The Hidden Theatres of the Marche

The Hidden Theatres of the Marche | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

[...] Ian Arnott, a retired architect, has penned his first book, 'The Hidden Theatres of the Marche' - the story of how a tiny, isolated area of Italy came to have one of the biggest concentrations of theatres anywhere in the world.
Ian had initially been asked to research the subject by the Royal Scottish Academy, but it turned into something much more.
He told the Courier: "It started in 2006 and it was a music holiday that we took to the Marche.
"It was half a dozen private concerts and recitals and it was set in some of these restored theatres that I'd never heard of. As far as I could gather, nobody else had either. Nobody really knew where the Marche was.
"It's a very little-known area, even to Italians, and they don't go there because it's the wrong side of the Apennine Mountains. It's tiny - it's only 100 miles by 50.
"I got interested in the buildings and then I discovered that these half dozen were only the tip of the iceberg. It had more theatres than any other area of Italy in terms of concentration.
"I just became curious as to why this came about. It was never a terribly poor area but it was certainly never one of the prosperous areas of Italy. Why did they want so many theatres and how did they procure them? How can they afford them?
"The book, I think, sets out to provide some answers to these questions. And of course, focuses on the buildings themselves: many of them were so beautiful. As an architect, they interested me.
"The book looks at the region and tries to analyse the effect of these theatres on their population, and on their towns and villages."
Ian returned to the Marche, where he spent about two and a half weeks researching for the book [...]

La ferrovia Porto San Giorgio – Amandola

La ferrovia Porto San Giorgio – Amandola | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

La ferrovia Porto San Giorgio – Fermo – Amandola entrò in funzione nel 1908; per coprire i circa 60 km il treno impiegava tre ore... La tratta denominata anche A.F.A. (Adriatico – Fermo – Amandola) nacque con numerosi difetti congeniti: lo scartamento ridotto, la costosa trazione a vapore invece di quella elettrica che avrebbe consentito una velocità maggiore. Tutte scelte che l’avrebbero penalizzata sin dall’inizio e avrebbero portato alla chiusura dopo soli 48 anni di onorato servizio.  [...]

That is known for woods, witches and fairies. Placid and restful even cloaked in gray, and fresh. Patient even when it is windy and it is heavily rainy. A "soap and water" land - you think - because historically outside the major trade and military routes or because too close to the popular Romagna, Tuscany, and Umbria. And perhaps this is why you observe it with increasing curiosity and surprise. You are in the Marche.

Ten great reasons why you should book your holidays via Marche Owners Direct

Ten great reasons why you should book your holidays via Marche Owners Direct | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it
The holiday website for your Le Marche farmhouse, apartment or villa rental. Book Italian holidays with confidence direct from the owners & get special offers.

 

Ten great reasons why you should book your holidays via Marche Owners Direct -

 

1/ Excellent value – you will not find any of our properties at lower prices elsewhere and they may even cost less via us. Watch out for special Spring saver offers coming soon! These offers will not be available anywhere else.

 

2/ You book directly with the owner – no middlemen or hidden fees. We are not agents.

 

3/ We probably have the perfect property for you – with a variety of places from fabulous small hotels, apartments for 2 to 6 people, country villas for small and large groups and organic agriturismos we have places to suit all size parties and pockets. If a pool and wifi is important for you we can help with that too.

 

4/ We are happy to advise you about the right place for you – do you want to be close to a town or village? Do you want to be a short drive to the beach? Is the house child friendly? Do you need seclusion in a peaceful place? Are you wondering about a wedding here? Do you want to go hiking or biking in a stunning national park? Just give us a call and we’ll try to help.

 

5/ You can trust us – we all know each other and can verify our places are real – no need to worry about scammers.

 

6/ We know our areas very well – we can tell you about the best restaurants, secret picnic spots, our favorite beaches, when the local markets are held, how to find amazing bargains in the outlet shops, we give you our top tips and insider knowledge to make sure you have the best possible holiday. Between us we have over 200 years of experience gathering this information – we are delighted to share it with you.

