Servigliano: our local town
Servigliano, in the central province of Fermo, dates back to 29BC and was named after the Roman tribune Publius Servilius. During the 18th century, the current 'neo-classical' architecture replaced medieval buildings and the town was renamed 'Castel Clementino' in honour of Pope Clemente XIV, who approved the new geometric design. It became 'Servigliano' again in 1863. Every summer, in August, the 'Torneo of Castel Clementino' re-evokes the lost Medieval period; locals parade and feast in period costume, colourful cultural events culminate in a spectacular jousting tournament.
Villa Miramonti’s holiday apartments, in their tranquil rural setting, are just 5 minutes’ drive from the elegant 'Centro Storico' which remains relatively unchanged. Three impressive portals lead into charming little squares and gardens around the elegant Piazza Roma with its small shops - butchers, grocers, general store, clothing, jewellery and antiques. There's even a traditional barber's! During the summer, there is a delightful night market in the piazza on Mondays. With its cafe-bars, gelaterias, pizzerias and small restaurants, the town buzzes during summer evenings, market days and special events!
