ORCIANO DI PESARO

The presence of a small temple dedicated to Janus in Roman times, provides evidence of Orciano’s ancient origins. The name probably derives from “orcio”, a clay vase which was used to contain offerings and placed in the temple. Birthplace of the famous sculto Gio’ Pomodoro, the central square where once his house stood, is named after the artist and was designed by him. Orciano is a peaceful small town typical of the inland region and allows the visitor to rediscover signs of the past spent in the tranquility of a country life and the small fortified towns such as the small medieval castle town of Montebello or Rupoli, a small rural castle town dating back to the late medieval period. Orciano hosts the Museo della corda e del mattone (museum of rope and brick) which was set up to commemorate traditions and trades of the past which have shaped the town into its current image.
