Shopping in Le Marche, it's a such an easy task

From the Marche, all over the world. This is true not only for food and wine, but for the furniture industry and the household appliance industry; for the boat-building sector and the footwear industry; for musical instruments from Castelfidardo and the paper mills in Fabriano. Arguably, no region has been , and continues to be , as successful as the Marche in exporting products made in Italy.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Le Marche is renowned for its industry but luckily it is not the polluting heavy industry that marks the landscape. It excels in furniture making, machinery for many sectors, manufacture, boat building etc – all to the highest standards.
Le Marche offers an esteemed fashion industry, is a land of ancient traditions and crafts manufacturing, here, are located some of the major brands famous all over the world. A trip to the Marche, may also be an opportunity to switch from the classic historical and cultural tour to another exquisitely fashionable, in search of numerous outlets and factory stores. The shoe making district of Fermo and Macerata situated on the border of the provinces of the same name, represents the largest concentration of footwear producing companies in Italy.
Le Marche has a rich cuisine, made of great traditional and tasty food in between the coast and the mountain. A cuisine made by excellent products GMO-free, mostly organic or from sustainable techniques, supplied daily by skilled farmers, fishermen and harvesters: from tender shrimp to Conero muscles and from the white truffles of Acqualagna to ascolana olives stuffed with meat or fish, one of the most popular of the ascolana-style fried dishes.
The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers. There are 5 DOCG wines and 16 DOC wines. Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.

Italy brings us many amazing fashion brands, and there is one region in particular where numerous shoe makers come from – coastal Marche region – and more specifically Fermo and Macerata districts, not far from Rome.

Amandola is a lovely village with great access to the mountains, Bar Belli is a superb place to eat homemade cakes and watch the world traverse the cobbled piazza. Try the tennis club for great courts and value lessons.
