The municipality of Roccafluvione is just a few kilometres from Ascoli Piceno, along the Fluvione torrent. Its territory covers 60 square kilometres divided into 54 hamlets and has been inhabited since Neolithic times, as documented by artefacts – mainly helmets, axes and spears – on display in the archaeological museum of Ascoli Piceno.
The artistic heritage of Roccafluvione is extensive and is characterized by the presence of ancient churches, many of Benedictine origin, including Santo Stefano Protomartire, built in the twelfth century, and Santi Ippolito e Cassiano di Pedara, built in the Romanesque style of the twelfth century, at the mouth of the Fluvione gorge, with a distinctive façade tower that played a defensive role. Inside, the church contains frescoes painted between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries.
The area of Roccafluvione is also rich in fine food resources, like the prized black truffle. There is also a natural bridge, a waterfall and numerous scenic trails for walking, horseback riding and mountain biking, for those who enjoy outdoor sports.
