Polverigi is a small village lying on the hills of the Conero Riviera. In antiquity it was called Pulverisium from the Latin “Pulvis, Pulviris” (dust) because of the sandy and dusty land where it is located. It was a small inhabited center and therefore a destination for hermits. Now the historic center is characterized by caverns and enchanting alleys that give the visitor the sensation of being in a “romantic atmosphere”.

We suggest you visit the Sacrament Church (St. Mary Magdalene), built in the 14th century, which preserves some elements of Gothic-Romanesque architecture.

Festival and events

Discovering Polverigi means living its history and traditions.

The Festival of the Peace, in the Rustico suburb, is performed during the third weekend of June, where the liberation battle of Polverigi took place in 1944. In addition to the usual food stalls, the Festival is characterized by the 5 km walk of Peace on Sunday morning, starting from the main square to Rustico where a flower crown is placed to honor the fallen soldiers of all wars.

In a weekend of July, lovers of handmade pizza meet in Polverigi for Pizza Gustando.

In June/July the Inteatro Festival takes place with exclusive national and international performances.

In July the Oscar delle Stelle (Oscars to the Stars) is not to be missed. Performances, culture, songs, fashion and entertainment are guaranteed in the magical setting of Villa Nappi. Conferring the Oscars to well-known personalities who, in some way, are linked to the Province is also an opportunity to promote the territory.

In Mid-September, the Festa delle Streghe (The Night of Witches) takes place in the historic center.
