Brad Nixon discovers Cagli, Italy, On Back Roads of the Marche

Brad Nixon discovers Cagli, Italy, On Back Roads of the Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

As in any town, anywhere, there’s more to see in relatively small Cagli than the brief time we had, since we’d discovered it by chance, and without any advanced study. The gem of the city that we saw is another of Martini’s works, the surviving portion of a now-demolished fortress. It’s named the Tower of the Fortress, Rocca Torrione. [...]

Shakespeare in Le Marche

Shakespeare in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The couple’s program [ British actors Julian Curry and Mary Chater], Shakespeare in Italy, aims to keep Shakespeare’s work alive in the Le Marche region. Not only will they present his plays, but they also have created a program for English-speaking students. The program allows participants to study selected plays and identify the influence that Italy and Shakespeare have on one another.
Tucked into the valleys of southern Italy, Renaissance towns Cagli and Urbino are the ideal setting for a cultural association dedicated to the profound connection between Shakespeare and Italy. Teatro Comunale in Cagli is where the program’s plays take place, whereas Urbino University is where students will be attending lectures and discussions. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Le Marche may have been one of the greatest influences in the dramaturgical career of Shakespeare thanks to Baldassarre Castiglione, author of The Courtier, published in 1528, in which a main character is Duke Federico of Urbino. Shakespeare experts believe he read the book and was influenced greatly.

Travelling Le Marche: Cagli

Travelling Le Marche:  Cagli | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Cagli nestles below Monte Catria in the province of Pesaro-Urbino. It is quite far inland on the Pergolese road (strada statale).

We had a drink in one of two pleasant caffes in the main square. It was bustling and well set up, but I would be glad to know why the possibility of getting a spremuta (freshly squeezed fruit juice; very expensive) decreases the farther you go inland.

The Cagliesi are particularly proud of their Torrione, or big tower, all that remains of the town’s fortifications by Francesco di Giorgio Martini, one of Duke Federigo of Montefeltro’s architects. (The other is Lucio Laurana.)
