Once LE MARCHE never Back

Once LE MARCHE never Back | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

We discovered the Le Marche region on our last trip to Italy and immediately knew we would come back.
The region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adiatric Sea and high Apennine mountains and much of it remains unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism.
Many compare it to Tuscany 20-30 years ago with it's lavender fields, sunflower fields and vineyards spread across hills like a patchwork quilt on an unmade
bed. What makes it so appealing however is that statistics show that Le Marche had just 7 percent as many visits by foreigners as Tuscany.
Urbino was our first stop, a charming small hilltop renaissance town that looks much the same as it did in the 15th century.
Strolling around the town we looked int this window and saw students learning the craft of restoration of antiquities.
As much as I enjoy the art and culture of this town I also enjoy their simple lifestyle.
Pesaro is an appealing seaside town with good shops, fine beaches and great fish.
We only had a couple of hours to spend but I was thrilled with what we saw. First thing was this beautiful smiling lady with her pretty in pink daughters who was about to get married.
Than across the Piazza we saw another couple in wedding attire getting their pictures taken. September must be a big month for weddings, we saw five different wedding parties on this trip.
Lunch was perfect.
Le Marche is to be continued.

Natural Organic Bread Making in the Sibillini Mountains

Natural Organic Bread Making in the Sibillini Mountains | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
A morning demonstration of bread making using natural yeast in the Sibillini mountains.
The demonstration took place at a wonderful organic farm in the Sibillni mountains: Azienda Agricola Michele. They grow their own organic wheat, using old methods, then take their flour to a very old mill in Umbria that uses only river water to power the stone grinding wheels.
These mills are very rare today but this milling method retains all of the nutrients in the wheat so he thinks it’s worth the travel and hassle of bringing his wheat there.
This azienda only makes a wheat classified as #2, a light whole grain which has all of the germ and most of the bran left in. No white flour here. They grow 2 types of flour, a soft wheat for bread, (I forgot the name, but it’s an old variety) and an old variety of hard wheat to make pasta called “Senatore Cappelli”
The pasta is actually made in an old fashioned pasta making place near Tivoli, outside of Rome. Once again, the travel and hassle is worth it to Michele because they do such a superior job turning the flour into pasta.
Not all pasta is equal…how it’s made, which flour, which water, what temperatures, etc etc. make one pasta different from another. It’s an art form.
The bread is made with a natural yeast starter.
The azienda also makes and sells cookies, traditional cookies made with flour, olive oil and vino cotto. No rising agents, no salt, no butter. He mixes the dough, then lets it sit overnight, then in the morning the dough is shaped by hand into little wreaths. We all had a go at this. It’s harder than it looks because each little chunk of dough needs to be warmed in your hands by kneading it until it becomes pliable enough to shape. Good thing there were a lot of us.
Bread made with natural wheat flour and yeast tastes of wheat, has slight sour flavor (not at all like commercial sour doughs) and keeps at least a week, unlike modern Italian bakery bread that becomes hard and crumbly after less than a day. It’s easy to digest, is full of nutrients and best of all has that lovely greyish color, hard crust and springy texture of the breads I so fondly remember from my youth, when most of the bread in Italy was made from these unrefined flours and baked in wood ovens.

Raphael Drawing is the world's most expensive sketch at $48 million

Raphael Drawing is the world's most expensive sketch at $48 million | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
An Italian painter of the High Renaissance, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino "Raphael" was renowned for his work admired for its clarity of form and ease of composition and for its visual achievement of the Neoplatonic ideal of human grandeur. One of Raphael’s drawings, the 16th century "Head of an Apostle" which is a study for Raphael's last painting "Transfiguration" which is on display at the Vatican Museum in Rome, has been sold for $47.9 million at Sotheby’s sale of ‘Old Master & British Paintings’ setting a record for a drawing in art history .
Drawn in black chalk and measuring roughly 15 inches by 11 inches, this extraordinary drawing ‘Head of an Apostle’ which carries along an exceptional provenance notably attracted a number of world’s greatest collectors.
This Raphael’s drawing was actually from the collection at Chatsworth, the ancestral home of the 12th Duke of Devonshire, and it’s expected that proceeds of the sale will go towards the upkeep of the estate.

It was pouring with rain when we arrived in Urbino but that only seemed to add to the mystique of this atmospheric golden stone hilltop citadel city.

Top 5 most amazing and unusual Chapels in Italy

Top 5 most amazing and unusual Chapels in Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
A selection of some of the most unusual and amazing chapels of Italy, ranging from a bone chapel in Milan, over a cave chapel, to a multicolored vineyard chapel, and more.

