Musiculture show!!

The seniors attended the  "Musiculture" show organised by CNA Pesaro e Urbino at the Raffaello Theatre in Urbino.

Visit to the "Musei Civici" in Pesaro

The Greek seniors visited the "Musei Civici" and "Palazzo Mosca" in Pesaro. Since 1936, Palazzo Mosca has been the seat of the local museum, the Musei Civici. The palazzo is now a property of the city of Pesaro, but it once housed one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the area. The Moscas were rich merchants from Bergamo and they moved to Pesaro around the mid 16th century. They were soon to become members of the local aristocracy, and their fast rise to economic power gave them the chance to build Villa Caprile, a mansion just outside the city centre, and Palazzo Mosca, the building that took their name, in the very heart of Pesaro.

Visit to the natural park of Pesaro

The park faces the Adriatic Sea with a spectacular cliff and it reaches its maximum altitudes on the hills of San Bartolo, Castellaro, and in the villages of Casteldimezzo and Fiorenzuola di Focara. It is an extremely important point for the bird migration and an ideal place for many species of birds which spend the winter here; it is also important from an archaeological and historical point of view, since although it has a limited extension, it is very rich in finds: from the Neolithic finds in the area of Mt. Castellaro to the archaeological site of Colombarone along the ancient Via Flaminia, from the lost ports of Greek origins of S. Marina and Vallugola to the charming system of Renaissance villas and gardens.
