In the historic center of Novafeltria, the gaze is immediately captured by Palazzo Segni, the current headquarters of the municipal offices, in Art Nouveau style, characterized by a portico where in 1926 the first Café, still open today, was installed, and by the Oratory of Santa Marina, a clear example of a Romanesque structure, whose construction dates back to 1191.

Walking down Corso Mazzini, we encounter the Teatro Sociale di Novafeltria, an Art Nouveau jewel, built with the contributions of 72 local families and inaugurated in 1925 with Puccini's Boheme, while at the end of the Corso the eye is caught by the Pieve di San Pietro in Culto, of Romanesque origin.

Near the center we find an installation dedicated to Ivan Graziani, the beloved Novafeltriese singer-songwriter by adoption: a large pair of red glasses, marking the entrance to the Park dedicated to him.

It is an ideal destination for those seeking the perfect combination of history, culture, nature and gastronomy also thanks to its hamlets, small gems that are definitely worth a visit.

When to go and what to see

Elegant Piazza Vittorio Emanuele overlooked by 17th-century Palazzo dei Conti Segni, now home to the town hall, boasts a Romanesque treasure - the Oratory of St. Marina. 

The entire municipal area is interesting, with a few outlying villages well worth visiting. These include Perticara, which is surrounded by a pine forest on one of the slopes of Mount Aquilone and was an important mining centre.

Sulphur was extracted in ancient times, but the main vein was only exploited from 1917 onwards. It employed 1,600 men in what became an underground city with 100km of tunnels on 9 different levels. The activity ceased in 1964 and this had a devastating effect on life in the village and the thriving community of 5,000 residents.

The Sulphur Museum keeps alive the memory of these past times.
