CASTELCOLONNA DI TRE CASTELLI

This is a small town in the province of An­cona. With its appearance as a small castle town, its walls and  Mala­testiana tower, Castel Colonna gives evidence of a historical past which is connected to the ancient past. It was inhabited by the Picentes and once called Tomb of Senigallia, it changed names several times until it acquired its current name in 1921 in honour of Vittoria Colonna, Pope Martino V’s niece and  Carlo Malatesta’s bride, who lived here in the first half of the 15th century. Belonging in ancient times of the “Terre di Frattula” (Frattula lands), together with Corinaldo, Senigallia, Monterado and Ripe, Castel Colonna is renowned for an ancient tradition of rural food specialities: spit-roasted pork and the “salame di Frattula“. In 2009 Castel Colonna was awarded the Green Flag for Agriculture.
