Point of interest

Built in the mid-seventeenth century in the same area of ??the ancient church of St. John Lateran, it is now incorporated in the old people’s home commissioned by Gaspare Spontini.

At the entrance on the left you will find the marble sarcophagus where Gaspare Spontini is buried; the medallion is by Antonio Canova while the painting on the main altar depicting the "Crucifixion” was donated to the church by Celeste Erard after her husband's death (1851).

Municipality

Emperor Frederick II spent his childhood  here!
A legend claims that Monte Roberto derives its name from Roberto il Guiscardo (1015-1085), while  an historical document  of 1079 reports that Roberto was probably a  Longobard  feudal layman, a "lord of the place”.
Monte Roberto became a real castle only in the course of the thirteenth century.
Visit the ancient Planina ,mentioned by Pliny the Elder, near St. Apollinare Abbey. Important ruins were visible up to the XVIII and XIX centuries: in 1881 a necropolis Piceno (VI century BC) was found in Noceto district and  the remains which were then brought to light are now kept in the National Archaeological Museum of Ancona. Do not miss them!
In 1219 Monte Roberto was already part of the County of Jesi until its split in 1808.
Have a walk along G. Leopoardi Street, then the “Borgo”, the historical centre which developed in the XVII and XVIII centuries.
Downstream from Monte Roberto, you can visit Pianello Vallesina which had a remarkable increase  in the last sixty years. It is partly divided with the municipality of Castelbellino and it initially grew around the church of Santa Maria del Trivio dating from the XVII century.
Do not forget to visit the church of St. Benedict built in 1921 – 1925.
