It is a municipality in the province of Macerata, located on top of a hill and surrounded by lush vegetation, between the valleys of Chieti and Potenza. Thanks to the geographical location on the Apennine ridge, Camerino has secured a prime location, difficult to reach and easy to defend, which has always favored it over the centuries. The city still retains a prominent original urban structure and is characterized by steep slopes of the terrain, with deep overhangs and beautiful views of the surrounding valleys.
Evidence of relics and monuments attest that the area was inhabited since prehistoric times and was colonized by the Romans, who bestowed citizenship to its inhabitants. Dissolved the Roman Empire, it was conquered by the Lombards and in the late VI century, became part of the Duchy of Spoleto, assuming great political, religious and military importance. Berengar of Ivrea, King of Italy, in the X century, ordered the construction of strong fortified walls. In the XII century, the small city was proclaimed municipality and during the course of the XIV century until the mid XVII century, it submitted the domain of the Da Varano Family, who had a new circle of walls built to strengthen the fortifications. In 1545, when the Papal States took over, the center submitted a period of slow decline, which became even worse under the rule of the Napoleonic government.
