Very similar story to my father's. I would guess that a general letter/email to the Town Council of Fermo might get the required response. Unfortunately I don't have any direct contact myself.

Delighted you found this thread useful. I knew nothing at the outset about the location of the camp but, with the help of others, I have been able to pin down the exact location,

Good luck

Thank you, yes a brilliant thread - been wondering for ages how to pin point the exact location, and then found this today after making the decision anyway to go to Italy last week!  Will go out on the 24th July and very excited to go to the exact location.
It does sound like they followed a similar journey, and such a moving account, it has stuck with me since first reading it in 2005 and now this - I will send an email now to the Town Council!

Glad it has been of help.

 Rootschat has been an enormous help to me in locating information through other threads so it has been a pleasure to repay that by assisting others.

 I don't know if anyone has seen the "Youtube" video published by a person called Simon Mitchell when he visited the site, the video is called PG70.Ex Campo di Prigionia (PG 70). He walks round the site and buildings very interesting.

Hi everyone, i wrote two articles about PG70:
- A story reconstruction with photos of the camp (old and new). https://seremailragno.com/2017/01/25/pg70-fermo/
- A historical chronology of the place (prisoner camp, reception camp, linen mill, tannery of skins, now is closed).
https://seremailragno.com/2017/01/25/cronologia-storica-pg-70/
This articles are in italian language but you can use traducer in my site to see in english version. I live in Monte Urano about 5 km from PG70. To visit the place you have to call the caretaker and make an appointment. Say me what you think about!

Michele
My apologies for a slow reply.

I watched your videos and enjoyed them. It was great to get a look at the camp.
