Sidney Seymour Smith an escaped POW from a local camp in the region of Le Marche Italy, was remembered at the unveiling of a monument to his memory and to all escaping POW's in Italy and to those brave Italians that helped shelter, feed and cloth them. [
Sidney was thirty four years old when he was recaptured on a quite road here and shot in cold blood by a member of the SS in 1944. It was recognized as a war crime after an inquiry and the evidence suggests that the SS captain emptied a full magazine from a machine gun at point blank range into Sidney, killing him instantly.

Hill towns of Le Marche, Italy - The Englishwoman visits Sirolo and meets another blogger
Quaint towns such as Numana and Sirolo cling to the hillside, and the expansive beach at Mezzavalle di Portonovo is well worth the 15-minute trek when visiting the beautiful Conero peninsula. Last year we discovered a path to the rocks where fishermen’s caves are hewn into the cliff – most are abandoned but some have been reclaimed by boating aficionados. Scramble along the shore, chat with the locals and watch them dive from the rocks into the crystal-clear pools.
Today I’ll bring you to discover the Valdaso, a beautiful valley in Le Marche Region with ancient villages and a charming rural
landscape. We’ll discover this territory through two travel itineraries from the Sea to the Mountains and vice versa.

Ken Albala, were taken on a culinary journey through a four-course, twenty-dish, meal and wine pairing. Albala, now Director of Food Studies at the University of the Pacific, welcomed us warmly into his kitchen as if we were royalty, attending a banquet fit for an Italian duchess. In fact, he lifted all the recipes from Dello Scalco, written by Giovanni Battista Rossetti, a book commemorating dishes served at a marriage banquet in Urbino, Italy, in 1584. [...]
Who has never heard, at least once, about the unfortunate love of Paolo and Francesca and about its tragic end? Their love story, which has become famous all around the world thanks to great poets and historiographers, took place in Gradara in the remote 1289… Small town of antique origins and with a typical hilly landscape of the countryside around Pesaro, Gradara still shows its history of roman settlement and of centuries-old Seigniory.

A highly atmospheric region, Marche is a romantic and picturesque location for your Italian wedding. With its spectacular coastline, scenic interior and many historic towns and villages, Marche is typically Italian and offers everything the country is famous for.
From beaches to mountains and towns to countryside, Marche is a both dramatic and picturesque. The region will provide a lovely backdrop to your wedding in Italy.
There is a corner of the Marche, in the south and along the Via Salaria, which is wedged between three regions: Umbria, Lazio and Abruzzo, but also between two mountain ranges and related national parks: the Monti Sibillini National Park and Gran Sasso Laga Park.
It’s a remote place and maybe for that is full of stories and mysteries. An ancient crossroads of cultures and events. [...]
Blu’s impact on the street art scene can be traced all over the world. His style is instantly recognizable and is often discussed in conjunction with Banksy. This month, however, he’s really outdone himself with his new work in his favourite haunt Campobasso. Here’s more.

... We had been driving for about twenty minutes when a big sign along the side of the road caught our attention. It read: "Have you ever been in the belly of the Earth?" It was exactly the invitation we were looking for! We followed the road for 38 kilometers leaving the marine scenery behind us. As we passed through the countryside the sight of the mountains in front us grew closer and closer. Fields of tulips and tender grass glittered under the sun.
"Welcome to the Frasassi caves!" [...]
Goodness me where do I start? To say that Ascoli was a surprise would be a massive understatement. This town has nothing on the World Heritage list, it doesn’t have a recognised world renowned museum or artefact, but it is a magical mystical joyous place that blew me away. Apparently the area has been settled since the 6th century BC and was eventually occupied by the Romans, and judging by the elegant buildings that line the main piazza’s there was money in the town in the 16th and 17th centuries. We got there by travelling by train from Pesaro to Ancona, and then from Ancona to Ascoli. The train station is in the new part of town, with the historical centre a short walk across the Ponte Maggiiore. The old town is bordered on either side by two rivers, the Torrente Castellano which flows into the Fiume Tronto. Both of these run in steep ravines which look quite dramatic from various vantage points on bridges or roads. You can also see small sheds and patches of vegetable gardens strung precariously along vaguely flat sections of the ravines. The Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Arringo are the main open spaces lined with elegant buildings, but there are many more. The Piazza Roma (I think) seemed to have a permanent open market in place.

Soon we will be coming up on the second anniversary of arriving and beginning to settle into Ascoli Piceno in the Marche Region of Central Italy. Some mechanism we acknowledge we don’t yet completely understand determined how our instincts lead us to choose to settle into the historic central district in this Italian Provincial Capital town. By some very fortunate chain of events, we seemed to have opened ourselves up to being more trusting of our instincts and feelings in guiding the all important decision on where we were going to settle in becoming expatriates. However we came to it, the decision to settle in the center of Ascoli Piceno has turned out to be absolutely correct for us. [...]
Friday is the rally’s longest day 13 hours in the car on the way to Rome via San Marino, Senigallia, Macerata, Ascoli Piceno, Teramo and Rieti. We had a good day yesterday and are leading our little battle inside Team Jaguar but we are still way off the top 100 place we thought we might manage. I’ll keep doing what I can to keep you up to date on Twitter and Instagram, but if that rain comes, the pictures won’t be so pretty. [...]
A flight at dawn, low, over the Sibillini Mountains of Italy. Now this was a treat for an early morning indeed. Those of you that know me will be quite aware I enjoy getting up and out early. This was one of those days where that feeling was made even more special. [...]
