Macerata

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Marche  /  Province of Macerata  /  Macerata
Macerata is a city and comune in central Italy, the county town of the province of Macerata in the Marche region. Together with the modern town, sprawling on the plain below, it has a population of about 43,000.HistoryThe historical city center is located on a hill between the Chienti and Potenza rivers. It consisted of the Picenes city named Ricina, then, after the romanization, Recina and Helvia Recina. After the destruction of Helvia Recina by the barbarians, the inhabitants took shelter upon the hills, and eventually began to rebuild the city, first on the top of the hills then they descended again and expanded. The new rebuilt town was Macerata. It became a municipality (or Comune in Italian) in August 1138.GeographySubdivisionsThe town counts several hamlets and localities: Acquesalate, Acquevive, Botonto San Giacomo, Botonto Sant'Isidoro, Cervare, Cimarella, Cincinelli, Collevario, Colleverde, Consalvi, Corneto, Helvia Recina, Isola, Madonna del Monte, Montanello, Piediripa, Sforzacosta, Valle, Vallebona, Valteia, Villa Potenza.ClimateTypically hilly, the climate is both Mediterranean and Continental. The Adriatic Sea, which is about 30km away, and particularly the Appennine mountains influence the weather. The elevation of Macerata is about 315m above sea level, so winter is particularly rainy and the snow is not so frequent and plentiful. Balkanic and northwestern perturbations may cause snow. Middle seasons are variable, and late snowfall and frost may occur during April. October is neither warm nor very cold. Summer is rather sunny, and sometimes the thermometer reaches 40C. Garbino is the cause, a hot wind from the hinterland. Summer thunderstorms are frequent in August, during the evening when the weather becomes quite unstable.
