Olive pruning techniques vary all over the world and even throughout Italy itself. A research team at the University of Ancona in Le Marche has been developing for over ten years a new approach to pruning ... Traditionally olives have been pruned to the shape of a red wine glass with a fringe all the way around, lopped flat across the top and opened out to let the all important sun into the middle of the tree. New thinking has it that the tree should be allowed to grow to its’ optimum height, forming a shape more like an ice cream cone. [...]
During the restoration of the church of S. Francesco at Borgo di Arquata del Tronto , in the province of Ascoli Piceno , in 1980 is found a double urn of gilded wood , hidden in the niche of an altar . Inside there is a large sheet folded and a scroll. On the sheet is visible footprint front and back of a human body , and the center is the word ‘ EXTRACTVM AB ORIGINAL ‘ (extract from the original, which is sanctified by direct contact with the real relic). It is a copy in 1:1 scale of the Shroud of Turin , the most valuable and controversial relic of Christendom. Copying Arquata accurately reproduces the image and stains on the Shroud of Turin: in addition to the double human footprint are noticed reddish spots in the side , feet and head , the drawings that recall the patches corresponding to burns inflicted to the Shroud Turin by fire in 1532 , and even water stains. However , there is one important difference between the Shroud of Arquata and the other 50 copies of the Turin Shroud survived to our times [...]

When I visited the little fortified town of Gradara I had as well a look into the churches. I always go into churches as they give often peaceful moments, a shelter when it’s cold or too hot and they have mainly amazing artworks. In this case I happened in the main church of Gradara: the church San Giovanni Battista (Saint John the Baptist). [...]

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.

Also the company making those famous Tod’s loafers and Hogan shoes is located in the Marche region. [...]
As a lead up to the release, SELVANS have posted a video teaser of the title track “Clangores Plenilunio”, a song that could almost be called a duet as the vocals are handled party by Jonny and partly by Selvans Haruspex, who explains the concept behind the song: “Jonny and I worked closely together when it came to deciding on the lyrical theme for the song, and we did a lot of research on the Sibyl’s Cave, which, legend has it, is located in the Marche region of central Italy. The fascination of this place, and the legends associated with it, was a great inspiration to us and we had planned to use the folklore surrounding it in several SELVANS pieces in the future. Although Jonny died before he could finish parts of the text, I completed them, and whilst “Clangores Plenilunio” is the first piece that features the Appennine Sybil, it definitely won’t be the last”.
Selvans is a new band formed by the former members of the disbanded Italian pagan/black metal group DRAUGR — Selvans Haruspex (Ursus Arctos of DRAUGR) on vocals, keyboards, and traditional instruments;Sethlans Fulguriator (Mors of DRAUGR) on guitars, and DRAUGR co-founder Stolas on bass.
