The capital of the Montefeltro mountain area, Carpegna is located on the mountain bearing the same name, near the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, in a very green area, loved by mountain sports enthusiasts. Many outdoor activities, such as hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking, skiing, paragliding and hang gliding are practiced in this area.
At the center of the town, the Palazzo dei Principi Falconieri was the hub of one of the largest art rescue operations during the Second World War. Here, more than 10,000 works of art from all over Italy were secretly gathered and stored, saving them from German bombings and pillage. The town is also known for its ham, the “Prosciutto di Carpegna”, and every year during the third weekend of July, a ham festival takes place, with many shows, tasting events and food stalls.
