Ancona - The Market of the Herbs


The Market of the Herbs in Ancona is a remarkable Art Nouveau building in iron and cast iron. It was built in the mid-twenties of the 20th Century by workers of the nearby shipyard, making use of the metal of some abandoned ships. Also noteworthy are the Roman mosaics found right beneath the adjacent High Street Mazzini and the market itself (dating back to I Century B.C. - I Century  A.D.)
