The ancient heart of the city, dating back to medieval periods is located between the port and the surrounding hills.
Developed alongside the seaside in the centuries that followed, it grew towards the south- west and the east in the second half of the nineteenth century. Ancona suffered serious damage in the earthquake of 1972.
