Frontino is a small town with the smallest population in its province. It lies in the Natural Park of Sasso Simone and Simoncello: the Pian dei Prati area is home to a very interesting wildlife park that can be visited during the summer months. The town’s Medieval history is closely intertwined with that of the Montefeltro family, who controlled the area for centuries. The features that best define and sum up this town are the 13th-century Convent of Montefiorentino which, according to tradition, was founded by St. Francis in 1213, and the 14th-century watermill, known as the Ponte Vecchio, which is today home to the Bread Museum. The town offers magnificent views of the surrounding area. But there’s a unique quality to the landscape surrounding the town: the stones in the river Mutino are the same ones used to pave the streets of the town, the same ones used to build the towers and walls, and the same ones used in the fountains by Franco Assetto, an artist from Turin who inspired the “Baroque Ensembliste” artistic movement and left much of his work to this municipality, which later dedicated the museum located in the old town to him.
