Province of Macerata

Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Marche  /  Province of Macerata
Macerata is a city and comune in central Italy, the county seat of the province of Macerata in the Marche region. Together with the modern town, sprawling on the plain below the historic centre, it has a population of about 43,000.HistoryThe historical city centre is on a hill between the Chienti and Potenza rivers. It first consisted of the Picenes city named Ricina, then, after its 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, before descending again later and expanding. The newly 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 approximately 30km away, and particularly the Apennine Mountains influence the weather. The elevation of Macerata is approximately 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.
Province of Macerata is in Marche. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Province of Macerata and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