1. Cave chapel of Genga (Marche)
In 1971 a group of speleologists from Ancona discovered a complex system of remarkable karst caves in the municipality of Genga. The cave system, known as Frasassi grottos, is the largest in Europe. The grottos owe their name to the Hermitage Sanctuary of Santa Maria infra saxa, dug in the rock at the entrance of the caves, which pronounced by the locals over time became ‘frasassi’.
At about 1.5 km from the entrance of the main Frasassi cave is a cavity called Grotta del Santuario, inside which is the Tempietto del Valadier, a chapel designed by the neoclassicist architect Giuseppe Valadier in 1828 for Pope Leo XII. The Chapel with octagonal plan was constructed with white travertine blocks, which were quarried inside the cave.

2. Ossuary Chapel, Milan (Lombardy)
3. Multi-colored vineyard chapel in La Morra (Piedmont)
4. Cappella Palatina, Palermo (Sicily)

Sant'Elpidio a Mare

In spite of its name, Sant’Elpidio a Mare, is on a hill, between the valleys of rivers Ete and Tenna.
Almost entirely surrounded by medieval walls it preserves, in the old town, interesting monuments and works of art. Its past history is rich of events, now it is an industrial shoe-factory centre and there are more than 15000 inhabitants.
Its ancient name, when the village was built on a hill at the time of the barbarian invasions, was Cluana. In the 7th century, in exchange for donation of a piece of land, some monks consigned the dead bodies of Santo Abate Elpidio and his friends Eustachio and Ennesio to the local inhabitants.
The religious buildings of Sant’Elpidio preserve important art treasures. In the main square we find the church of Santa Maria della Misericordia where is a barrel vault painted in fresco by Pomarancio. Next to the church rises the Gerosolimitana tower, built by the Knights of Malta in the 8th century. Inside another church called “Collegiata”, built in 1639 on ruins of 14th century, there are some paintings by Pomarancio and other artists, and, in the presbytery there is a Romans sarcophagus of the 4th century. In the Town Hall has been prepared a fine collection of pictures where a “polittico” by Vittore Crivelli composed of 18 panels stands out among the rest for its value and beauty.

This is the true start of the ski season in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
Although the high peaks mountains of the Marches can be experienced four seasons, the snowy peaks of the Apennine ridge trails offer ideal conditions for winter sports.
In winter you can ski downhill thanks to the modern ski lifts on Monte Acuto, Monte Catria near Frontone and Monte Nerone near Piobbico, the one of Villagrande di Carpegna and the Eremo di Montecopiolo, the nice one of Sassotetto (and Maddalena) near Sarnano and Pintura near Bolognola, the one in Frontignano near Ussita and Monte Prata near Castelsantangelo sul Nera. Going south, you have ski lifts at Forca Canapine near Arquata del Tronto and Monte Piselli near Ascoli Piceno. Ski and snowboarding are largely practiced but the Sibillini Mountains are a fantastic environment for more technical disciplines like Freeride and Backcountry. [...]

Helping in our farmhouse, in beautiful Le Marche, Italy - workaway.info

Helping in our farmhouse, in beautiful Le Marche, Italy - workaway.info | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
We (Graham and Saranne) live here with our two daughters who go to school just across the valley in Colmurano. We live in this area of Italy mainly because of its similarities to Graham's home country of Ireland; from the landscape to the outlook of the local people. We love everything that Le Marche and its people represent: the Marchigiani are hard-working yet have a relaxed approach to life, a deep-rooted sense of tradition and a strong community spirit. Above all, they are warm and friendly people who love a story over a glass or two!

We moved here to take advantage of the beautiful peace and quiet that both this house and the surrounding area offers and to provide our children with a safe and yet also challenging place to grow up. It was our dream and it is now a wonderful reality. That's not to say it isn't hard work - it is a farmhouse after all! We spend most of our free time from our careers tending to the land and the house. (Graham works for the local wineries and Saranne's career is divided between a love of theatre, writing and being a full-time mum.) Our olive trees, veggie patches and vines need constant care and, of course, when the time comes to harvest it is all hands on deck! September is time for grapes, October/November is olive harvest and the veggie patch supplies us with delicious produce all year round which naturally means we are also planting most of the year to ensure a steady flow of food. Then there's making jams and preserves to make use of all the fruits growing on our land - figs, persimmon, pears, apples, elderberries, blackberries, walnuts, almonds, peaches to name just a few of a wide variety!

There are many ways to describe our interests and passions in life – but no specifics quite fit. We share a deep interest in wine, theatre, history and culture, slowfood and the wonders and adventures of the outdoors and that’s why we live here as they are all in abundance in this area of Le Marche. It's funny - we love living life on the slow side but there's always so much to do!

