Guided tour Jesi - Tourist guide Jesi
Jesi is one of the most beguiling towns in Ancona’s inland and boasts a sophisticated old centre and lively cultural life. The guided tour of Jesi starts ,by looking at its most striking feature , that greets you as you arrive - a belt of massive 14thC walls, built on Roman foundations and later strengthened with buttresses and impregnable towers, and topped by houses.
Piazza Federico II lies at the north-eastern end of the town where the Roman forum of Aesis once lay. Its name recalls the birth here of the fabled Medieval Hohenstaufen Emperor Frederick II in a tent on 26 December 1194.
A few steps down Via Pergolesi and you will be in Piazza Colocci and in front of Jesi's most remarkable building, Palazzo della Signoria . This Renaissance palace was built at the end of the 15thC ;the large rampant lion above the entrance is the symbol of the power the city once held.
Inside the tourist guide of Jesi will show you the three-tiered courtyard with brick piers on the first level, marble on the second and wooden on the third.
Carry on along Via Pergolesi to Piazza della Repubblica; Jesi's largest square is dominated by the town's 18thC theatre, Teatro Pergolesi, home to a prestigous autumn opera season and named after the composer Pergolesi,who was born here in 1710.
From here the long main Corso Matteotti runs straight as an arrow.
On parallel Via XV Settembre stands Jesi's most flamboyant building, Palazzo Pianetti. Apart from its hundred windows, the bland facade little prepares you for the over-the-top Rococo flourishes inside. The most extravagant part is the sugar-candy stucco work in the long galleria. The over-blown decoration alone would merit a visit; the added bonus of the civic art gallery makes it obligatory as here is kept a small group of some of Lorenzo Lotto’s finest works: the Judgement of Santa Lucia, a Visitation, an Annunciation and a restless Deposition.
