Val d'Ambro in Mountain Bike

Val d'Ambro in Mountain Bike | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

Partenza dal Santuario dell’Ambro ed ascesa, si sale fino alle pendici di Monte Castelmanardo, Si scende per il 224 fino al Colle Ara del Re, da qui si prosegue sul 243 fino a Casale Ricci. Arrivati alla Fonte del Faggio si scende fin sotto Balzo Rosso dove prenderemo il 230 che ci porterà di nuovo al Santuario. La discesa è quasi tutta nel bosco ed alterna tratti scorrevoli ad altri tecnici che costringono anche a scendere dalla bicicletta. Prestare attenzione a due grandi frane che hanno letteralmente spazzato via il sentiero come potrete vedere nel video. Il percorso è da affrontare in gruppo e soprattutto da persone esperte. [...]

British Prisoners of War, Sforzacosta di Macerata, Italy

British Prisoners of War, Sforzacosta di Macerata, Italy | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

The interior of a prisoner-of-war hut. The space is filled by the receding lines of wooden framed bunk-beds. Men, lie and sit on the three-tiered bunks clothed and unclothed

Paul Bullard was a young artist learning his trade at the Royal College of Art when the Second World War broke out. His studies were interrupted by his service in the Royal Artillery, during which he was taken prisoner by Axis forces and held at Campo Concentramento PG 53 at Sforzacosta in Italy. It is this camp that provides the setting of this painting, which highlights the stoicism of the prisoners in coping with the boredom of captivity. The regular and regimented rows of bunk beds emphasise the repetitive nature of internment and the lack of personal space. Yet the lines and structures are broken up by the lively variety of the prisoners, with drying clothes, draped bedding and dangling limbs refusing to be constricted. There is an impression of restless waiting, of life interrupted but nevertheless continuing. Bullard resumed his studies in 1946, completing them the following year. [...]

Itinerario in bicicletta nelle Marche | Le Abbazie Medievali nel Cuore delle Marche

Itinerario in bicicletta nelle Marche | Le Abbazie Medievali nel Cuore delle Marche | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

Si pedala per circa 100 km seguendo le suggestioni e seduzioni del paesaggio tra un’ Abbazia e l’altra, tuffandosi nel Medioevo.

Percorrere l’ itinerario delle Abbazie nel cuore delle Marche vuol dire ritrovare i grandi centri della cultura del Medioevo, dove i monaci hanno operato e dato vita ad una società civile e spirituale di grande valore storico- artistico, raccontati da testi scritti e libri miniati, chiese ed abbazie.
La scelta di un viaggio in bicicletta nelle Marche unisce cultura, tradizioni locali e gastronomia , in una cornice paesaggistica di grande interesse storico-naturalistico, grazie alla pratica del cicloturismo che trasforma il soggiorno in una opportunità per il benessere psicofisico. [...]

Quality Le Marche bike rental hire for cycling holidays in Italy

Quality Le Marche bike rental hire for cycling holidays in Italy | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

We have experienced ever increasing numbers of guests who want to bring their own machines or have asked us with help in arranging an Italian bike rental in Le Marche and we have become more and more frustrated.
The cyclists who come on holiday to Marche tend to be cycle enthusiasts who expect the best and there just hasn’t been a high end rental facility available.
Initially we contacted a franchise who operate cycle rentals throughout Italy but found their delivery costs and bike hire prices to be very high, also wherever possible we want our guests to shop locally and we want the local community to benefit especially when they are able to offer a quality service.
From our earliest days here in Le Marche region, when in doubt we have always asked a local. Like most villages in Italy we have a local bike club who, on a weekly basis, don lycra and strive for burning thighs and chafing, in our case we contacted Marco from the local bike club, who has helped us with the supply of high end bike rentals.
If you know anything about the local Le Marche terrain or have read about the great routes via our cycling holidays page then you may have decided to come and do a bit of riding and will want a bike hire. [...]

