On the seafront of San Benedetto del Tronto there is a 1997 monument by the sculptor Ugo Nespolo, a work in colored steel, seven meters high, inspired by verses of Dino Campana: "I prefer the sound of the sea that says construct, make, undo. Making and undoing is an entire work.

That's what I know how to do." In Nespolo's work, however, the words change, becoming: work, work, work ... And it is work "with the sea" that is the representative sign of this small town of the Marches. The recovery of the maritime civilization and growing interest on the part of historians and scientists have encouraged awareness toward safeguarding the city's archival patrimony, library, and museum.
