Acquaviva Picena

3.8
Acquaviva Picena is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Ascoli Piceno in the Italian region Marche. The village lies on a hill over the Valley of Tronto, just a few kilometres from the Adriatic Sea and San Benedetto del Tronto. From the top of the hill (365 m.s.l.), it’s possible to see the Sibillini Mountains (Monte Vettore), and even the further away Gran Sasso and Majella.HistoryThe Acquaviva area has been inhabited since prehistory, proof of that are several archaeological finds, most of which are from the Piceno age, but also from the Roman Age. When the Picentes (or Piceni, italian), which settled here during the VI century b.C., were subdued by Roman forces, the village of Acquaviva survived thanks to the closeness to Castrum Truentinum.During the Barbarian Invasions the village grew into an urban settlement: the coming of Longobards and Saracens forced the coastal population to move inland. The village was originally owned by the Farfa Abbey (947), then became feud of the Acquaviva’s family (hence the name) that build the fortress during the XIII century.
