Organetto Player: Stella Cerioni by Katerina Bon Vora

"Stella is one of the first people we met when we moved to Pesaro. Through her, a whole different side of Italy opened up for me. She and her folk musician friends played at Gradara that beautiful night - a testament to the spiritedness of Italians (lucky that I get to see it intimately, ashamed I used to think that this heightened sense of communion and community was exclusive to where I am from).

Compared to most Italian women I've met, Stella holds conversations looking at you in the eye. Warm, open, a bit shy, curious, starry-eyed (Stella means star in Italian), I can tell her life is full of interesting stories and adventures waiting ahead of her. Here she spends some time sharing her music. I've only managed to capture some of our conversations because shes camera-shy but the little I took (with a baby in one arm. haha) tells the story of how she started playing the Organetto.

Hidden Jems: The best part of Italy - If you like Tuscany… try Le Marche

Hidden Jems: The best part of Italy - If you like Tuscany… try Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Umbria is the obvious alternative to Tuscany but its hills and wines are fast becoming as well known as its neighbours’. So if you’re looking for somewhere new to visit but with the charm and scenery of Tuscany, try Le Marche - a mainly agricultural region on the Adriatic coast with just an hour between the beach and the Sibillini mountains. The Sibillini national park is ideal for walking, gentle cycling, mountain biking or horse riding. E lsewhere the region is dotted with caves including the famous Grotte di Frasassi which includes a cavern so large that it would fit Milan Cathedral inside it. The wines are little known outside Italy but are a joy to discover, while the food, like the region, is a mix of sea and land with regional dishes of both fish and game.

Autumn in Le Marche: Castelsantangelo sul Nera on the Sibillini Mountains

A riot of autumnal colour forms the backdrop to a rural scene in Castelsantangelo sul Nera the heart of the Monti Sibillini Area in Le Marche.

Autumn in Le Marche is mostly warm and balmy and amazingly beautiful. The majority of the time the weather is still good. The landscape colouring becomes more autumnal and is coupled with spectacular sunsets at this time of the year. It is time for visiting small villages and hamlets, walk in the nature collecting an abundance of wild treats from nuts to mushrooms and truffles.

The most Interesting and controversial artist of le Marche: Daniele Camaioni presents TRIPFOOD

"The universe exists only for the purpose of life, and all that lives feeds itself." Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Everything revolves around food. Camaioni is one of those artists who work with anomalous materials. In his case this means cooking ingredients, food products which are subjected to a long preparation and in the end become landscapes, sculptures, small objects destined to disappear, but which the artist captures in sharp and bold images. An operation that combines creativity and knowing craftsmanship in its treatment of an ill-defined material like food. Camaioni kneads, cuts, decorates, cooks and melts: a process that culminates in the aesthetic transposition of two dimensions, a framework inside of which a job otherwise destined to extinguish and consume itself is fixed and projected. In passing from the kitchen to the artist's studio the work undergoes a series of natural transformations that render immaterial that which by nature has consistency. The food, prepared and photographed, becomes a digital archive of images, which find further meaning in Camaioni's visual projects, which produce surreal and metaphysical scenarios.
Since the time of Brillat-Savarin, who wrote a quite thorough "Physiology of taste", things have evolved a great deal. Not that food has lacked an aesthetic quality, especially in France, but even a man so completely dedicated to the exaltation of taste like Brillat-Savarin, could never have imagined that cooking ingredients could be transformed into works of art!

Foreigners in Le Marche: Grape Harvest and Starting to Make Wine

Foreigners in Le Marche: Grape Harvest and Starting to Make Wine | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

We have a small vineyard with mostly Trebbiano grapes, a small sweet white grape that is used for making table wine and is one of the principal grapes in Le Marche’s DOC Falerio wine.

A few weeks ago along with our guests we harvested our grapes and are now making wine.

What a beautiful day it was…one of those lovely September days with hardly any humidity in the air with blue skies.

Next the grapes go into the crusher; ours is a small hand crank affair.

The crusher separates out the stems which would make the wine bitter. the green crates contain the stems which then can be distilled into Grappa, or in our case, composted.

It’s a sticky job!

Next the juice is put into a big bin, covered with a cloth to keep the wasps and other bugs out, and kept cool with ice. We used 5 liter jugs of frozen water. Our good friend, neighbor and superb wine maker Emanuele suggested we do this and keep it cool until the fermentation is done. Fermentation took over a week.

It’s wonderful to have guests who like to participate in farm activities…we all have fun. Now hopefully we’ll also have a nice white table wine to share with guests. I’ll keep you posted!

Italy’s Most Mysterious Paintings: Raphael’s La Fornarina

Italy’s Most Mysterious Paintings: Raphael’s La Fornarina | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

La Fornarina, by Raphael is a Renaissance portrait that’s not only sensual… it’s hiding some serious surprises.

