Fermo is the youngest of the five Marchigian provinces. It extends inland from the Adriatic coastline towards the Sibillini mounts. Three rivers flow across these lands: the Tenna, the Ete and the Asso. History, Nature and Art weave stunning cultural aspects on these wonderful lands. Roman and Picenum archaeological sites tell about past times in these valleys including religious and war matters; everyday life, architectural and artistic expressions of old ancestors.
Marche continues to celebrate old traditions and most ancestral art crafts. Enactments, festivals and open markets are everyday cultural manifestations on these territories. Fermo stands out for its shoe industrial clusters; hats and crockery are traditional local productions for both the Italian as well as foreign markets
