Old Postcards and Photos from Ascoli Piceno

Tutto Doppio is in the province of Ascoli Piceno, in eastern Le Marche.  The province is named after its capital city, Ascoli Piceno.

Ascoli is a beautiful old town, positioned at the confluence of the Tronto and Castellano rviers, and nestled at the foot of the mountains.  It lies along the via Salaria (“salt road”), an important route that the Romans used to transport salt to Rome. It’s a really lovely place, with a couple of magnificent piazze, and warm, friendly people.

Giovanni Vagnarelli has put together a slide show of 150 postcards and pictures of old Ascoli Piceno.  Much has changed, but not too much!  Enjoy!
