beautiful palaces built in later periods. It is a city of art and at the same time, a Summer resort, which attracts several tourists every year. Its local economy is based on a significant agricultural production of wine and oil specialties.
The area was inhabited since the Neolithic Ages by Italic populations of Umbria and Piceno. Later it was colonized by the Romans and subject to the invasions of the Barbarians after the Empire's fall. In the XIII century, the town was the first rural municipality in Italy, affected by battles with rival cities and was disputed, for a long while, between the noble families of Malatesta and Sforza. In 1444, the town submitted one of the most memorable attacks by the troops of Francesco Sforza, that only a year later, it was able to regain its freedom. The town was proclaimed capital of the County in the Napoleonic era.
