Sabina is 49 years old.I have a degree in Literature and Archaeology from Naples and live for several years in the Marche, Grottammare (AP), the Pearl of the Riviera.
Buongiorno a tutti! Well it's been a very mixed couple of weeks here. Generally I thoroughly recommend being an ex-pat. Living abroad and learning a different language and about a different culture is eye-opening. Every day is exciting because there's always something new, something weird on the TV, a strange festival you've never heard of…
I think that about sums up the last couple of weeks here. I hope you’ve all had good weekends! I’ll leave you with a photo I took on the mountain above the Garulla Rifugio last week…
Ascoli Piceno is the largest town in the general area of Rotella. It’s beautiful and has lots of cultural sites, but Italians back in London told me to bring a deck of cards because “not a lot happens in Ascoli”.

Sand or rocks? Whatever your preference, the Conero Riviera offers the possibility to choose the best match for your taste both for a quiet and relaxing
The Conero Area has the most interesting coastline of the Region Marche, elsewhere more simple, clear waters and expansive beaches with white rocks or sand of different graininess, making it the perfect spot to enjoy your leisure time.
We are now almost two and a half years into the process of acclimating ourselves into this fascinating place. We are still in a phase of transition that is beginning to feel comfortable with the familiar but also realizing we have along way to go before we are true Ascolani. There is still the language issue and more on that in a moment. But I’m encouraged, I feel I’m better anticipating habitual reactions of Italians and a little less likely to be going against the grain. [...]
This is what most of the expats in Italy think about bureaucracy: "Dealing with Italian bureaucracy is a mixture of willful helplessness alternated with disarming, charming flexibility."
In 1985, during the consolidation of a building in the Matelica old town center, the builders found in the masonry a strange “ball” of light marble, with a diameter of 29.2 cm., with obvious geometric incisions on the surface. The ball was taken in the eclectic Piersanti Museum where it is still kept. [...]
Read about the mysterious Matelica's ball, a sort of refined solar calendar dated back to the V-VI century BC perhaps with Greek origin used by an ancient astronomer, a priest of certain god in a temple.
The next National Festival of La Befana – one of the most fun and unique celebrations you would ever experience! A truly Italian tradition enjoyed by children and adults as thousands of Italians pop in from all corners of the country for this 5-day event. [...]
Only in Italy do the witches bring gifts to children. That’s La Befana, a broom-flying, kindly witch who effectively takes over from Santa–in Italy, “Babbo Natale”—about two weeks after Christmas on Epiphany to deliver gifts to the good, and ash to the bad. Though the witch has her roots in the pre-Christian pagan tradition, she features in some tellings of the Christmas story in Italy — as an old woman who refuses to give the Wise Men directions to Bethlehem because she is too busy cleaning, and is forced to ride a broomstick for eternity as a result. The town of Le Marche, in northwestern Italy, celebrates her coming every January. [source]

What a surprise one morning this week to wake up to the first snow of the winter! Admittedly there was not a great deal, a fine blanket covering the garden and trees, but still, a sure sign of what is undoubtedly to come. Temperatures of below freezing are in stark contrast to the beautifully sunny and incredibly mild weather that we have enjoyed throughout most of October and November. [...]
For many of us in Le Marche, snow is synonymous with Christmas. Most of the songs we pleasantly listen at the midnight mass, talk about snow, it's white and flakes. Bing Crosby famously dreamt of it, while movies, advent calendars and Christmas cards are all decorated with snow-filled scenes of a White Christmas. Snow in Le Marche is finally arrived and it is really welcome until stays a bit up on the mountains.

Since we love sustainable and immersive travel, we think that’s always a plus!

It was Jennifer and Shawn’s dream to get married in Petritoli, a charming hilltop town in the Marche region of Italy opposite Florence and Rome. They fell in love with Petritoli on a visit there, and decided it was the perfect place for their wedding- luckily Jennifer is a wedding planner herself which made organising the celebration so far from their home in Canada easier. [...]
Petritoli is an amazing place to get married! Perched up high on the hills, with cobbled streets, flaking painted shutters, middle aged buildings telling stories of a fortified town, the clock tower presiding over the town, standing, with 150 steps to the top, as a symbol of fertility, not to mention the breathtaking distant views to the Adriatic Sea.
The wedding was so special, the ceremony took place inside the theatre, with its stunning painted ceiling. The bride and groom then strolled up through the town admired by delighted locals. The celebrations proceeded on the stunning Piazza. Guests enjoyed sparkle wines and antipasti in the early evening sun, then a long and delicious meal under a cupola of stars. The dances took place underneath the clock tower in a magical atmophere.

The origins of Urbino are very old. The name “Urvinum” probably comes from the Latin word “urvus” (“Urvum” is the curved handle of the plow). The city is very well preserved and it represents the high point of Renaissance art and architecture, harmoniously adapted to its environment and its Medieval past, so that it is a wonderful and unique place. During its short cultural supremacy, the city attracted some of the most distinguished scholars and artists of the Renaissance, who created a consistent urban complex that influenced cultural development of the rest of Europe. [...]
