The Bersaglieri of Ascoli Piceno

Look how they march playing music: I’ve fallen in love with the Marche region of Italy. I will be sharing more and more of this love with you. June 2, 2018 we visited Ascoli Piceno. There we saw a Bersaglieri fanfare present itself at the occasion of the Day of the Republic. Bersagieri are elite soldiers of the Italian army. They don’t walk, but they stroll with a quick pace. Founded in 1836 by Captain Alessandro La Marmora, they became part of the Piemontese military. Impressed wi...

Al Mare

This summer has been the summer that wasn’t. In June there was about a week of actual summer weather in the 80’s but then it became cool for several weeks. Some days long sleeves were in order and many evenings we were donning light jackets for la passaggiata.The temperatures started to rise last week and the forecast is for real summer weather for the near future. Several cities are experiencing heat index warnings for the elderly and young, always a problem amongst concrete and asphalt. Fortu...

If you read the guides about Basilicata they claim the Lucanian are a poor people but the people of Trivigno are generous with what they have and always wanting to share.We had been trying to think what can we do to repay this generosity?

Because "the Marches" – the historic borderlands of the Papal States – more than pull their weight in the national psyche. Giacomo Leopardi, Italy's great 19th-century author, was marchigiano. So was revolutiona...
