Marco Lorenzetti's comment, January 23, 2013 10:13 AM
Carissimo. Il tuo amore per la nostra bella (E bistrattata regione) ti fa onore. Un onore, questo, da me condiviso visto che anch'io l'amo tantissimo. Questo piccolo estratto devi farlo leggere a loro poiché il risultato della votazione è stato proprio questa antimarchigianità propagandata a più non posso dai promotori del referendum. Commento di uno in un forum dove si parlava proprio di questo: '"Ridete pure, intanto 7 comuni delle marche ritornano alla madrepatria". Che dirti? Tutto ciò è molto triste...

Io credo nel principio di autodeterminazione e supporto la loro scelta senza condividerla. Accade con molte terre di confine, si calpesta la propria identità per questioni di opportunità.

Waiting the Ski season - Autumn in Le Marche: Montegallo

Montegallo, a nest of tranquillity with suggestive outline of Mt Vettore
From the top of a high hill this village, previously called Santa Maria in Lapide and “Mons Sanctae Mariae in Gallo”, dominates the enchanted kingdom of mythic Sibilla. 
The municipality of Montegallo includes 23 villages, situated at the feet of the Vettore Mount (2,476 m), the highest peak of the Sibillini Mountains. The architecture of the town is bound to the presence of the Benedictine monks, who settled in the territory before the birth of the municipal magistracies. The name Montegallo is believed to derive from the presence of Narcisio Gallo (an envoy by Charles the Great) who is believed to have founded, in the 15th century, the castle of the territory on the mount. The population moved later towards the valley, giving birth to the present Balzo, chief town of Montegallo.
Watching over this angle of paradise, in the most elevated part of the village, is the 17th century church of San Bernardino, with an antique decorated portal and interesting interiors, characterised with six monolithic columns in tuff.

What to see:

Palace Branconi with elegant facade Casa Brandani, from the 17th century are facing the streets of the centre

In Balzo:

doors and windows in carved stone enriching the oldest dwellings built among the 15th and the 16th century.  The church of Santa Maria in Pantano, once used as a station on Francisca road (crossing over the Sibillini)  Santa Maria in Lapide, unique rest of an ancient monastery of monks Farfensi are also very interesting.

Unpolluted nature of Montegallo, together with sincere hospitality of its inhabitants, introduces a visitor to harmonious serene timeless atmosphere.

Seriously, the hardest part was choosing the photos out of 115 to put on the blog, they were all wonderful, thanks to digital technology and God's paintbrush.

Stella Tayler - Wedding Dresses from Le Marche | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

A refined bow is an eye-catching detail which smoothes the rigours lines. A drop of romanticism flows across the simple dresses with prestigious fabrics. It is the perfect blend of tradition and modernity. Organza and duchesse dresses have a more structured shape, as well as soft volumes. Linear, structured or wide, the result is a dress that always comply with elegance requirements. White stays the colour of purity, also in the shades of ivory.

Benedictine Monks Open Brewery in Norcia | Norcia | ITALY Magazine

Benedictine Monks Open Brewery in Norcia | Norcia | ITALY Magazine | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

Carol King reports on how Benedictine monks in Norcia have revived the art of beer making.

Monks have always drunk beer and many popular craft beers come from monasteries experienced in the art of beer making. In keeping with this tradition, the monks at the Monastero di San Benedetto (Monastery of St Benedict) in Norcia, Umbria, opened the Birra Nursia brewery.

The beer is so popular that the 3,000 bottles produced to launch the brewery sold out in a few days. Even Pope Benedict XVI has had a bottle, when the monastery’s founder, Friar Cassian Folsom, gave him one during a papal audience.

Norcia is the birthplace of St Benedict and the beer-making activities of the monastery’s Benedictine monks see them following an ancient monastic tradition. For the monks of Norcia, beer has always been a beverage reserved for special occasions, such as Sundays and feast days. The Birra Nursia brewery was conceived with the hope of sharing with others the joy arising from the monks’ labours. The brewery’s motto is taken from the Biblical Psalms: ‘ut laetificet cor’ (that the heart might be gladdened).

