Travel to Le Marche with the Atlanta based Storico Fresco Pasta

Travel to Le Marche with the Atlanta based Storico Fresco Pasta | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Storico Fresco's founder, Mike Patrick, began exploring the Italian countryside three years ago, hoping to find some of the world's most extraordinary pasta recipes. He found them by working in small pasta shops, in monasteries, in the homes of Italian grandmothers and on traditional Italian farms.

During these journeys, the chef and sommelier not only learned a lot about Old World cooking, he discovered that Italy and its pasta have a problem. These extraordinary recipes are disappearing.

Inspired to preserve these endangered recipes and the traditional ways of making them, Mike founded Storico Fresco Pasta (Storico Fresco means "fresh history" in Italian) to create a line of pastas which are faithful, handmade reproductions of these great, Italian foods.

 

Storico Fresco has partnered with "Four Seasons Natura e Cultura", an Italy-based tour operator promoting responsible and sustainable tourism. They specialize in walking holidays, cultural tours and archaeological itineraries for groups and for individual travelers.

 

Travel in March 15-24 to discover the Flavors of Le Marche

Although Marche is one of the smallest regions in Italy, its menus and kitchens show off many rich examples of Italian cooking. Hard-to-find foods made with ancient recipes have evolved over centuries at local monasteries settled in the hillscapes between Rome and the Adriatic Sea. The food there is also known as "the holy food of Cucina dello Spirito," and you'll learn firsthand how the monks and nuns use it to feed the both the body and the soul.

The food in central Marche is called "the food of the countrymen" and most of the recipes there are based on legumes, olive oil and ricotta cheese. And the beautiful lands of the Duke of Urbino is where you'll discover the ancient pasta lumachelle, and see where one of the world's best truffles has been hunted since the times of the Romans.

Retire in Le Marche, Italy I was so amazed on my first trip to Italy in my early twenties to discover that the buildings I had studied were surrounded by others, equally as beautiful, that I began to sketch frantically, wanting to document everything I saw. I came back again and again, drawing and learning to paint in watercolor and then on family holidays with my two small sons, but it was sixteen years after my first trip here that I finally found the courage to move here. At the age of forty I started learning Italian, chose a house in a town where we knew an Italian family, and we moved. [...]

Blessed Conrad of Ascoli, a great Saint died too soon

Blessed Conrad of Ascoli, a great Saint died too soon | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Friar Minor and missionary, born at Ascoli Piceno in the Marche in 1234; died there, 19 April, 1289.

He entered the Order of Friars Minor at Ascoli together with his townsman and lifelong friend, Girolamo d’Ascoli, afterwards minister general, and later pope under the title of Nicholas IV. Having completed his studies at Perugia, Conrad was sent to Rome to teach theology. Later he obtained permission to go to Africa, where he preached with much fruit through the different provinces of Libya and worked numerous miracles. He was recalled from Africa to go on a mission to the King of France, then at war with Spain, and subsequently he became lector of theology at Paris.
When not engaged in teaching, Conrad preached to the people or ministered to the sick in hospitals. In 1288 he was summoned to Rome by the new pope, Nicholas IV, who wished to make him cardinal, but Conrad died on the way after reaching his native city, being then fifty-five years of age.
The people of Ascoli erected a splendid tomb over the remains of Blessed Conrad. In 1371, when his body was removed to the new church of the Franciscans, it was found incorrupt and gave forth a sweet odour. Pius VI approved the cultus of Blessed Conrad. His feast is kept in the Order of Friars Minor on 19 April. [...]

Festival of the Sea Snails | Sagra dei Garagoi

Festival of the Sea Snails | Sagra dei Garagoi | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Scheduled for the weekend of April 25 through 27, 2014, is the Sagra dei Garagoi (“Festival of the Sea Snails”).
It takes place in Marotta, Italy, near Pesaro in the coastal region of La Marche. The first festival was organized by the fishermen of Marotta (called marottesi) in 1948.
Garagoi or sea snails are cooked in tomato sauce with plenty of peppers and served with locally made wines such as Bianchello or Verdicchio from the Colli Pesaresi (the locals say the best way to eat them is to take a sip of wine for every seven snails).
The sea snails are an edible mollusk that lives about eight miles from the coast in a stretch of sea that goes from Rimini to Ancona.
It’s not easy to prepare garagoi. Four or five days before the festival, they’re caught and brought ashore. They’re washed, washed and washed again in seawater and then laid in wooden boxes so whatever sand and mud is left leaches out. [...]

Driving In Le Marche

Driving In Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

If you are holidaying in Le Marche, a car is a must to explore those out of the way hill-top towns and villages.  Given the geography of the region, roads in Le Marche can be a bit winding and bumpy, and driving through those beautiful hill-top towns and villages can really challenge your manoeuvring and navigational skills. While driving through the mountains is a great scenic experience, the roads can be a little harrowing, and coastal tracks really only have room for one way traffic.

