 Welcome to Italy in Photos and immerse yourself in the heart of San Ginesio: – San Ginesio is a municipality located in the Marche region of Italy, specifically in the Province of Macerata. It is situated about 60 kilometres southwest of Ancona and about 25 kilometres southwest of Macerata. As of December 31, 2004, it had a population of 3,872 and an area of 77.7 square kilometres. The town is known for its strong medieval stamp and breathtaking views of the mountains. It retains its original medieval plan, surrounded by walls with sentry’s walkways, embrasures and towers. San Ginesio is a member of the I Borghi più belli d’Italia (“The most beautiful villages of Italy”) association and is included in the National Park of the Sibillini Mountains. San Ginesio is often referred to as “the village of 100 churches” due to its rich artistic heritage housed within numerous churches. The historic centre boasts the splendid Collegiate Church, whose crypt houses delightful early frescoes decorated by Lorenzo Salimbeni, the 13th-century Romanesque church of San Francesco; and the town’s civic museum, housing many works by Marche painters of the 15th and 16th centuries. The town is also known for its local wine. A San Ginesio Rosso blend features a minimum 50 percent component of Sangiovese. In terms of events, the most important ones taking place in San Ginesio during the year are the International Folklore Festival “The Balcony of the Sibillini” (July / August) and the historical re-enactment “Medievalia, Palio of San Ginesio and the Battle of the Fornarina” (August).
