Domus of the Myth, Sant'Angelo in Vado, Le Marche - Italy

Domus of the Myth, Sant'Angelo in Vado, Le Marche - Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Domus, dated 1st century a.C., is in “Campo della Pieve” that is in Sant’Angelo in Vado (25 Km far from Urbino). It is a Domus of 1000 meters squares with many rooms every one decorated with an elaborate series of two coloured mosaics and polychrome mosaics and everyone is different from the other one. 
The Domus of the Myth is one of the greatest discoveries of this last fifty years for the Central Italy and the Domus is baptized of the Myth because mostly mosaics represent classical mythological figures.
Every mosaic is well preserved and the high quality and the wonderful decorations show a very refined, cultured commission and very specialized workers in mosaic.
There you can admire really fine figures such as: Neptune with his wife Amphitrite on his special carriage “the Triumph Carriage”, Baccus and Medusa.
And then the “Triclinium” enriched with a Fishing Hunting: a moray bites a polyp and the polyp catches a lobster and all around this figure there are forty different decorated medallions and many geometrical themes in black and white.

Le Marche and the "Borghi Autentici d'Italia" Association

Le Marche and the "Borghi Autentici d'Italia" Association | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Borghi Autentici is a network of Italian Territories whose protagonists are communities of citizens, of local administrators, of local traders.
At moment the beautiful Marche Region is represented by two different towns with the same approach to the future.
Montedinove in the province of Ascoli Piceno and Sant'Angelo in Vado in the Province of Pesaro Urbino don’t complain about their social problems or economic decline but, aware of their possibilities and resources, want to detect new chances. Montedinove can count on the territory resources offered by a beautiful historical hilltop town and by the Mela Rosa, the tasty pink apple mentioned by Plinius the Elder. Sant'Angelo in Vado, the ancient "Tifernum Metaurense", crossed by the River Metaurus, is also very famous for the Tuber Magnum Pico, the rare white truffle and every October takes place the white truffle fair that attracts experts and tourists from all over the world.
These two lovely towns belong to that part of Italy that wants to succeed against the horrible word CRISI.
Borghi Autentici is an Association that creates an operative network between Small towns and Villages working on a common path – often far from being easy – of continuous improvement of the urban structure, of the social services, of the social, cultural and environmental context. It’s a small part of Italy that finds its strategic reasons in a renewed effort of permanence and development in identity, in the scenery, in arts and crafts, in their lifestyle, in the story and in local traditions.
This is a reality that considers the local community as a key issue of its development plan. The community is seen as a place, a human and cultural context synonymous of good living, authentic taste, creative know-how and slow social dimension; the Community that discloses itself to the outside world.
