History traces

The city of Giulianova has definitely very ancient origins, proved also by the fishing devices found here dating from the protohistory ages. Giulianova developed greatly in Roman times, when it became an important commercial port, able to keep contacts with the north and the south of the peninsula. The name of the city itself, Giulianova, is a Roman name and it derives from Iulia Nova. We can speak about the birth of the Roman city of Gilianova about 290 b.C., with the first name of Castrum Novum Piceni. It was a marine colony strategically positioned above the sea level, confining with the two rivers, at north and at south. Giulianova had no protection walls thanks to its natural defence system.

During Renaissance, Giulianova flourishes thanks to the actions took by Giulio Antonio Acquaviva d'Aragona; its main objective was to transform the small city into an important cultural centre, renovating the town's infrastructure and encouraging study and culture.
