Belvedere Ostrense has medieval origins, founded presumably by the monks of St. John of Arcignano; in its history, it was the state Jesi. In 1355 it was given by Cardinal Albornoz, in Nicholas of Boscareto, who began the Vicar of Belvedere until the beginning of 1400. In 1451 the formidable fortress of Belvedere was destroyed. From this period the country assumed the title of “Land” and expanded the boundaries of its territory. In 1860 it was declared town in the province of Ancona. Finally, the board meeting of November 20, 1862, based on the opinion in vogue that Belvedere had risen from the ruins of Ostra, you got to call the country Belvedere Ostrense.
