It is also the international capital of accordion builders. Whether or not you play, why not visit the International Accordion Museum when you are in The Marches? For more information consult http://www.accordions.com/museum

The town of Pergola is best known for the Gilt Bronzes from Cartoceto di Pergola, the only surviving Roman gilt bronze equestrian group. They were discovered by accident in fragments shortly after World War Two. Their restoration took decades. Believe you me, it was worth it.