So, in order to make sure you enjoy driving in Le Marche, here are a few things worth knowing:

San Anastasio in Roncosambaccio | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

San Anastasio church, in Roncosambaccio, a little village on the hills between Pesaro and Fano. The church, entitled to San Vincenzo and Anastasio, dates back to the 10th century. I can tell you at least one good reason why you should go there if you ever get the chance: wildflowers in recycled jars placed under holy images.
There is nothing artificial in that. A simple action. A humble flower in a humble vase. Maybe this is what we all should be: humble flowers in humble jars. [...]

Ancona: The Chocolate Province of Le Marche

Ancona: The Chocolate Province of Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Province of Ancona in Le Marche is my favourite province for chocolate production because of its fabulous chocolate producers.

What is the difference between a chocolate bar you find in a supermarket and chocolate made by a fine chocolatier?

Four major types of cacao are cultivated: Criollo, Forastero, Trinitario and Nacional.

The Criollo tree originates in Mexico and Central America and gives very high quality cacao beans and is mainly cultivated in South and Central America.

The Forastero is very much cultivated in Africa, but also in Central and South America and constitutes approximately 80% of world production of cacao.

The Trinitario is a crossbreed between the Forastero and Criollo, and is mainly cultivated in Central and South America and Asia. It has its aroma from Criollo and its resistance to disease and its productivity from Forastero.

The Nacional is mostly cultivated in South America west of the Andes. It is prone to disease and difficult to grow, but has an excellent aroma.

The flavor of the cacao beans is not only dependent on the variety, but also on the soil, temperature, sunshine and rainfall. It is now possible to buy chocolates made with cacao beans from one single region and thus compare the aromas; these chocolates are often called specialty chocolates, in contrast to ordinary chocolate which are made with mostly cheap cacao beans from several regions and with more than one cacao variety.

How do you determine if a bar is good?

To determine if a tablet is of excellent quality, you have to look at the percentage of cocoa and establish its provenance. A preparation with Criollo or Trinitario, will always be greater than one with only Forastero, even if this was achieved with very high percentage of raw material. Then a tablet with a percentage of 72% Criollo or Trinitario cocoa, will inevitably be better than one with only 85% of Forastero. It should not be too dark but a nice brown with shades of red mahogany possible. It should not be bitter, roasted sign of bad or poor quality of cocoa.

Crescia di Pasqua: Le Marche savoury Easter bread

Crescia di Pasqua: Le Marche savoury Easter bread | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Crescia di Pasqua, Pizza di Paqua, Crescia Brusca, Torta al Formaggio, Crescia al formaggio, Crescia Ricresciuta, Caciata... different names for similar Panettone-shaped Easter breads prepared in Le Marche, Umbria, Abruzzo and Lazio (basically throughout Central Italy except Tuscany, as far as I know).
Here in Northern Le Marche (where it's called Crescia di Pasqua) the tradition is that every family makes an outrageous number of them and then, before Easter, the swapping begins. People used to give one to neighbours, family and friends and, of course were given one by each of them, so every family ended up having to "deal" with, basically, the same outrageous number of cresce that they made in first place... that is, too many!

Le Marche With Kids: Castello della Rancia, Tolentino

Le Marche With Kids: Castello della Rancia, Tolentino | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

This castle is strange, very strange: it has everything a castle should have, drawbridge, battlements atop the towers, the keep, the well, the torture chamber .. but it is not built at the top of a mountain, but in the plain! And how could they defend themselves? The Rancia castle owes its name to the fact that perhaps initially was built to house a “grange”, a grain storage, and was used by the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of Fiastra. Rodolfo da Varano II between 1353 and 1357 turned it into a fortress but in 1581 it underwent a new transformation and became a farmhouse used as the hospitality of pilgrims.
Today, the castle can be visited in every corner, hosts concerts and exhibitions and is very easy to get along the SS 16 towards Tolentino. The only impediments are maybe many stairs! Going up and down to gain access to the towers rather than large rooms where meals are served two museums can to deter families with very young children.
Inside, two archaeological museums are very interesting and, for the happiness of the youngest, in some room you can find models reproducing the battles fought in the neighborhood as the famous battle of Tolentino in 1815 between the troops of Murat and Austrian troops.

HOT TO GET THERE: Follow route SS 77 direction of Tolentino, province of Macerata.

The picturesque coasts attract sun and beach loving tourists.
Go inland and the beautiful paved squares and elegant towns are yours for the enjoying. A lack of inland tourism leads to reasonable prices and unspoilt expanses of Natural Park. [...]

A group of eight talented photographers and bloggers from all over Europe were invited to Marche, Italy for a four-day photography trip of the local area.  The aim to was help raise the profile of tourism in the region. Our days were packed solid from morning to night visiting local towns, learning about the culture and history and meeting local people from the region.

Marche is one of the lesser-known of Italy’s 20 regions. It’s located on the eastern seaboard on the Adriatic coast, with Tuscany and Umbria to the west and San Marino to the north. It is very much an agricultural area and as we drove through the countryside and over the rolling hills, the beauty in the simple landscape really stood out for me. It was breathtaking and seemingly untouched by modern buildings and construction. [...]

