We can say with certainty that a systematic search for speleologists and geologists in the Frasassi area began in 1948, thanks to the activity of the Marche Speleological Group of Ancona. However, it must be remembered that even in the period between the two wars there were some explorations and researches by scholars of prehistory and natural sciences, but they were sporadic episodes.

Just in 1948, and precisely on June 28, Mario Marchetti, Paolo Beer and Carlo Pegorari of the aforementioned Speleological Group discovered the entrance to the Grotta del Fiume. Numerous other explorations and discoveries will take place in the area, thanks to the Caves Groups of the Italian Alpine Club (C.A.I.) of Jesi and Fabriano. In 1966 a member of the Fabriano Speleological Group, Maurizio Borioni, will find a further branch within the Grotta del Fiume, over a kilometer in length. From this moment the explorations and researches became more assiduous and enthusiastic. Five years later, in July 1971, a new discovery. This time, some young people from Jesi find themselves in front of a narrow opening from which a considerable current of air comes out.
