Santa Vittoria in Matenano is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Fermo in the central Italian region Marche, located about 70 kilometres (43 miles) south of Ancona and about 20 km (12 mi) northwest of Ascoli Piceno.

Its name refers to Saint Victoria, some of whose relics were transferred in 827 by Abbot Peter of Farfa from the Abbey to Mount Matenano in the Picene area (roughly the south of Le Marche) due to Saracen invasions.[4] Ratfredus, a later Abbot of Farfa, brought the body of Santa Vittoria from Farfa on 20 June 931.
