Tourist Travel Guide Castelfidardo
Castelfidardo was the scene of a celebrated battle in the fight for the Unification of Italy, when the Piemontese army routed the "crusaders" of the Papal forces in 1860.
It is also known as the accordion capital of the world. In its Museo Internazionale della Fisarmonica you can see over 150 examples of the instrument. The town still has a thriving musical industry and claims that the piano accordion was developed here in 1863 from the more primitive Austrian squeeze box.
In September the International Accordion Festival attracts musicians from all over the world , who can transform the sound of this humble instrument into unimaginable artistry.
