Santa Maria della Piazza Church it is, together with St Ciriaco Cathedral, one of the most significant religious building of Ancona, particularly considering its worth artworks and for the historical importance it had over the centuries.The Romanesque Church has been built up within 11th and 12th centuries over the ruins of two small early-Christian churches. The Church has got a tripartite structure faςade, yet unfinished in its upper side; on the contrary, its lower side shows an elegant Dalmatian marble cover – made by Master Filippo (1210 – 1215) – finished by a series of small stone made arches having decorative pieces. The entrance has a solemn portal decorated round the edge by a frieze exalting its beauty and width.
