Active free trial in the University of Camerino

Active free trial in the University of Camerino | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The University of Camerino is a university located in Camerino, Italy. The University of Camerino is the best university of Italy among those with fewer than 10,000 students, according to the Guida Censis Repubblica 2011 and 2012 ranking. It claims to have been founded in 1336 and was officially recognized by the Pope in 1727. It is organized into five faculties.

Writer and jurist Cino from Pistoia, living in Marche in the years 1319–21, and in Camerino in the spring of 1321, described the territory as teeming with law schools. Camerino became a center of learning by year 1200, offering degrees in civil law, canonical law, medicine, and literary studies. Upon the request of Gentile III da Varano, Gregory XI issued the papal edict of 29 January 1377, addressed to the municipality and to the people, authorizing Camerino to confer (after appropriate examination) bachelor and doctoral degrees with apostolic authority.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Camerino has been affected by the earthquake but it must not succumb to fear as its ancient and prestigious University.

James Martin let you discover Le Marche at a glance | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

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. [...]

Urbino among the 10 Italian places not to be missed to admire the Genius of the Renaissance | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Urbino
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.

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.

Quintana 2016 Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche

Quintana 2016 Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

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. [...]

Ascoli Piceno in a rich blog post

Ascoli Piceno in a rich blog post | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

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. [...]

Musical chairs and mountain mishaps in the Apennines

Collamato, near beautiful Fabriano in the Marche, crowns a foothill of the Apennines. We went for my stepson’s wedding. In our apartment, attached to the castle walls, a lizard skidded frantically on tiles buckled by the recent earthquake. I helped the old ladies of the village prepare paninis for the reception in the village hall, where the Irish and English taught the Italians to play musical chairs. The language barrier was overcome by smiles and gestures.

We had a week of fun, visiting elegant Urbino one day, the dramatic limestone caves of Sassoferrato another, eating in hilltop restaurants and getting lost in the mountains.

Returning years later to stay with our daughter-in-law’s mother, we were welcomed as Padre di Tom and Mama Due, and plied with wine made from his own grapes by Honorio, the shopkeeper. The two breakages during musical chairs game had been forgiven.

Le Marche visited by Somewhere Slower | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The region of Marche was not one that was ever on our wish list of new regions to visit– Puglia, Piedmont, Liguria and a few others would have definitely come before—but we’re so glad we were introduced to it now. Framed by the sea and the Apennines, the region is slightly reminiscent of Tuscany, dotted with hilltop towns and villages, each more beautiful than the last. However, it is much more mountainous than Tuscany and this time of year, more green. It is also exceptionally quiet and surprisingly inexpensive. [...]

Dolphin Project in Le Marche Region: Area for Care and Protection of Marine Life

Dolphin Project in Le Marche Region: Area for Care and Protection of Marine Life | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Dolphin Project Italia has offered to take the Finland Four. Even their marine life rescue center is not really a dolphin sanctuary, it could become one pretty easily. This is a newly-formed group in the area of Sirolo, Italy. It’s known as “The Pearl of the Adriatic.”
I was there recently to help them find a suitable seaside location in a national park. The location we chose will work fine for the rescue and rehabilitation of aquatic life in the Adriatic Sea. Primarily, dolphins, turtles and seabirds.
There are also about 300 bottlenose dolphins in the area. They live in ten pods with about 30 dolphins in each pod. Sometimes they get into trouble and need help — same with turtles and seabirds. Dolphin Project Italia was set up to deal with this situation. Rehabilitation and release back into the pristine Adriatic Sea.
The location chosen for the center could also accommodate four or five captive dolphins. It wasn’t set up as a “retirement center” but it could accommodate the Finland Four. Portable recycled fish farm apparatus is common in Europe. [...]

Le Marche among the Best Travel Destinations for 2016

Le Marche among the Best Travel Destinations for 2016 | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

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.

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).
