Curated by Mariano Pallottini
Recently, large publications that send writers out to a particular foreign destination for a week every year or two have taken to the practice of calling Le Marche "the next Tuscany." It is hard to tell what they mean. It's not crowded with English speakers, the landscape is very different, the shutters are mostly brown instead of green. The food, the pasta shapes--all different. Even the sea is different. [...]

Anna Maria Alberghetti: the beautiful actress from Pesaro, Le Marche
Beloved of the chattering classes every summer, much of Italy is often overlooked as passé by serious travellers, but why not try a new region which offers beautiful beaches, picturesque countryside and exquisite art, but without the crowds. Halfway up the eastern side of Italy's boot, Le Marche offers a relatively new idea in Italy, British-style bed & breakfast, with low rates from around €69 a night for a double. With 14th century villages set in beautiful countryside and stunning beaches such as Due Sorelle (considered one of Italy's best), this is a must-see destination.
Medieval Urbino has some of the finest examples of renaissance art in its Palazzo Ducale, and there are modern art treasures to be found in contemporary galleries such as Il Conventino in tiny Monteciccardo, and unexpected but wonderful examples of modern sculpture, such as that inside a 15th-century tower in Cagli.
Located in Italy's seldom visited Marche region, Urbino is a true gem; one of the capitals of Renaissance. Here Federico da Montefeltro, the most skilled warlord of his time and duke of the city from 1444 to 1482, commissioned a magnificent Palace: a wonder of early Renaissance architecture, today symbol of the city in the world.

Central Italy, where Amandola is located in the Sibillini Mountains, has the most expertise cultivating truffles. Apparently, the Marche region of the Sibillini Mountains was the first place where truffles were cultivated in Italy, beginning in 1932 and then blossoming in the 1950s and 1960s thanks to Mannozzi Torini, a regional inspector belonging to the Corpo Forestrale dello Stato, according to La Tartuficoltura nelle Marche (ASSAM 2012).

Earthquakes do not kill, the homes do it so, where and how we build them. Upon the Marche's Apennines, the land has pretended so much, but much is capable to give.
Their unusual and unique shape, is due to the long and slow wind erosion over a period of millions of years and during the many stages of freezing and thawing of the mountain. Lame Rosse is characterized by gravel held together by clay, thanks to erosion of atmospheric phenomena has given rise to these pinnacles and figures of all kind.

It is easy to understand the love affair between Italy and Lebanon, writes Michael Karam.

All roads lead to Rome, in our case “wine”. Our insatiable quest and love for Italy and all things Italian leads us off the beaten path to the land of Italy’s noble native white varietal Verdicchio – Le Marche. Pronounced ‘Lay Markay’, roughly the size of Delaware, this Italian province aptly translates “the borderlands”, hugs the Adriatic Sea to the east with a 111-mile-long coastline and stretches of unspoiled countryside extend into Emilia-Romagna to the north, Tuscany and Umbria to the West, and Abruzzo and Lazio to the south.

Ascoli Piceno, at the southern edge of Le Marche, is a gorgeous town of medieval monuments and Renaissance splendor, which is largely overlooked—but it shouldn’t be. It offers a high quality of life in its beautiful historic center, where everything you need is at your doorstep, and where events and exhibits regularly liven up the town.
The locals like to point out that Ascoli Piceno is older than Rome. They’re rightfully proud of their city and their lifestyle. It is beautiful and relaxed, and there is always something to do: an art exhibit among Roman ruins, cinema under the stars in a 15th-century cloister, concerts in the piazza, and a twice-weekly market that rolls into town. The velvet-clad opera theater is an opulent venue, while homey food festivals provide inexpensive (and delicious) fun.
In addition to the beauty and quality of life, Ascoli Piceno retains its small local shops, where fresh produce, locally raised meat, and regional products can be procured at good prices. Restaurants are plentiful, with excellent fare that won’t break the bank either. You can dine out and enjoy a bountiful meal for about $20 per person.
International Living Correspondent Valerie Fortney Schneider says that Ascoli Pisceno “offers the classic Italian lifestyle of good food, great wine, and cultural attractions for around $2,000 a month for a couple, and that’s including rent.”
Apartments in the historic center can be rented for around $530 a month. If you are looking to buy, you can expect to pay $95,000 and $165,000 for a historic center apartment, while a two-bedroom townhouse will set you back about $184,000.

The QUINTANA is a reenactment of a medieval pageant that the people of Ascoli Piceno have been doing for sixty years. The pageant centers around competitions between the six communities that make up the core of Ascoli Piceno called Sestieri. The Sestieri field teams and individuals to compete in medieval-style events such as choreographed flag tossing Sbandieratori, archery, and the highlight event where mounted horsemen, the Cavalieri or knights, engage a target with a lance in a form of joist or giostra. Each sestieri also fields a musical corp consisting of various drums and straight trumpets or clarions. The Quintana begins in mid July and culminates in the first weekend of August. [...]

VALLUGOLA BEACH, LE MARCHE, ITALY
Katie McKnoulty of The Travelling Light
Vallugola beach is a local's secret in the decidedly un-touristy region of Le Marche. In summer it teems with Italians on their summer holiday or locals escaping the heat with a dip. The beach is covered in big white pebbles and marble rocks line the shore. you can catch local nonnos and nonnas basking in the
sun or cooling off in the clear, blue water. Come during the day with your camera, late afternoon for softer lighting, to capture all the local characters sunbathing under big orange umbrellas and the sail boats floating by. There’s two amazing seafood restaurants right on the beach for an afternoon meal or aperol spritz.
Emperor Augustus boasted that he found a city of brick and left a city of marble, and quite a lot of the marble came from around here; so much of Ascoli’s city centre still consists of this luminous, ethereal white stone and at night-time the effect is dramatic. Today Ascoli Piceno is a low-key, provincial town with a fairly small centre, but one that had fascinated this Italoholic for long enough that I was finally roused into making the journey and seeing for myself. I am happy to report that the effort was well rewarded. [...]