Birdwatching in Le Marche

Birdwatching in Le Marche | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

It must be disappointing with the dearth of trip reports for Italy as it tends to get written off as a birdless country. This is simply not true expecially in Le Marche. However, birding in Italy is not easy and definitely requires perseverance and good field craft; birds are generally shy and flighty. It is possible to see a nice selection of Mediterranean species in mid July which is certainly not the best month of the year. Early starts are advisable when there is shade and it is cooler – birds are fairly active until about 10am but with temperatures regularly over 40°C by midday things can really tail off. [...]

Ascoli Piceno - Dreaming In Italian

Ascoli Piceno - Dreaming In Italian | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard of Ascoli Piceno. “What? Is that some kind of fish?” Well, no, it’s a beautiful city in the Marche. I had heard the name only as a type of Italian wine. Like all cities of any size it has a title; in this case “city of art”. Probably a bunch of cities have that some self designation. It’s major points of interest in the historic center seems to have been built 500-600 years ago although of course the city is much older. The sense of history is ever present in Italy. People live in houses older than our country. Daily life is lived in an environment of great beauty. Of course when living here it must just seem like background. One doesn’t wander around like an awestruck tourist all the time going about one’s daily life. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, November 14, 2013 6:16 AM

This is how the author introduces himself:
My name is Joe Nance and I’m a long time Italophile. I think that my love affair with Italy began when a former girlfriend gave me a copy of the Basics of Italian cooking by Marcella Hazan . I’ve always liked to cook (since I like to eat) and was amazed that you could make such good things with so few ingredients. One thing led to another and I began to learn some Italian. I’ve now made 7 trips to Italy and hope to make many more. I have taken up the study of Italian after a long lapse and am enjoying it immensely. So this blog is centered around the food, language and travel in Italy. Along with a few digressions of course.
A few words about the title of the blog “Dreaming In Italian”. I have often heard that having a dream in an acquired language is a sign of a reasonable level of fluency and certainly of a comfort level with the language. That is certainly my goal for learning the language. Of course the subtext of the dreaming is the general admiration for many Italian qualities; the relative level of spontaneity, the generally good food and the openness of so many of the people there.

The Rotondi's List: The Schindler's list in Le Marche to save the national art heritage!

The Rotondi's List: The Schindler's list in Le Marche to save the national art heritage! | Le Marche - discover this magical part of Italy! | Scoop.it

The first of the Italian ‘Monuments Men’, Pasquale Rotondi, was 31 years old when the Minister of Education at the time, Giuseppe Bottai, called him up on the eve of the war with a task which would make even the toughest Indian Jones shake in his boots: Save the national art heritage!
-Where to keep the masterpieces?
After an extensive search, Rotondi identified the XV century Rocca di Sassocorvaro in the Marche region. The location seemed out of the way. The professor thought that the area would be far from the rumblings of war. There were also large dry underground rooms and thick fortified walls that could guarantee protection for the works that would arrive there from all over Italy.
Rotondi soon realised that the money and equipment weren’t there as they were all being put into the war effort. But somehow the organisational machinery got moving anyway. Masterpieces arrived at the Rocca in absolute secrecy from all over Italy. Even if around the castle there was a continual movement of wooden boxes arriving day and night, no one amongst the German and fascist spies suspected anything. The plan worked perfectly [...]

John Heseltine heads south to Puglia and the unspoilt Gargano Peninsula.

The Gargano Peninsula, with its steep forested hills and beautiful coastline, is irresistible for holiday makers who relish its gorgeous weather and its unhurried, unspoilt way of life. Arriving from the north, the first place to experience the area’s delights is the small town of Rodi Garganico. As you wind your way down the hillside on the number 89 road, passing numerous olive and carob trees, you get your first close look at the Adriatic’s clear, turquoise waters and beautiful beaches of white sand and the harbourside where boats leave for the nearby Tremeti Islands, with several good restaurants specialising in seafood.
