Hound Dog, King Creole, Barbara-Ann, Great Balls of Fire, Shout, Diana..no, we are not moving to the 50s America, and you are still on the right blog. Actually, it’s the ‘40s and ‘50s American culture that is moving to us, le Marche, to Senigallia, to be more precise. Summer Jamboree is THE event of the..
The basement is usually the best place to keep the darkest secrets, but in this case the cellar couldn’t have more to offer. I am speaking about the one in Cupra Montana, which was originally the cellar of the 18th century Monastery of Santa Caterina, not in use anymore. After a beautiful and careful work..
When I was a child, I remembered going with my grandpa to fill the bottles of glass he carefully stored in his cellar. It was a joy to drink that fresh water, especially in Summer, coming from the small drinking fountains. There were many around my area, but he knew exactly the best ones from..
Remember when we talked about the farming tradition in Le Marche? Well, have you ever entered a bar turned into a museum, or viceversa? In Jesi you can! Today we are taking a refreshing, freshly made, seasonal ice cream while diving in history in Bar Trieste. The bar was opened in 1911 by Angelo Capogrossi’s..
Summer equals fresh fruit. But, of course, in Le Marche we could not only think about healthy, fresh fruit: here they are Peaches as little sweet, delicious desserts.

Since 69% of Le Marche is composed by a hill, I’ll guess today another climb is awaiting. We..

Niccolò Bonanni shares the same (unlucky) destiny of many important masters: he was the teacher of the famous composer Gaspare Spontini, who would once shine at the court of Napoleon. Even music experts have rarely..

It is maybe because the Saint celebrated on this day has quite a history, San Giovanni, or St. John the Baptist, or maybe because summer has officially just begun. However, we, in Le Marche, have nothing to envy to “Saint John’s fires” abroad. Our celebration is..
You may have realized so far how tight is the bond between Le Marche and the food. Well, besides every local sagra that you can find on every summer weekend, we also have an amazing gathering with a evocative name: Magnalonga. Magna is the dialect for eat, and longa the dialect for long. You get the gist of it. The event consists..
Since Isabelle and I work in the tourism field, and this turns out to be a very busy season, we are going to post new articles once a week, starting from June. Precisely, you can find the new article on Thursday. But in September we will again report every Thursday and Sunday about Le Marche,..
