Area archeologica di Potentia - Porto Recanati
Potentia Archaeological Area- Porto Recanati

The archaeological area is located in the Santa Maria area where excavations are bringing back to light the Roman colony of Potentia, founded in 184 B.C. by the triumviris Quinto Fabio Labeone, Marco Fulvio Flacco and Quinti Fulvio Nobiliore.

In 56 B.C. the colony underwent a huge earthquake, followed by a reconstruction phase.
The period of greater vitality was the Augustan age, which saw also its maximum urban expansion. A settlement continuity is attested up to the Late Roman Empire, before the definitive abandonment.

Currently, some remains of a domus with mosaic flooring and frescoed walls are visible, together with the porticoes of the square with the annexed "Taberne" and a temple on a high podium from where numerous architectural terracottas come from.
