Fiola Mare brings Le Marche to Georgetown

Fiola Mare brings Le Marche to Georgetown | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

W hen Fabio Trabocchi announced his plan to open a third restaurant in Washington, after the fizzy Fiola in Penn Quarter and the casual Casa Luca downtown, the Italian chef said Fiola Mare on the Georgetown waterfront would allow him to invest in his personal taste. “If you ask me what I prefer to eat and cook,” he said two years ago, “it is always fish. Fish in combination with pasta.”[...]

Trabocchi, who grew up near the Adriatic Sea in the Le Marche region of Italy, is a terrific chef whose sterling credentials date back to the three-star Gualtiero Marchesi in Milan, where he began work at 16. Surely I’m not the only diner who still misses his four-star feats at the late Maestro in Tysons Corner (in a spot that will soon play host to America Eats Tavern by José Andrés). [...]

Le Marche off the beaten path | A place once sacred, now haunting

Le Marche off the beaten path | A place once sacred, now haunting | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The former monastery near Massa Fermana called the Convento di San Francesco was originally founded in 1215 by St Francis, who personally chose its position on an isolated hill separate from but in sight of the small town of Massa Fermana. The monastery was closed in the 1890s, for reasons I was not able to discover, and the property passed to the village. During the last war, I was told, the buildings were used to house refugees from the fighting and the church continued to be used until the 1950s. The property is now empty and boarded up, but if you enter (which you shouldn’t) it has that remarkable sense of distressed beauty common to so many abandoned buildings. There is a peculiar sadness to seeing such a beautiful building, one of whose key purposes was to represent continuity of shared beliefs and values falling into decay. The building itself seems determined to transmit memories of what it was and who was there. [...]

Pope asked the participants of the 36th pilgrimage from Macerata to Loreto, to pray for the Peace in Palestine

Pope asked the participants of the 36th pilgrimage from Macerata to Loreto, to pray for the Peace in Palestine | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Pope Francis on Saturday evening made a phone call to a group of young Italians who were on pilgrimage, encouraging them to embrace hope in God and reject mediocrity.

“Don’t let yourselves be discouraged by failure or anxiousness that wants to remove your dreams, that wants to close you into its dark mentality rather than letting you fly in the light of hope. Please, do not fall into mediocrity, into that mediocrity that lowers and makes us grey, for life is not grey, life is for betting on grand ideas and for great things,” he said in a phone call on June 7 to the participants of the 36th annual pilgrimage from Macerata to Loreto, Italy.

The basilica in Loreto is believed to contain the “holy house” where the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary at the annunciation.

The Pope said that was pleased to be with the young pilgrims “virtually,” the Holy See Press Office reports. He asked especially for their prayers for the June 8 meeting of prayer at the Vatican with the presidents of Israel and Palestine and the Orthodox Christian Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I.

“I ask you please, unite yourselves to us and ask God, through the intercession of the Madonna of Loreto, to make resound in that land in a new way, the song of the angels, ‘Glory to God in the highest and peace to mankind’,” the Pope added. [...]

Le Marche, truly a region worth seeing, even if you are only passing through. | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Our journey took us through the lesser known region of Italy called Le Marche (pronounced “lay markay”), sometimes translated into English as “The Marches.”  This area, along with Tuscany and Umbria, comprises the central part of the country and is situated between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine Mountains.  Historically agricultural, the region is still rural to a large extent with a mixture of villages and farmlands.  Our route took us along meandering roads and through hilly terrain, past idyllic hamlets where time seems to have stood still.  We wound our way through the scenic countryside—stopping to snap a photo here and there, often attempting to catch a “drive-by” shot in passing.  Even now, as I look back through the photos from that day, I am struck by the tranquility reflected in each one.  It is Italy at her unassuming finest—homey and pastoral.  Truly a region worth seeing—even if you are only passing through.

Lying east of Umbria, along the Adriatic, Le Marche is often overlooked by tourists who flock to other more popular Italian destinations, but it is noted for its hill towns, dramatic scenery and its seafood, olives and famed white wine, Vernaccia. The six-day tour includes bread-making classes, olive oil and wine tastings, and a trip to the fish market at Senigallia to buy fish fresh off the boat for the final cooking class and farewell dinner.

They have have designed a series of culinary tours aimed at bringing visitors into the kitchens of Italian home cooks and local chefs.

Ascoli Piceno is probably one of the most attractive small cities you have never heard of. It sits right in the south of the Le Marche region at the confluence of two rivers, the Tronto and the Castellano. The centre of the retains its medieval layout and buildings, and it is crammed with beautiful streets, piazzas, churches and towers. Indeed it was once called the citta turrita, the city of towers, because at its peak there were some 200 of them. [...]

“Not the most beautiful, or artistic, or intellectual of cities in Italy, Ascoli Piceno is certainly one of the most easy going and affable, good to look at without being awesome. It is energetic and worldly, and it eats well.”