 

At various times a barnyard, repair shop and granary, the brewery carries with it hundreds of years of history. It lies within the walls of the monastery that date back a millennium and its entrance is crowned with a fresco of the Virgin Mary upon grains of barley. The monks make 700 bottles in each batch in order to ensure the beer is of a high quality. Locals in Norcia have helped in the construction of the brewery and the community has a role in the brewing process, although the most important aspects are reserved for four monks.

The master brewer, Brother Francis Davoren is from Dallas, Texas, and is assisted by Brother Massimiliano Silvati from La Spezia, Liguria. Most of the monastery’s monks are American because in 1998 a group of monks arrived in Rome from the USA. A community without a home, they moved to Norcia in 2000, so breathing new life into the ancient monastery that had been closed since 1810. The monks decided that a beer created according to the Belgian monastic tradition would best complement Norcia’s style and atmosphere. The malt comes from monasteries in Belgium and Germany, but the process – from the grinding of the grain to the bottling and labelling – is carried out in Umbria’s Valnerina valley.

They developed two kinds of beer: a blond beer that is light and buoyant, suitable as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to appetisers and first courses; and another ‘extra’ beer with a deep, rich flavour that is excellent enjoyed on its own or with savoury meats such as wild boar and lamb, or fresh or aged cheeses.

The beer is sold at the monastery gift shop, Corvus et Columba (The Raven and the Dove – a raven is the symbol of St Benedict and a dove the symbol of St Scholastica), immediately adjacent to Piazza San Benedetto. The beer is also available in local bars and restaurants. An image of the rose window in Norcia’s Basilica of St Benedict graces every bottle as a sign of the monks’ respect for the saint’s birthplace.

Any revenue produced supports the work of prayer and witness of God, which is the monk’s duty. This includes giving a warm welcome to pilgrims and poors, who are sure of finding hospitality at the monks’ door, as well as contributions to the cultural and spiritual growth of the town.

Tours around Birra Nursia will be available once a year, from the 14th to the 15th of August and will include a tasting session of recent brews. No reservation is required for the tour. A small private tasting room is available next to the gift shop for those who wish to order larger quantities.

* * *
The Birra Nursia brewery website is at http://birranursia.com/ and the monastery’s is at http://osbnorcia.org/. Birra Nursia beers are available in 33cl and 75cl sizes, costing €8.50 and €3.20 respectively. The larger bottles are available in cases of six and the smaller bottles are available in cases of 12.

Adoption has never been so easy in Le Marche

Nudo offers you the possibility to support Le Marche family farmers in Central Italy. Adopting one of their olive trees you will enjoy a supply of premium Italian olive oil from your own tree.

Jason Gibb and Cathy Rogers, husband and wife (only Jason in the video), have notched up careers as TV producers, TV presenters, marine biologists, medics, diving instructors, and church organists. In 2005, the passion for the Extra Virgin Olive Oil has precipitates them, in Le Marche. New country, new life, new challenge, living and working in an Italian olive grove in Loro Piceno, a small town in the province of Macerata.

They had to learn everything from scratch, but, cleverly, with a different approach they reached the triumph. In the close Abruzzo there were the successful "adopt a sheep program" and they decided to launch their ‘Nudo Adopt an Olive Tree’ scheme.

Nowadays, adopting a tree with Nudo, you can choose a specific olive variety and related mono variety olive oil, follow the life of your tree, support the local Italian family farmer who would have otherwise gone out of business.

Olives preserved in brine

Olives preserved in brine | Hideaway Le Marche | Scoop.it

If you have a source of fresh, raw olives, you may know that they are completely inedible straight off the tree. Who first realised that olives could be delicious? The story goes that some olives fell into a rock pool on the shores of the Mediterranean a couple of thousand years ago. The salty rock pool was replenished by the tide twice a day, and a month or so later, when the bitter juices had been leached out by osmosis, an adventurous (and hungry) soul was passing. She scooped out the bobbing olives, and popped them into her mouth. Delicious. And the next thing I need to find out is who was the learned soul who first realised that olives and brine are delicious in a martini.
