The southern part of Porto Recanati still preserves the remains of Potentia, a roman maritime colony founded in 184 a.C. and abandoned in V cent. d.C.; the nearby abbey of Santa Maria was instead founded in the XII cent. The history of the actual city begins in the 1299, when Frederik II ordered the construction of a castle and of a port in between the two rivers Potenza e Aspio; the castle was completed in the XV cent. (then destroyed and rebuilt many times), while the big port remained always a utopia. In the XVI cent. Porto Recanati changes its name to Porto Giulio, in honor to the pope Giulio II and during this period was built the church of the Banderuola, where in 1294 the Holy House made a halt in its translation into Italy. Always linked to the city of Recanati, Porto Recanati reached authonomy only in 1893.
A note of interest goes to the Picture Gallery Moroni. The court of the castle hosts today the Arena dedicated to Beniamino Gigli, place of numerous events and manifestations.
