The village of Rotella is a small town located in the Marche hinterland, on the slopes of Mount Ascensione. Various theories have been developed on the origins of its name, but it seems to derive from the Latin diminutive of 'rota, small wheel'.
In spite of the major renovations that have been carried out, the heart of the town maintains an important architectural heritage: throughout its territory, in fact, very ancient sacred buildings and remains of fortifications are preserved that hint at the area's medieval past. In Poggio Canoso, for example, the fortified fortress still stands and the parish church adorned with a precious Romanesque portal, while rich reliquaries can be found in various buildings in Castel di Croce and Capradosso. A land of great history, an atmosphere of fascinating tales.