A Day in the Sibillinis: Marche Prosciutto, Salami, Cheese and Truffles | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
Not far from here is a little town in the Sibillini mountains called Montemonaco, a place we like to visit several times a year.Not far from here is a little town in the Sibillini mountains called Montemonaco, a place we like to visit several times a year. The Sibillinis (a protected national park) are part of the Apennine range, the mountains that split Italy into East and West, the “spine” of the country.
Both Le Marche which lays on the East side of the Apennines and Umbria on the West side are famous for lots of fabulous food stuff, including prosciutto, salamis, truffles and porcini mushrooms.

Once you eat a local prosciutto you’ll never go back to eating the famous prosciuttos like Parma for instance. Ours are so flavorful, and in the case of the butchers I go to, are made from animals that are raised humanely by the butchers and eat food grown by the same butchers; in other words, animals that get to run about outdoors with their mates and are fed good quality food without hormones and antibiotics.

They sell wonderful local delicacies: proscuitto, salamis, cheeses from sheep, goat and cow, all sorts of lovely breads, pickles, pasta, legumes and my favorite, truffles and porcini mushrooms.

Travel in Le Marche, connect with locals, find free place to stay

Travel in Le Marche, connect with locals, find free place to stay | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Casey Fenton was traveling in Iceland in 1999 and decided he wanted to connect with locals. He sent a mass email to the student body at the University of Reykjavik, describing himself while asking for a place to stay.

He was amazed at the number of offers he got.

Inspired, he teamed up with some friends and built couchsurfing.org, a basic website designed to help connect a global community hungry for a human-centered approach to travel.

Today, that community has grown to over four million users in 90,000 cities, providing travelers with local hosts and encouraging a globalist mentality around the world.

Even in Le Marche in central Italy you could have a free place to stay when you are travelling instead of paying for hostels.

It is not only about receiving free accommodation, it is about sharing stories, tasting amazing food and drink and being shown to secret local places. It is about laughing and smiling, making new friends and sharing each others ideas and philosophies of life. It is about building bridges across cultures and bringing the world a little closer together.

Collesi beers of Italy

Collesi beers of Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
When one thinks of Italian beer, usually Peroni and Moretti come to mind. Italy is experiencing a craft brew revolution now. One of these brewers, Collesi has actually been in business since 1870. Located in the southwestern hills of Marche in the village of Apecchio, which bills itself as the “City of Beer.” Collesi is at the forefront of craft brewing in Italy. They make a line of Belgian style ales with barley grown on their estate. I recently enjoyed two of their beers.
Collesi, Imper Ale, Bionda pours a bright golden color with a snow-white head. It is cloudy and has some particles floating in it due to the fact that it is unfiltered. The nose is filled with yeasty notes with vanilla and floral aromas. The palate is filled with a rich maltiness, balanced with floral and yeasty flavors. It is light in body and has a pleasing medium finish. This beer weighs in at 6%abv. [...]
Mariano Pallottini's insight:

From the initial 8 breweries established with contributions made under the PSR (Rural Development Plan), now we can count 14 small artisan breweries. It is clear that the Beer is more than a good alternative to sort out the difficulties of the agricolture in Le Marche.

Standing at the bottom of the hill, before the walls that surround Urbino, it appears that time has left it untouched since the Renaissance. Home to the University of Urbino, the Ducale Palace and other historically significant sites, the truth is that the city and its population have changed with time, though its history has been preserved and savored–the town is a World Heritage Site.
For one month in the summer, Iowa State students have the chance to immerse themselves in Italian culture and gain multimedia reporting experience under the guidance of professional journalists. Iowa State has sponsored the Urbino Project for the past two years, and the Greenlee School offers students the chance to earn three 300-level credits for their study abroad experience, where they will produce a multimedia package featuring video, photography and writing components.

Greenlee School senior Kaitlin McKinney participated in the Urbino Project 2012 along with 9 other Iowa State students last summer. Being able to work with the professors, who came from various universities and professional backgrounds, was the best part of the program for McKinney. "I was able to learn about their personal experiences and got their advice about the industry, which was extremely valuable for me as a student," she said.

