Amandola is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Fermo in the Italian region Marche, located about 70 kilometres (43 mi) south of Ancona, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) northwest of Ascoli Piceno and about 35 kilometres (22 mi) west of Fermo. The city was founded in 1248 by the union of the castles of Agello Leone and Marrubbione, which formed a free municipality.
