In September the International Accordion Festival draws musicians from all over the world ; they can transform the sound of this humble instrument into unimaginable artistry.
The historic battle of Castelfidardo is remembered by the imposing National Monument of the Marche to the Victorians of Castelfidardo, made in 1911 in bronze by the sculptor Vito Pardo, which depicts General Cialdini on horseback in the act of leading Piedmontese soldiers against the papal troops. In addition, the area of ​​the battle can be visited, with the Ossuary, the memorial of the fallen, and the Civic Museum of the Risorgimento.
