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.
Amandola is one of the 18 Italian municipalities located within the Monti Sibillini National Park.
Amandola was recently affected by the earthquake in Central Italy (near Amitrice) on the 24th August 2016. The hospital "Vittorio Emanuele II" which supports the surrounding areas was badly damaged and the community are crowdsourcing funds to help rebuild it. The next nearest hospital is an hour away, so it is vital to the region that it remain open.
Homes and other community buildings in Amandola were also damaged in the Central Italy earthquake registering 6.2 in magnitude.
