The Belvedere, traditionally known by the Massinesi as the firre (irons), stretches over the underlying Val Menocchia with views from the Sibillini mountains to the Adriatic Sea.
It takes its name from the nearby noble palace of Renaissance style inhabited until the 60s and belonging to the Tassoni family.
The family, originally from Modena and Ferrara, moved to Piceno in the early sixteenth century and boasts among its most illustrious members the jurisconsult and auditor of Rota Alessandro Maria, the doctor Giambattista and, during the Second World War, the podestà Adolfo.
Not far away is the War Memorial, located at the exit of the village under the Tassoni belvedere, consists of a staircase, a central arch, two truncated pillars (on which are carved the names of the fallen) resting on historiated bases, an altar top surmounted in the center by a flame and finally two bas-reliefs depicting a partisan and a piety.
Realized in the late 60s, it is the work of the offidano Aldo Sergiacomi, sculptor on marble among the most important of the Piceno in contemporary times who participated in the setting of the Vittoriano in Rome together with the master Angelo Zanelli.