 

7/ We have loads of ideas about things to do – from cooking classes to quadbiking, horseriding, mountain biking, paraponting and hang gliding, opera going, clubbing on the beach, wine tasting and buying, foraging for wild foods, boat trips, shopping for designer goods at massive discounts – whether you are after a really active holiday or a totally indulgent one we can help.

 

8/ If you are thinking about buying a place for yourself here we can point you in the direction of agents we trust and advise about the whole process – we have all been through this ourselves.

 

9/ We may be small but we ARE beautifully formed – with the big boy rental sites becoming unwieldy in the amount of properties advertised – many of them by agents taking a slice of 10-20% on top of the true cost of your holiday - isn’t it cool to be dealing with a grassroots local group who really care about their guests? We have the places that are ‘the needle in the haystack’ to save you days of researching!

 

10/ Most importantly we are all passionate about our part of Italy and genuinely want to help our guests love it as much as we do, we will bend over backwards to help you have a brilliant time here.

Email us at info@marcheownersdirect.com or call us on our skype line – it is a UK number so charged at Uk prices 0115 714 1877

How fantastic to read that our wonderful Ascoli Piceno has been

mentioned by the Touring Club Italia as one of the top 10 places to visit in the world! It certainly is one of our favourite places to visit and wonder round the travertine piazzas and streets. Congratulations Ascoli Piceno!

 

http://www.touringclub.it/notizie-di-viaggio/dove-andare-nel-2015-dieci-buoni-motivi-per-dieci-luoghi-imperdibili

 

Via Google Translate and the Visit Ascoli Website:

 

"Amazing, elegant and discreet": these are the words used by the Italian Touring Club to describe our lovely city. The prestigious association, landmark in publishing and storytelling tourism can provide the traveler with the tools to responsible tourism and quality, has mentioned the Marches capital among the 10 destinations in the world must visit in 2015.

 

The city of a hundred towers in the month of January has been included among the 10 tourist locations that are worth a visit at least once in their lives alongside most famous cities like Florence and emblazoned, Città di Castello, Matera - the latter crowned their quest 'year as European City of Culture in 2019 - but also on the side of international destinations such as Istanbul, Stockholm.

 

Treasure chest of art and culture, Ascoli Piceno is a city yet to be discovered. Away from the main flow of mass tourism, the city has managed to preserve its authenticity over time: a jewel of travertine that still shines its former glory!

 

Known abroad than for its beauty for its food and wine doc , according to the editors of the guides touring the city of hundred towers has an intrinsic potential yet to be expressed. Its plot of rue and towers develops in plain in a few hundred meters and can be visited on foot or by bike.

 

The succession of churches, palaces, museums trace the symbol of different ages who have crossed and marked the history of the provincial capital. In its precious historical center, Ascoli Piceno in fact preserves intact traces of the medieval past that, in Piazza Arringo is expressed again in all its beauty.

Praised for its beautiful Piazza del Popolo , ideal setting for cocktails and coffee enjoyed in the company lends itself to be discovered and admired each time under a different guise.

 

Also mentioned the events and traditions of the capital Piceno place of tourist attraction for the Quintana , the historic Carnival and the calendar of events which this year includes events on the occasion of the Franciscan.

 

Ascoli for the entry in red guides of touring club will be a unique opportunity of great attraction for all those who want to enjoy a trip to the open sky in the history and beauty!

The Winning Le Marche | Le Marche outpaces Tuscany as emerging holiday hotspot | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

The latest figures from I.stat, the Italian National Tourist Board, reveal that the previously undiscovered region of Le Marche is now outshining Tuscany in tourism growth.

Tuscany, famed since the 90s as one of the world’s top tourist destinations, registered an increase of 4.6% in foreign arrivals from 2012 to 2013, whilst the far more unknown neighbouring region of Le Marche saw impressive growth of 6.3% year-on-year.

With 389,313 visitors now arriving on Marche soil, more and more people are beginning to recognize that this Italian location has all the benefits of close-by Tuscany, seemingly endless rolling hills, beautiful open spaces and ancient hilltop towns, yet without the hefty pricetag. [...]
