Portrait of Macerata

I shot this film of a small hill-town in Italy in order to give the rest of the world a taste of its enthralling natural and anthropological beauty, a simple exercise in non-narrative video technique. The current city is over a thousand years old and home to one of the oldest universities in Italy.

Macerata is a city and comune in central Italy, the capital of the province of Macerata in the Marche region.

Typically hilly, the climate is both Mediterranean and Continental. The Adriatic Sea (about 30 km away) and particularly the Appennine mountains influence the weather. The height is about 315 meters above sea level, so winter is particularly rainy and the snow is not so frequent and plentiful.

Macerata is alluring to the tourist who wants to experience life at an Italian’s pace. It is a small, laid back city with very little tourist activity. Every summer in Macerata, many Italians and some tourists flock to Macerata for the Sferisterio Opera Festival, which is widely renown in the region.
