Jesi – Studio for Printing Arts

The museum is located in the 16th century “Pianetti vecchio” building, in a spacious and luminous hall, a suggestive and visually gratifying setting, where printing presses and equipment from various ages are on display, together with rare and fine books.

It was opened in 2000 to document the city’s long-standing printing tradition. Federico de’Conti was the Marche region’s first printer and printed one of the earliest editions of the Divine Comedy.

Jesi – The Ripa Bianca Nature Reserve

Until the mid 1980s, this was the home to Jesi’s landfill site along with a neighbouring gravel quarry, relentlessly animated by diggers and trucks at work.

La tradizione vuole che qui nascesse, il giorno di S. Stefano del 1194, sotto un grande padiglione appositamente eretto, Federico II di Svevia. L’avvenimento è ricordato da una lapide scritta in più lingue, posta sulla facciata del Palazzo Ripanti.
