Pesaro is a beach town with our hotel only about 50m from the Adriatic Sea. I'd say she is spot on because the whole of the beachfront is one hotel after another. Between the hotels many restaurants and cafes are getting ready to greet the summer tourists - people are painting walls, planting flowers and generally tidying up for the expected influx in a few weeks - glad we won't be here then!

Le Marche Region has generated extraordinary artists, who often had to leave their native land to let their talent shine. Some artists of great value have not been able or wanted to leave Le Marche and only now their greatness is shown to the wide audience as in the case of Barocci, recently celebrated in London by an exhibition of extraordinary success. It is not the case of Luigi Fontana that even if he had the opportunity to work in Rome, he had to return to his Monte San Pietrangeli because of a typhoid infection.

Founded in 1995, CCI [Canadian College Italy] has seen over one thousand graduates pass through its home of Lanciano, an ancient-yet-modern city of 40,000 in the Central region of Abruzzo. About a twenty minute drive to the bustling city of Pescara and less than three hours by bus to Rome, Lanciano is centrally located and well connected by train and bus. Unlike many private schools, CCI provides boarding for its students. Lanciano, with its over 3,300 year history, has much to share with them as both boys and girls residences are located within the historical centre.

Beyond the artistic importance of della Francesca’s work, this painting is world-renowned because it highlights Federico’s profile, and above his very singular nose: we can see that a part of it is missing!
What happened to Montefeltro?
Around 1450 he took part to a tourney: here he was injured with a lance and he lost his right eye. During the 15th century, a wound like that could have been deadly, but Federico pulled himself together very soon: according to the legend, he said: «Patience, I’ll see better with one eye than with a hundred!». So, he decided to cut the upper part of his nose away, in order to see better with his left eye.
