Landmarks
Falerone is a town and comune in province of Fermo, in the Italian region of the Marche, southeast of Urbisaglia.HistoryAlmost nothing is known of the ancient town except from inscriptions, from which, and from the remains of its buildings, it appears to have been a centre of some importance in the Picenum.It was probably founded as a colony by Caesar Augustus after his victory at Actium. A question arose in the time of Domitian between the inhabitants of Falerio and Firmum as to land which had been taken out of the territory of the latter, and, though not distributed to the new settlers, had not been given back again to the people of Firmum. The emperor, by a rescript, a copy of which in bronze was found at Falerio, decided in favor of the people of Falerio, that the occupiers of this land should remain in possession of it.In the Late Antiquity the city decayed, and in the Middle Ages it followed the history of the local lordships.Main sightsConsiderable remains of a theatre in concrete faced with brickwork, erected, according to an inscription, in 43 BC, and 161ft in diameter, were excavated in 1838 and are still visible. An amphitheatre, less well preserved, also exists. Between the two is a water reservoir (called Bagno della Regina) connected with remains of baths.
