This side of the Signoria Malatesta hills have a gentle and stretched profile, ideal to build on castles and villages where defensive purposes and civil development could coexist and give their best.
So it was for that Saludecio from 1500 1800 until it has become the most important town in this part of the Conca.
A small capital where refined palaces and village houses have created a popular and noble style at the same time, which has remained intact to this day. A large church, almost a cathedral, dominates the square, a small but well-kept museum tells the art and history of the town, the walls are surrounded by tree-lined avenues and gardens, the inner streets come alive during the summer thanks to a series of reviews and parties.
On these hills men have settled since ancient times; because they are fertile, with great weather, easy to live and, not least, very beautiful. It is therefore normal that they are related in Saludecio of Roman times and the top medieval, and it is obvious that here was born a rich and powerful country that has managed to consolidate its position even after the defeat of the Malatesta family.
