Fermo the pre-Roman town in Le Marche Region of Italy

Fermo the pre-Roman town in Le Marche Region of Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Fermo was built on the top of the hill Sabulo by the Villanovian people (9th century b.C.).
Fermo became a densely populated city in the Roman Ages. Today we can still admire the underground cisterns (1st century), that provided the water for the city, and the ruins of the ancient walls.
In the Medieval Ages the bishops of Fermo were the most powerful lords of the middle Marche. They ruled a large land including Macerata, Porto San Giorgio and Civitanova Marche.

The Polar Museum of Fermo

The Polar Museum of Fermo | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Polar Museum of Villa Vitali is the only museum in Italy dedicated to the peoples and the environment of the Arctic regions, and to Italian Arctic polar research and exploration. The 2nd floor houses the many items collected in the 1950s by the explorer and scholar Dr Silvio Zavatti during his five polar expeditions, as well as more recent donations and acquisitions. Founded in 1969 in Civitanova Marche, the Polar Museum was acquired by the Municipality of Fermo, and was inaugurated at Villa Vitali in 1993. The first room is dedicated to the polar expeditions of Luigi Amedeo di Savoia, Duke of Abruzzi (1899-1900) and of General Umberto Nobile (1926-28). The following five rooms contain many artefacts of a historical and ethnographic nature, chiefly of Inuit origin. The Museum offers interactive activities, workshops, tours aimed at school children, illustrated visits and the viewing of polar documentary films. Museum facilities include the largest polar library in Italy, with books, news papers and periodicals, as well as a bookshop.[...]

Wish I was here…Le Marche, Italy

Wish I was here…Le Marche, Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

This weeks destination, Le Marche, is on my list of places to explore and I’ve scheduled a visit later this year when I’ll be in Italy for 4 weeks. So expect lots more information on this region of Italy referred to as the next Tuscany (Lonely Planet)!

Why would I go?
Le Marche offers beautiful coast and rustic hinterland with many spectacular ancient cities to be visited (think Urbino (pictured below) Ascoli Piceno and Macerata).
The region also offers some magnificent national parks and reserves including the stunning Monti Sibillini. Mountains make up approximately 31% of the terrain with the remaining 69% being hills with the region being separated from most of the remainder of Italy by the Apennines.
The combination of sea, hills and mountains provides great environments for sources of food too. Fred Plotkin in “Italy for the Gourmet Traveller” (a great read by the way) recommends the region for its superb seafood as well as excellent truffles, mushrooms, meats, olives, grapes and particularly cheeses.
What would I see?
Urbino, one of the highlights of the region
Urbino is just one of the highlights of Le Marche and is one of the best preserved and spectacular of the Italian hill towns. The entire city is walled so you will need to drop your car in one of the many car parks provided. Highlights of the town include the Palazzo Ducale, the Duomo and the Oratorio di San Giovanni Battista.
Other highlights of any visit to Le Marche include (extract below from Marche Voyager):
The provincial capital of Ascoli Piceno lies at the southern end of Le Marche. This beguiling old town is well worth at least an overnight stay. Its travertine-paved main square is one of the most beautiful in Italy.
The administrative capital of Le Marche is Ancona, a city with less obvious attractions for the tourist. Give it time, however, and you may find you enjoy the salty charm of this bustling sea port. It’s also one of Italy’s principal ferry ports with boats to Croatia, Greece and Turkey.
Another of the region’s provincial capitals, Pesaro is both an appealing seaside resort and a thriving commercial town. Good shops, fine beaches and great fish.
Another of the region’s main centres is Macerata, a dignified town, famous for its annual outdoor opera festival and capital of the province of Macerata.
The alluring hilltown of Fermo is the capital of the recently-created province of Fermo and boasts a fine historic centre and outstanding main square.
Many of the smaller inland towns are also well worth visiting and most can make a good base for touring. These include , Cagli, Camerino, Cingoli, Jesi, Offida, Recanati and Sarnano.
And remember to find time to enjoy the vineyards and wine of the Le Marche region too!
