The topic we want to deal with concerns the underground path located in the "bowels" of the historic center of Camerano (Ancona). The construction of the caves probably dates back to the first excavations in the mid-fourteenth century, but their expansion and modification continued until the recent partial segmentation interventions, often improperly carried out over the years by private individuals from the accesses of their respective cellars and by some consolidation interventions, philologically not very attentive to the peculiarities of the places, carried out in the years "60 /" 70 following some collapses that occurred under the route of the current Via Maratti. The use of this underground labyrinth has undergone various purposes over time: from sandstone quarries for future building constructions (many of the buildings in the historic center are made up of blocks of sandstone) to places of worship (the most representative environments have a planimetric conformation typical of churches of the '500 and' 600), to places of refuge for the people (from Muslim raids to the Second World War), to simple cellars for the optimal conservation of local wine. These underground structures were not built on the spot, but are the result of a millenary activity of excavation, expansions, collapses, adaptations to the evolution of the different needs of the population and which today after the restoration and enhancement works is finally possible admire in their full extent and beauty.
