This issue belongs to the series “Italy of Art” and highlights the lovely town of Recanati, located in the Province of Macerata.

Officially founded in the middle of the 12th century, Recanati (pictured above) probably originated from the ruins of an ancient Roman town known as Ricina. Known as a city of art, rich in Renaissance and Baroque palaces and wonderful examples of religious architecture, Recanati is also famous for being the hometown of Count Giacomo Leopardi, one of the greatest Italian poets.

The obverse depicts the complex of St. Augustine with the façade of the church, the cloister, and the bell tower. This particular church is famous for being celebrated in Leopardi’s poem “Passero Solitario” (“The Lonely Sparrow”). In the foreground to the right is the municipal coat of arms, with a lion rampant. The reverse includes a detail from Lorenzo Lotto’s painting The Annunciation, which is housed at the Museo Civico Villa Colloredo Mels of Recanati.
