Fiordimonte is a classic example of the evolution of ancient Medieval settlements: over time, they became rural villages that grew on valley rather than on hilltops, thanks to safer political conditions and to agricultural development. Fiordimonte’s economy still relies heavily on agriculture. It is situated in the upper valley of the river Fornace and it consists of many ancient hamlets. Its Town Hall is in Valle and Castello. Fiordimonte is known for its hunting area, which covers 3000 hectares of land by the Sibillini mountains National Park.
The visitIn the centre, there are still some parts of the walls, a gate to the ancient castle and the Church of Sant'Antonio. This church, erected in the 13th century within the fortifications, houses 15th century portals and windows on one side and a Crocifisso tra Madonna e Santi by Girolamo di Giovanni. There are several interesting churches scattered among the hamlets: the Church of San Sebastiano in Villanova, the Church of Alfi with a 1513 triptych by Francesco da Lucca, and the parish church in Nemi, which houses a few works and by Paolo da Visso, with a picture of Madonna di Loreto and a Madonna in trono con Bambini e Santi by Giovanni Boccati.
Do not missFiordimonte is a little village where the relationship with the surrounding nature is still important and where it is possible to enjoy the art testimonies that have marked the local history.
