Sarnano has a population of 3.375 and the people are known as sarnanesi. The town is 12 km north of Amandola and 45 km south of Macerata.
Sarnano is one of the few towns with its historic centre intact. The historic centre dates back to the 13th and 14th century. At the top of the hill is the Piazza Alta and below, more or less concentric streets down ro the present day town level. Very narrow and steep streets and alleyways, known as vicolo, join the different levels.
The town and historic centre are built almost entirely in brick.
Most of the photographs taken in the medieval historic centre of Sarnano. They were taken on 6th November 2008 and unfortunately the sky remained totally overcast.