Fruit and Vegetables from Le Marche

Fruit and Vegetables from Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
The Aso Valley or Val d'Aso, is one of the most important valleys for the horticultural activity, has a long tradition of and is the principal zone for the production of fruit and vegetables in Le Marche.
From Pedaso towards the Sibillini mountains you will be amazed at the number of family run business that continue to thrive on the valley floor.
Many of these small business have in recent years moved over to organic or low impact production and rekindled some of their disappearing cultivation technics.
There is the possibility to visit the farm shops and buy freshly picked fruit and vegetables, jams, fruit in syrup, vegetables under oil or pickled.
Peaches, cherries, apricots and plums exist in large quantity and variety but one fruit is internationally recognised as unic: the Mela Rosa dei Sibillini
The pink apple is a traditional variety of the whole range of the foothills of central Italy.
Typical, in pieces spread, even in orchards and gardens, was the traditional family orchard .
It is an ancient type, which are found historical information dating back to prehistoric times:

"As for flavor, the apples are inferior to those of Tivoli Piceno, but do more figure"
Horace (65 BC), Horatian satire, the 4th and 8th of the 2nd book.

The cultivation area coincides with the territory of the Mountain Community of Sibillini, then spread from the areas up to the high Apennine valleys and slopes close to the chain of the Sibillini Mountains.
Their cultivation had been almost completely abandoned and survived only some very old tree shed. Nowadays, this incredible fruit, is back in culture and thanks to the work of several years of the Mountain Community of Sibillini, we all can bite a "monument of taste and tradition".

Great Marchigiani: Vito Volterra - Italian mathematician

Great Marchigiani: Vito Volterra - Italian mathematician | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
Vito Volterra, (born May 3, 1860, Ancona, Papal States [Italy]—died October 11, 1940, Rome), Italian mathematician who strongly influenced the modern development of calculus.
Volterra’s later work in analysis and mathematical physics was influenced by Enrico Betti while the former attended the University of Pisa (1878–82). Volterra was appointed professor of rational mechanics at Pisa in 1883, the year he began devising a general theory of functionals (functions that depend on a continuous set of values of another function). This concept led to the development of new fields of analysis, including important applications to the solution of integral and differential equations. The important idea of harmonic integrals derives essentially from his functional calculus. He also applied his analytic methods with good results to optics, electromagnetism, and elasticity and to the theory of distortions.
In 1892 Volterra became professor of mechanics at the University of Turin, and eight years later he accepted the chair of mathematical physics at the University of Rome. In 1905 he became a senator of the Kingdom of Italy. Although he was more than 55 years old, he joined the Italian air force during World War I and helped develop dirigibles as weapons of war. The first to propose using helium in the place of hydrogen in airships, he helped organize helium manufacture in Italy.
After the war Volterra devoted his attention to mathematical biology. Unknown to him, much of his work duplicated that of previous researchers, but it drew the attention of mathematicians to the field. His abstract mathematical models of biological processes (such as predator-prey systems) found many analogies in physical science.

Volterra opposed fascism from the outset. In 1931 he refused to take the required oath of loyalty to the government of Benito Mussolini and was forced to leave the University of Rome. The following year he was required to resign from all Italian scientific academies. Thereafter he lived mainly outside Italy. His collected works, Opere matematiche; memorie e note (“Mathematical Works: Memories and Notes”), were published in five volumes between l954 and 1962.

Dreaming place for all tea lovers in Le Marche: Cose di Tè, Jesi

Dreaming place for all tea lovers in Le Marche: Cose di Tè, Jesi | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
Tea tasting is an incredibly fascinating experience, but still not very popular. Actually in our culture the taste and smell are little stimulated and consequently not very much developed.
Therefore, to appreciate the sweetness of a Chinese green Tea or compare Darjeelings flushed in different periods seems to be a very difficult exercise. But as soon as you start practicing tasting and “feeling” the Tea, progress is often very quick and unexpected. Then the pleasure of a good cup of Tea is beyond compare!
That’s why Cose di Tè has created an aTèlier, a place to discover and develop the “sense for Tea”.
Tea is an open door on the passions and culture worldwide. Cose di Tè then is the right place to meet Tea lovers and discover the art of Tea through the tradition of the countries in which it’s still a ritual.

Giovanni Santi, the artist Raphael’s father

Giovanni Santi, the artist Raphael’s father | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
Giovanni Santi, Raphael‘s father, was not a bad artist himself. Although Giorgio Vasari in his “Lives of the Artists”described Santi as a “pittore non molto eccellente” – (not a very distinguished painter), he added “uomo di buono ingegno e e atto a indirizzare i figliuoli per quella buona via” (a man of good intelligence and capable of directing his sons along that good path). The curators of the exhibition, “Raphael and Urbino” at the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche in the Palazzo Ducale in 2009, think that Raphael learnt his trade from his father and not from Perugino.

List some of the places in Le Marche and elsewhere where you can see dear old Mr Santi’s work:
