Piceno tracks in the Conero Riviera

An itinerary to discover the Piceni people

Piceno tracks in the Conero Riviera
The Piceni was a population with Italic origins of the 1st millennium A.C., in a delimited area where we can find, nowadays, our region Marche and the northern part of Abruzzo.During the IV century A.C., the Galli population invaded their land by occupying a northern zone that changed then its name into Ager Gallicus. A century afterwards they joined forces with the Romans for the Battle of Sentino, and after that the picenum population started slowly to change its own traditions and habits into Roman ones.