Le Marche on Swide Magazine | Italian Easter Traditions

Le Marche on Swide Magazine | Italian Easter Traditions | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
In Italy – like in any Christian Catholic Country – Easter is a National religious Holiday. But apart from Mass and extravagant processions linked to the religious sphere of the holiday there are other traditions to celebrate the festivity: join Swide and discover them.
Mariano Pallottini's insight:

In Pesaro, Marche, each year a game is played, inspired by country traditions: in the past people would prepare hundreds of hardboiled eggs in a basket and they were placed in an S shape. The participant who started first could pick his egg and check its consistency while the others had to take the next. The game today consists in beating one egg against another and to hope it doesn’t break. If it doesn’t, you win all the other broken eggs (!).

Swide suggests a visit to one of the many small towns in Italy , like some towns in Marche, or Liguria which is perfect with this Spring weather.

7 Interesting Facts About the Frasassi Caves

7 Interesting Facts About the Frasassi Caves | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Frasassi Caves are by far one of the most incredible areas of natural beauty I have ever seen in Italy. The dark pools of crystalline water and humongous stalagmites and stalactites are an entirely natural phenomenon, something which only adds to their extraordinary appeal. In a country where your first thought is usually of the food, art, or history, it was a surprise to see something of this nature that also lived up to that fascination and mystique that this country’s more well known destinations are known for. Here few interesting facts:

  1. You could fit the entirety of Milan’s Duomo (the world’s largest Gothic cathedral) inside of the the Ancona Abyss.
  2. Caver Maurizio Montalbini lived in the cave in complete isolation from December 1986 until July 1987.
  3. The Frasassi Caves has been used to conduct experiments in chronobiology.
  4. The temperature inside is around 14 degrees centigrade all year round.
  5. On a cliff above the cave is the Temple of Valadier, which can be reached only by path.
  6. The caves were only actually discovered in 1971 by a group of speleologists from Ancona
  7. It's definitely recommended adding the Frasassi Caves to your itinerary.

Garden Services in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Foreigners who have bought a property in Le Marche are, in general, more interested than locals in "garden" or "landscape maintenance", the art of keeping a landscape healthy, clean, safe and attractive.
These people retired or in holiday, don't have time or the possibility to use their physical exertion or skills, to work as groundskeeper, plantings and harvestings, weeding and fertilizing, lawn caring, operating in driveway and path maintenance, shrub pruning and fencing. Again, some activities are not for all requiring a certain level of expertise, such as swimming pool care, runoff drainage, and irrigation, and other jobs for protecting and improving the topsoil, plants, and garden accessories.
For this reason I want to offer you a list of useful resources and I hope you will help Le Marche to look even better.

The Cultural Highlights of Le Marche - Marche Cultural Holidays | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

From left to right, the band of regions crossing central Italy begins in Tuscany—which hardly needs an introduction. Landlocked Umbria, “Italy's Green Heart”, is sprinkled with forests and olive groves and art towns that have been destinations for tourism and pilgrimage for centuries. Then comes the other one.

Le Marche—“the Marches”—is the least visited of the three, by foreigners at least. But it has a quiet, authentic charm that still seems strangely untouched by mass tourism.

The region has a special place in the cultural history of Italy, too. Great Italian Romantic poet Giacomo Leopardi was born in Recanati in 1798. Bramante, architect of St. Peter's in Rome, came from a village near Urbino. Painters Gentile da Fabriano and Raphael (also from Urbino) were both marchigiani. And an artist from a different era, Argentine footballer Lionel Messi, traces his own family roots to Le Marche (also Recanati).

Civitanova Marche from dawn to dusk

This appealing seaside resort also doubles as a colorful fishing port and historic centre.The most attractive stretch of promenade and beach lies to the south and has attractive planting and a calm air.
About 4 kms inland from the town stands the Medieval hilltop borgo of Civitanova Marche alta, still partly enclosed by its old walls and well worth a stroll - amongst the fine ancient palaces and churches.
Cluentensis Vicus was then called Civitanova Alta, it still preserves its 15th-century walls, along with towers, bulwarks and entrance doors.
From the streets of the ancient Civitanova Alta’s centre, situated on the top of San Marone, visitors may enjoy panoramas ranging from the seacoast to the surrounding hills. Around the central Piazza della Libertà there are many buildings with a remarkable architectural value, such as the former Town Hall, built in the 16th century and characterized by a wide porch. Other examples include the 18th-century church San Paolo, the former church San Francesco (14th century), and the entrance of the 16th-century Palazzo Cesarini. At number 20 of the street bearing his name, the famous writer and poet Annibal Caro was born, famous above all for his translation of the Aeneid.
One of the Marche's earliest and most charming churches, Santa Maria a Piè di Chienti, lies 6km inland along the SS 485. This beautifully preserved Romanesque construction was built in the 9th Century. 
Piazza XX Settembre represents the most important part of Civitanova Marche’s lower part, with its Town Hall built in 1862 by Earls Cesarini Sforza on a 14th-century building. Other important buildings are the rich Municipal Library, and the church San Marone, which still preserves some original 9th-century structures, such as a small double-splay window and fragments of decorated capitals.
