4. Gabicce Mare, Le Marche
Anne Hanley, author of our Venice guide, advises heading south from La Serenissima to Gabicce Mare. "Italy's Adriatic coast is, on the whole, a very local place: a summer playground for Italian families," she says. "Ranks of colour-coded umbrellas mark the progression from one beach concession to another along interminable stretches of flat white sand; nondescript developments of high-rise hotels occupy the flat shoreline, overlooked by more ancient towns in the hillier hinterland.
Intrepid visitors wanting more remote sands away from the beach umbrellas come to Gabicce Mare
"Gabicce Mare is a delightful exception to this rule. Intrepid visitors wanting more remote sands away from the beach umbrellas, can trek to secluded coves below the nearby hamlets of Fiorenzuola di Focara and Casteldimezzo: it's an abrupt switch from order to wilderness."
The Telegraph dedicates an article to 21 places in Italy that worth a visit and, surprise (but not that much) Gabicce Mare is among really beautiful Secret Italian Destinations

On the border between Umbria and Marche, 75 miles north-east of Rome, the Sibillini mountains are in the heart of Italy both geographically and culturally. The rounded summits are home to lots of rare wildlife (grey wolf and Marsican brown bear among others) plus antique hill villages and the medieval town of Norcia, a gastronomic heaven where tartufo nero (black truffle), wild mushrooms, and celebrated cured meats can be sampled, along with a mountain range of cheeses. This six-day circular walk takes you through the best of the sights both natural and human, with plenty of chance to explore historical and culinary traditions. Most of the range undulates between 2,000 and 2,500 metres but there are some steep, rugged sections, too.
• Seven-night self-guided walk with Inntravel runs May-October, £798 including luggage transfers and most meals (return transfers from Rome £74 extra)

As in any town, anywhere, there’s more to see in relatively small Cagli than the brief time we had, since we’d discovered it by chance, and without any advanced study. The gem of the city that we saw is another of Martini’s works, the surviving portion of a now-demolished fortress. It’s named the Tower of the Fortress, Rocca Torrione. [...]

The title of the Italian province of Le Marche literally means “the borderlands”, a neutral region neighbouring more important places. This makes a lot of sense when you consider that Tuscany lies to the north and Umbria to the south. Next to these titans of the tourist trade so beloved of the inglese, and hemmed in by the mountains and the sea on either side, you might call Le Marche something of a poor relation, rarely visited.

“I was very fortunate to have traveled to Ascoli Piceno in the Marche region of Italy. In this amazing town, you will find people walking with paper cones similar to snow-cones but filled with delicious stuffed, fried olives. Olivi Ascolani are filled with sausage, gently coated and fried. [...]"
Lisa Cherubini Diletti This is a far cry from authentic olive all'ascolana. My husband is from Ascoli Piceno and has made olive all'ascolana many many times. i have also eaten them in Ascoli multiple times. Whle this may be chef berman's version , it is a far cry from the real thing. Not only are these olives not stuffed with "sausage" as he claims they are, no recipe adds thyme, fennel, sage or red pepper flakes . And they are never called "olivi ascolani". The recipe does not even explain rhat you must carve the olive as though you were peeling an apple. As the true recipe sure is revisited here -best to call it something else.

[...] High up in the mountain top village of Cupi, however, a little revolution is under way. The villages of Monte Sibillini are beginning to slowly come back to life.
Beniamino Ciammarucchi is stirring up a cauldron of boiling sheep’s milk in a brand new stainless steel kitchen. He son Arcangelo is delivering huge milk churns that are being loaded into the dairy.
In the late 1980s Beniamino left his home village to settle in down in the valleys of Le Marche. Summers spent on the high pastures and wintering his flock in the low lying fields near Rome was no longer economical and new regulations brought an end to the traditional ways of producing cheese.
After generations of sheep herding and cheese making his son Arcangelo was forced to take a job in a factory producing cookers and fridges. He longed for the shepherd life that was in his blood and decided that he would return to Cupi and set up a modern dairy producing top class artisan cheese.
It was a lucky move. He secured a bank loan just before the crash of 2008 and in its wake the factory where had had been working closed down. “Everyone thought he was crazy,” laughs his father. “They thought Cupi was the end of the world but the irony is all his friends lost their jobs and many of them are still unemployed. Look at Arcangelo he built a business.” [...]
