Grottammare Le Marche: where the 43rd parallel north cross Italy from East

Grottammare Le Marche: where the 43rd parallel north cross Italy from East | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

If elsewhere tourism has become an industry, here it still has a "crafted" character- more liveable and personalized. The mild, temperate climate, the beach with its fine golden sand, the alleyways and natural "balconies" of the medieval town, the green seafront with its decorative and majestic pines and the splendid Liberty Avenue have always attracted people in search of a holiday with a human dimension...

Bridging the Adriatic, Italy and Croatia

Bridging the Adriatic, Italy and Croatia | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

For centuries the Adriatic has been a major highway and, for this reason, the Abruzzo and Le Marche regions of Italy share history, culture, tourism, arts and ancient crafts with Croatia. The EU "Adristorical Lands" project aims to highlight remarkable, but largely unknown attractions, on both sides of the Adriatic. I embark on a voyage of discovery.

Le Marche - Crossing into Le Marche the scenery changes, mountains replaced by rolling green hills and villages by much larger settlements. Ascoli Piceno has a delightful historical centre built out of travertine, a local limestone, and the Renaissance Piazza del Popolo is among the most beautiful squares in Italy. There's much to explore here, including the Cathedral and the Palazzo dell'Arengo, housing the city's magnificent art collection. Also worth a visit is the beautifully restored theatre.
Slightly smaller than Ascoli is Offida, dating back to the stone age, and built entirely of Le Marche brick. It's famous for its lace and the local women can still be seen, sitting outside their houses with needle and thread. The most impressive monument is the church of St. Maria della Rocca, once a castle but donated to the Franciscan monks in 1039 . They incorporated an older church into the crypt and their new church occupies the first floor, with traces of the original frescoes still visible.

Expat veteran fights for the right to vote from Porto d'Ascoli, Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Under UK law, expats who have spent more than 15 years abroad are denied the vote. But World War II veteran Harry Shindler is going to the European Court of Human Rights in an effort to change the government's mind. He explains the motivation for his battle.
Harry Shindler has what most of us would think of as an idyllic existence.
The World War II veteran lives in the beautiful eastern Italian resort of Porto d'Ascoli, overlooking the blue waters of the Adriatic. Warm weather, friendly locals, good food, fine wine: life is good.
But Mr Shindler, a picture of healthy contentment at 89, is burning with anger inside...
