Montelupone marche

Recanaticomune in italy

Among the streets of the village stand out for their beauty and magnificence the noble palaces, once homes of the ancient families of Montelupo. In particular, Palazzo Emiliani deserves attention for two features, such as the frieze of the painter Biagio Biagetti depicting the Four Seasons interpreted through the vegetative cycle of wheat and because, in the nineteenth century, it was the seat of one of the first hotbeds of the Carboneria, which gathered the citizens of Marche and Romagna in preparation for the first revolutionary movement for the Italian Risorgimento.

The Church of Santa Chiara, seat of the ancient convent of the Clarisse, was built between the XV and XVIII centuries. Inside the church you can admire the doors inlaid by Cristoforo Casari in 1796, and the Annunciation of the Virgin, copy of Barocci, of the XVIII century. At about 4 km from the center, there is the Benedictine Abbey of S. Firmano built in the ninth century in Romanesque style with three naves, with the precious lunette of the portal in Byzantine style. Inside, under the high staircase, there is the enchanting crypt with the relics and the statue of the Saint in polychrome terracotta.


According to the legend, the village was born under the sign of Ercole Libico. Most probably the name derives from the powerful Lombard family of Luponi: one of its members, Lupo I, is known around 787.

1353, Fra’ Moriale at the head of his mercenary company enters Montelupone, from where he leaves to plunder the neighboring centers; in 1363 the village falls under Pierfrancesco di Brancaleone, lord of Urbania.

Mindful of the antiquarian culture that circulated in the Franciscan convents of the Marche, the inhabitants translate the “doing” in love for the landscape, traditions, art, so that in the village today return to settle painters, sculptors, young artists. The past resurfaces from the ancient walls and the present seeks its way in the revaluation of artistic craftsmanship and products of the territory: in this balance Montelupone lives today.

Work of the nineteenth-century architect Ireneo Aleandri, the Town Hall overlooks the square with its neoclassical loggia. To its inside the historical theater Nicola Degli Angeli is disclosed, conceived from the same Aleandri and executed in 1884 from Giuseppe Sabbatini. The theater, of neoclassical imprint, has two tiers of boxes and a small gallery, but is admired especially for the ethereal ceiling painted in 1887 by Domenico Ferri that creates a farce burlesque leaving suspended in a sky of clouds a group of young children who pretend to be angels musicians.