Here’s what we know about La Fornarina, which hangs in the Palazzo Barberini in Rome. (An excellent copy hangs in Rome’s Galleria Borghese, as well).

We know the portrait was completed around 1520, the year of Raphael’s untimely death. We know the work is Raphael’s. And we know, of course, what it depicts: a lovely young woman, posing mostly nude, staring with a sweet, coy look at the viewer (and at the artist).

The big mystery: Who is she?

Of course, we can’t be sure. But some clues have led art historians to think she was none other than Raphael’s own mistress. And—here’s where Dan Brown would really go crazy—secret bride.

Raphael was a bit of a ladies’ man. But one woman, it seems, really stole his heart. Nicknamed “la Fornarina,” Margherita Luti, the daughter of a local baker, bewitched Raphael so much, the artist couldn’t concentrate on his commissioned work for Agostino Chigi—so much so that Chigi finally allowed her to move into the palace with him!

That the subject posed nude for Raphael is just one reason to think she might have been more than just a professional commission. Another hint: the fact that Raphael signed his name on the subject’s left armband, the arm connected to one’s heart. Or that her right hand is resting, gently, over her heart.

If this really is la Fornarina, then an even greater mystery was uncovered a few years ago—literally. When the painting was cleaned and restored, something surprising turned up on the girl’s left hand: a wedding ring.

Why did that give believers of the portrait’s identity as la Fornarina cause to gasp? Because while Raphael was going around with the baker’s daughter, he was engaged… to a cardinal’s niece. He never married the woman. But this, some say, might be the reason why: Turns out, he was already secretly married to la Fornarina!

That he would have kept the marriage a secret would have made sense, given his engagement and his high social status—and since he suddenly died at the age of 37, it’s equally plausible that a student of his would have rushed to cover up the ring, hoping to keep the marriage a secret for posterity. (It is, in fact, generally thought that the painting was found in Raphael’s studio when he died and that the “finishing touches,” including, perhaps, a cover-up, were added by his student, Giulio Romano, who then sold the painting).

Of course, lots of art historians disagree. One running theory: The woman isn’t a lover of Raphael, but Francesca Ardeasca, the wife of Agostini Chigi. That would explain the ring. But there’s no other portrait of Francesca in existence, so it’s impossible to prove.

Saint Louis Art Museum presents international exhibition "Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master"

Saint Louis Art Museum presents international exhibition "Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master" | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

SAINT LOUIS, MO.- This fall the Saint Louis Art Museum presents Federico Barocci (c. 1526, Urbino Le Marche – 1612, Urbino): Renaissance Master. Opening October 21, 2012, this international exhibition showcases a trove of exceptionally beautiful paintings and studies, the majority of which have never before been seen in this country, gathered from more than 35 institutions worldwide. Federico Barocci was one of the most innovative Italian artists of the second half of the 16th century and was highly sought after by both religious and secular patrons. A major influence on European masters such as Peter Paul Rubens, Barocci's art combines the beauty of the High Renaissance and the dynamism of the Baroque. In addition to his refined paintings, Barocci completed thousands of preparatory studies (over 1,500 survive), including pastel drawings and oil sketches— a technique he pioneered. Curated in St. Louis by Judith W. Mann, curator of European art to 1800, and Babette Bohn, professor of art history at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master offers visitors a unique opportunity to study and understand a master's artistic process. The exhibition features a range of Barocci’s best works from enchanting pastel and chalk studies to truly exceptional and breathtaking paintings. An international symposium will be held January 10–12, 2013, featuring exhibition curators Judith W. Mann, Babette Bohn, and Carol Plazzotta of the National Gallery, London, as well as an international panel of scholars.

Artisan Weaving, Le Marche: La Tela, Macerata, Italy

This workshop of artisan weaving, operates in the territory of Macerata utilizing exclusively old manual looms.

A choice born from the desire to repropose the forgotten tradition of the local textile. Complicated procedures and archaic techniques permit the realization of a hand made and valuable original.
The workmanship tends to create a type of ethnic fabric according to the antique technique of “liccetti”, which permit the reproduction of the design, a method kept alive until today thanks to the wisdom and constancy of a few weaving professionals in the Marche territory.
This type of hand made product is decorated with elements of natural inspiration that are documented extensively for all of the ‘300’s and ‘400’s in the rustic materials of central Italy. Dragons, lions, eagles, griffons, peacocks…figurations both realistic and imaginary, make precious this part of the production of “la Tela” workshop; in particular those “classical” elements that in the past constituted the female dowry, bed covers, sheets, hand towels, tablecloths, drapery and carpets.
Everything can be realized from the planning to the exact measurements; enriching the handwork not only with antique designs described above, but also with personalized designs, responding to the esthetic needs of the customer. Thanks to this prerogative the production of the workshop distinguishes itself from the traditional creation of (to compliment both rustic or modern furniture)

Heritage group wants to protect Leopardi sites

Heritage group wants to protect Leopardi sites | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Recanati (Macerata) October 29 - Italy's top heritage organization is collecting votes on whether it should protect two places that inspired a couple of great 19th-century poet Giacomo Leopardi's best-known poems as part of its Places of the Heart collection.

