i... GATTI di RIPA

Ripatransone, known as the "Belvedere del Piceno" offers beautiful scenic views and a rich heritage of art, traditions and history.
There are many historical buildings in Ripatransone: churches with works of art, interesting medieval monuments and the famous, most narrow alley in the whole of Italy (its width varies between 38 and 43 cm). Worth visiting are the "Luigi Mercantini" Theatre and the "Teatro delle Fonti", which is carved out of the ancient city wall that goes back to medieval times.
There are also some interesting museums: the "museo vescovile d'arte sacra" hosts religious artwork; there is the "Pinacoteca Civica" picture gallery and the humble "museo della civiltÓ contadina e artigiana", which displays artifacts from the worlds of farming and craftsmanship.
Not to be missed are the firework display of the "Cavallo di Fuoco", which is held on the first Sunday after Easter; the "Puzzle Gastronomico" during the mid-August holiday of "Ferragosto"; the "Castagnata" which takes place on the last Sunday of October and the "Vie di Bacco", a wine and food themed stroll in the month of November.
In the hinterland of Ripatransone there are many places of great historical and artistic interest, for example: Offida, a town that is famous for its lace and embroidery work; Grottammare, with its typical sea hamlet and museum dedicated to the sculptor, Pericle Fazzini (who created the famous "Resurrection" sculpture in the Papal Audience Hall in the Vatican) and Montalto delle Marche, the town of Pope Sixtus V.
Just 10 kilometers away, passing through a scenic route of hills, vineyards and olive tree groves, the visitor reaches the beaches of Grottammare and San Benedetto del Tronto, which are famous for the beauty of the coastal area (La Riviera delle Palme) and the numerous tourist-seaside attractions.
In 1868 the great musician Franz Liszt thus described his stay here: "The blue sea, the pleasant lush hills, the mild climate and the aroma of oranges are a poetic masterpiece that rivals the heavenly harmony of music..."
