Portrait of Macerata - a wonderful short film about one of our nearby towns.

I shot this film of a small hill-town in Italy in order to give the rest of the world a taste of its enthralling natural and anthropological beauty, a simple exercise in non-narrative video technique.
The current city is over a thousand years old, built on the ruins of an ancient one, and home to one of the oldest universities in Italy.
I shot this on my T2i with Magic Lantern and the Cinestyle preset. I left most of my gear at home this trip and just brought the tiny 18-55mm kit lens, a 50mm f/1.4, a travel tripod, and a custom-built motorized slider.

Bocelli e Jeff Beck in memoria di Pavarotti

Bocelli e Jeff Beck in memoria di Pavarotti | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

Non solo Elisa, Jovanotti, Zucchero, Morricone. Al Luciano's Friends, il 6 settembre a Modena (e in diretta su VanityFair.it), si aggiungono nomi di rilievo.

 

Ci saranno anche Andrea Bocelli e Jeff Beck tra i grandi della musica e della liica che - insieme a Elisa, Montserrat Caballé, Lorenzo Jovanotti, Zucchero e Ennio Morricone - si esibiranno in un concerto evento in memoria di Pavarotti.

 

Il 6 settembre, il Luciano’s Friends-  The talent goes on condotto dall'amico Fabio Fazio, ricorderà il maestro a cinque anni dalla scomparsa. Non solo al Teatro Comunale di Modena che porta il suo nome. Ma anche su VanityFair.it, dove potrete seguire il concerto in diretta web (e, prima, i suoi preparativi, con anticipazioni, racconti e retroscena).

Accanto ai big, per festeggiare anche i 20 anni dalla prima edizione del Pavarotti & Friends, il live benefico voluto dal maestro quand'era ancora in vita, si esibiranno giovani promesse dell'Opera a cui la Fondazione Pavarotti desidera dare un'opportunità.

Comune di San Ginesio » MangiaStorie

Comune di San Ginesio » MangiaStorie | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

MangiaStorie is a Music and Food Festival, which combines a simple but effective formula. It offers the simple yet humanly strong chance to spend an evening having dinner with some of the most exciting Italian musicians.

 

MangiaStorie wants the meeting between ear and mouth, but also much more: it wants to be the occasion to offer an appropriate approach from the public the personal dimension of who is usually placed on a different plane, namely the stage, allowing you to discover up close, straight to dinner, some leading members of the current music scene.


Nothing like sharing the fundamental approaches of the food, opening up dialogue. It is known that like the music culture, that contains all the references to the culinary traditions, literature, customs, history, the mentality of the country or the historical context in which it was born and developed.


The formula MangiaStorie combines all this with ease. The Festival is made through 3 meetings to dinner at the Restaurant "Il Borgo" of San Gineseo (one of the most beautiful villages of Italy).


For each night is combined with a menu that bears links, references, links, contacts and influences between the kitchen and presented the nature of the musician / musicians protagonist / s of the evening.


The performance is as natural can be: you book for dinner, and upon arrival all guests will make acquaintance with the guest, with whom it will be possible for the whole evening of sharing and exchanging impressions, reflections, points of view.


The dinner menu which agreed with the Artist will be announced below and forms the path through which the Artistic Director will accompany the guest to talk with everyone present.


All dishes and select wines for the occasion and taste of delicacies will have a close reference to the themes of the evening.


At the end, the guest will perform voice and guitar, piano or voice and some songs from her repertoire.

Finding Smerillo, Le Marche

Finding Smerillo, Le Marche | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

Last week, though, on a whim, I treated myself to an excursion to Smerillo after a visit to our accountant.

A view over sunflower fields to the Sibillini on the drive to Smerillo
You’ve probably never heard of the small hill town of Smerillo; it has had a rather undistinguished history, constantly being conquered by one larger neighboring town to another. It may have some Roman connections, but the ruined walls there are medieval rather than Roman. I don’t think, though, that a place has to have to have had a triumphant –or a tragic history -- to warrant a visit. Sometimes beauty is enough. And that Smerillo has in abundance

Now tell me that this is not a wonderful place for a washing line and that it doesn't make you feel so much better than if you were staring at a tumble drier.

Flowers flow around every doorstep and vegetables struggle to escape protective garden fences; the stone houses and ruined walls are mellow in the sunshine; and the views make you smile involuntarily and long to share them with somebody you love.

The Guide to Italian Aperitivo and Drinks in Italy — Ms. Adventures in Italy | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

If you have read my blog before, you know that I love aperitivo in Italy. Getting an aperitivo in a bar or hosting aperitivo at home, it’s one of my favorite things about living in Italy, especially in Milan which I proclaim the “Capital of Aperitivo in Italy.”

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about Italian aperitivo, or Italian aperitif in Italy, or to host one in your own home, this series is for you.
