MaremmaBlog's insight:
Dirk Vogel is a noted fashion and advertising photographer. The finissage of his latest project, called “Still Water”, will take place on 9 July 2016 at Argentario Golf Resort & Spa near Porto Ercole, in Maremma Tuscany. In “Still Water”, the classical idea of the portrait is undermined by the use of a natural filter, water, the ideal tool to tell the everyday life in the form of suspended storytelling. The vernissage was on 25 November 2015 in Rome’s Piazzadispagna9 Art Gallery, where the sole exhibition has been exposed since.

DaylyMail Journalist in Le Marche | Across the trim torso of Italy: Sue Lawley enjoys an odyssey in Tuscany and Umbria

DaylyMail Journalist in Le Marche | Across the trim torso of Italy: Sue Lawley enjoys an odyssey in Tuscany and Umbria | Tuscany Travel | Scoop.it

They say you shouldn't go to Italy in August because it will be insufferably hot, overrun with people, noisy and exhausting. Much better, they tell you, to avoid the height of the summer and go when things are cooler and quieter.
I say nonsense.
I say go to Italy when the weather is endlessly perfect and a hot sun creates days that last for ever. I say visit Italy when the whole country seems to be on holiday with you, like a vast, extended family.
In Italy in August, people are eating breakfast at midday, lunch at teatime and dinner when they should be in bed, and toddlers are still toddling at midnight - and no one cares about anything because for a week or two at least, the whole world has come to a stop.
From the coast of southern Tuscany on the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Adriatic Riviera on the other side of Italy is a distance of barely 190 miles - not far at all.
Yet a journey from coast to coast in Italy is a journey through different lands.
Modern Italy is a country shaped from the histories of separate cities, states and regions. You sample them all as you cross it. And the truth is you can enjoy it at almost any time of the year.

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, September 30, 2013 3:16 AM

Here the highlight regarding Le Marche: 

The final leg of our journey took us into Le Marche, the region that links Umbria with the Adriatic.
Its most famous town is Urbino, which came to prominence during the Renaissance under the leadership of Duke Federico of Montefeltro.
Today his beautiful palace houses one of the finest art collections in all of Italy, including many works by Urbino's most famous master, Barocci. Unfortunately, Barocci never achieved the same fame as some of his contemporaries because he hardly ever left his native city.
Our final destination was Pesaro. This coastal town is like Blackpool would be if the sun shone all the time. It happens to be the birthplace of another Italian genius - the composer Rossini - and we were there to enjoy the festival that the town has staged in his honour every year since 1980.
The place has changed a bit since his day.
At one end of the town is the beach where in August, holidaymakers lie in tightly packed rows under their pre-booked umbrellas. At the other stands the Teatro Rossini, which opened in 1818 with Rossini himself conducting a performance of his opera The Thieving Magpie.
It's a 15-minute walk from the beach to the theatre - from one aspect of Italy on holiday to another. But they do have something in common: both are lively, sunny and not a little chaotic.
One evening as we walked back from an opera performance at the theatre, we stopped at the seafront for a spectacular fireworks display that must have lasted nearly an hour. Accompanying it was the overture to The Thieving Magpie. I think Rossini would have approved.

The Hermit Ibis loves Maremma Tuscany! | MaremmaBlog

The Hermit Ibis loves Maremma Tuscany! | MaremmaBlog | Tuscany Travel | Scoop.it
After 300 years of extinction from Europe, the Hermit Ibis has recently returned to migrate here. One of its favorite spots? The Maremma in southern Tuscany!
MaremmaBlog's insight:
The Hermit Ibis – also known as Northern Bald ibis or Waldrapp – is a migratory bird found in barren, semi-desert or rocky habitats, often close to running water. This glossy black ibis measures about 70–80 cm (28–31 in). It has an un-feathered red face and head, and a long, curved red bill. It breeds colonially on coastal or mountain cliff ledges, and feeds on lizards, insects, and other small animals. The Northern Bald Ibis was once widespread across the Middle East, northern Africa, southern and central Europe, with a fossil record dating back at least 1.8 million years. It disappeared from Europe over 300 years ago, and is now considered critically endangered.
