Spinetoli

Description

Town in the province of Ascoli Piceno, situated on a hill not far from the sea, near to where the Tronto meets with the stream Fiobbio, the municipality, in addition to the main centre, includes the districts of: Villa San Pio X, Pagliara del Tronto (which counts more inhabitant than Spinetoli), Villa Ciarulli and Villa Palazzi.
The discovery of a necropolis of the VII-V century B.C. and the remains of houses, weapons and utensils evidence that the area was inhabited by Piceni, an Italic population, that failed to stop the Roman colonization, and although, at first, they choose to form an alliance with the Romans, they weres defeated by them in the battle of Ascoli. The area became part of the "Picena Augustea region". After the fall of the Empire, the area was subject to frequent Barbarian attacks and to protect Spinetoli, the town was fortified. During the Middle Ages, the town belonged to the monks of Farfa. Later the town submitted the domain of the Bishop of Ascoli, until it returned to the monks. The next years were marked by Norman and Swabian invasions and the whole area was affected by periods of pestilence and famines, and destroyed by various earthquakes. In the XV century the town was directly involved in the historical struggles between Ascoli and Fermo, before and between Guelphs and Ghibellines, later. The Papal States lost control of the territory with the advent of Napoleon.
