‘Agriturismo Floriani’ is in the heart of the Marche region, only 2 Km from the centre of Macerata on the panoramic hill of Montanello within easy reach of numerous historic towns in the Marche region. It is set deep inside ancient wooded grounds including mature olive groves producing our own extra virgin olive oil. Agriturismo Floriani is named after the Knight of Malta, Pietro Paolo Floriani, an ancestor of the Floriani family who live in the family home to this day. Floriani was a renaissance man- a 17th century military engineer, and theatre designer as well as author of ‘ Diffesa et Offesa delle Piazze’, an important text on military defence in those times.
Floriani is best known for the design and building of the impressive fortifications of the city of Floriana in the Mediterranean islands of Malta.