The Fondo per l'Ambiente Italiano (FAI) says that until November 30, fans of Leopardi can vote to protect the Colle dell'Infinito (Hill of Infinity) and the Piazzuola Sabato del Villaggio in the Romantic poet's Marche home village Recanati. The FAI works to preserve sites all over Italy that are deemed to be important to Italy's artistic and natural heritages.

The home where Leopardi was born in the late 18th century in Recanati is already a heritage site with a museum.

From there, visitors can follow some of his favourite walks, including the picturesque piazzuola (small piazza) and the Colle looking out over the rolling Marche landscape.

The two odes, 'L'infinito' and 'Il sabato del villaggio', are among Italy's most popular poems and are learned by generations of schoolchildren.

The Pink Apples Mistery

The Pink Apples Mistery | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The pink apples are strange, arcaic fruits for ever grown in central Italy, in the wildlife reserve of the Monti Sibillini. They are small, uneven and slightly squat, with a very short petiole. The colour is greenish, with shades of pink and purple red. The pulp is sourish and sweety, the scent is intense and flavoured.
They have almost disappeared from the Italian tables…. just a few very old trees have survived in Le Marche countryside… but recently Slow Food has highlighted their nutritional qualities and fostered the implantation of young trees of this archaeological variety of apples, which perfectly maintain freshness from fall to spring without chemicals or refrigeration… They just need a quiet bed of straw, where to lay down during the cold season.
The Pink Apples save a mystery anyway…. that nobody has managed to solve, until now. They produce fruits every two year with no apparent scientific reasonRead the full article [...]

Le Marche: Land of wine and money - FT.com By Madeleine Johnson

Le Marche: Land of wine and money - FT.com By Madeleine Johnson | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

How many readers, on a gloomy, stressful day in some cold, northern city have not dreamt of ditching it all to live in a beautiful corner of Italy – say Tuscany, Friuli or Le Marche?
Many tourists are familiar with the hospitality side of agriturismi – rural inns or bed and breakfasts, or restaurants that serve home-produced food in a family setting – but few realise the extent of their agricultural concerns. The Italian agricultural ministry invented the agriturismo scheme in 1985 as a way to keep Italian farmers on the land, allowing them to use their buildings to tap into Italy’s rich tourism market. By law, 51 per cent of an agriturismo’s revenues must come from income-producing agriculture, including livestock or forest management, though owners are not obligated to do the cultivation themselves and may rent out their land.
A choice of properties across a broad price range and in a variety of Italian regions makes this an attractive time to purchase income-producing property that combines the pleasures of hosting guests with farming in Italy’s most attractive regions.
Prices vary widely because of variables such as the region, the variety of grapes cultivated and building preservation. Prices have increased by more than 20 per cent since 2000, though this represents a 3.4 per cent drop adjusted for inflation.
Certainly, lower-priced sectors such as camping and agriturismi have been less affected by downturns in tourism than more expensive types of lodging. [...]

Kevin Gibney, a transplanted New Yorker who sources and restores property in Le Marche, says the most common mistake newcomers to agriturismi ownership make is underestimating the costs of restoration and effective marketing. To avoid construction delays, Gibney says: “Don’t begin without a contract written by an Italian lawyer that includes a guaranteed price and penalties for delays.”

An Early Truffle Fare in Italy: Sant' Angelo in Vado

An Early Truffle Fare in Italy: Sant' Angelo in Vado | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Sant’ Angelo in Vado is a small town in the Marche region not far from Mercatello near the Umbrian border. It’s known for its true white truffles, Tuber Magnatum Pico.

Sant’ Angelo throws a big party in October called Mostra Nazionale del Tartufo Bianco pregiato delle Marche. It’s not the rather staid event held in San Miniato in Tuscany; here there are rock bands blasting away, magicians making things disappear, butchers slicing through hams, and the rather odd gent you see to the right with his two legged camel and bone phone. if I remember my physical anthropology, it seems to have femur written all over it. In any case he hes a leg up on the TIM service. (He was constantly on the phone inquiring for the location of Sant’ Angelo’s virgins, who, he surmised after a while, were all “used up” or something.)

And here’s something you probably don’t know. Withing the mayor’s “cabinet” there exists a “Minister of Truffles.” I want that job.

It’s not often you hear of a truffle festival held in October. The dogs usually don’t start pawing the ground before November. A truffle hunter told me that the reason it’s held in October is that if a few early truffles were found, they’d bring a great price on account of the scarcity of them. And indeed they are expensive. You can see a picture I took of the pathetically small truffles being sold for quite a lot of money in this early truffle fair.

Here’s the official site (in Italian), in case you want to attend next year.
