The Marche region

Marche is a region on the Adriatic coast, which borders with Romagna to the north, Abruzzo to the south, Toscana and Umbria to the west. It's landscape is quite special, with a low coastline, interrupted only by the Monte Conero near it's capital Ancona, a promontory with white cliffs and clear waters. Only a few thousand meters from the coast hills equal to those of Toscana for their poise and serene beauty. Peaks like Monte Carpegna provide a healthy and attractive skiing destination for many Europeans.

It is a peculiar region, with provinces which hold their own identity, and their own dialects: Pesaro the northern most province, famous because it is the hometown of the composer Gioacchino Rossini; Urbino, one of the most beautiful University towns in Italy, and birthplace of painter Raffaello Sanzio. Urbino had its splendour in the Renaissance, the treasures, buildings and palaces still standing proud;

Ancona, the capital , with its important port and home to the second Marine Academy in Italy;

Macerata, beautiful city with its famous Arena Sferisterio, the theater which is said to have the best acoustics in the world, and province of Recanati, one of the most beautiful hill towns in the Marche, and home to writer Giacomo Leopardi, and of tenor Beniamino Gigli; Ascoli Piceno, and it's roman bridge, it's Malatesta fortress, and it's beautiful marble Piazza del Popolo.

It is a land of conjunction between the north and south, and the cuisine is also a conjunction of all the regions which surround the Marche. In ancient cooking books, Marche is not listed, because nothing original was found there, but how can you explain that if you travel the length of this region you can eat better than anywhere else in Italy?

One of the reasons is that the fertile land gives ingredients which are unique in their taste, and it makes for better quality. Add to this the fact that the people of the Marche have a tradition of interacting with their neighbours and have an innate gentleness and hospitality. All is done to perfection, with love and pride.

The coastal area offers fish dishes which are superb, although the fish in the central Adriatic is not sophisticated: the “brodetto“ being the day's catch cooked with a light tomato sauce and coloured with safron; the "lumachine di mare“ cooked in a light fresh tomato sauce and flavoured with wild fennel; the spiedini, like in Romagna, just flavoured with garlic and oil and put on the charcoal.

The hills and the forests give treasures like wild mushrooms and the famous "tartufi“, second in taste only to those from Alba in the Piemonte (actually the Marchigiani say that Alba buys their trouffles in the Marche) whether that is true or not is not important, but it is a fact that the Marche is the largest producer in Italy of this exquisite tuber.

Then the Porchetta - roast pork which is found in markets and even along the roads of the Marche. Bordering regions claim primate to the Porchetta, but the Marche insists it originated there. It is surely quite delicious, as like just about everything else, it is cooked with patience, with the best herbs, the most aromatic wood goes into the barbecue... makes you hungry just thinking about it.

If one must name a dish that is typical of the Marche, then it is surely the "Vincisgrassi“, a Lasagna dish that is made with ingredients that differ depending on which province they are prepared: besciamella and typical minced meat ragout in the north of the region and a sauce made of wild mushrooms, chicken interiors, ham and tartufo in the internal towns.

A famous dish in the Pescara region is the "ravioli“ with ricotta stuffing, and served with a peculiar sauce made from lemon sole, wine and tomato, and topped with loads of Parmigiano.

Ascoli Piceno has the unique "Olive Ascolane“, large juicy green olives pitted and stuffed with meat, then breaded and deep fried.

There aren't an extensive variety of sweets, but those that are made in the Marche are simple and fragrant. Doughnuts, "piconi“ a raviolo made of sweet dough, and the "frustignolo“, a Christmas cake stuffed with crushed almonds often grace the table to cap a meal.

But the true Marchigiani way to end a meal is to serve fresh Pecorino cheese, of compact consistency and with the aroma that comes from the herbs that the sheep is free to eat in the immense pastures.

Wines are excellent in the Marche: from the whites like Verdicchio and Bianchello del Metauro, to the reds, like Rosso Conero and Rosso Piceno. And the variety of sweet wines: the Vin Santo Marchigiano and the Visner, unique to the Marche and made from the "visciola“ cherry.

One suggestion: the first experience with "La Tavola Marchigiana“ should be directly on a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea, so as to delight the palate, and all the other senses.

Montalto delle Marche

Montalto delle Marche is an old medieval Town with a very rich history a the top of a hill.

Montalto is the hometown od Pope Sisto V.

The town is reach of museums and churches and there is a vey big Cathedral.
