Servigliano, city of memory

The anniversary of Holocaust Remembrance Day has just passed. None of us have to forget.
Today we will talk about Servigliano, a splendid village in the Fermano called "the city of memory".
Not everyone knows that for its strategic position and since served by a railway, this small village in the heart of the province of Fermo, in the early twentieth century, saw the construction of a prison camp with perimeter wall and internal barracks that was used during the two world wars, first as a prisoner-gathering camp, later as an internment camp for Jews, and then hosted refugees from the lands of Istria and Dalmatia until 1955.

Today in the original city walls there is an immense green park called "Parco della Pace" equipped with structures for sports and outdoor life. The memories and testimonies that involved the community of Servigliano are now collected and kept in the museum of the "House of Memory" which was born inside the former railway station adjacent to the field.

But Servigliano is also much more.
The small village, which has almost 2300 souls, has obtained the status of "ideal city" for its eighteenth-century canons. The old part of the city is inscribed with a quadrilateral consisting of terraced houses with three entrance doors (Porta Marina, Porta Santo Spirito and Porta Navarra) and a large central square where the collegiate church of S. Marco and the Palazzo Pubblico overlook, whose courtyard houses a centuries-old magnolia. In front of the square, houses and majestic buildings alternate, with gardens and suggestive views.

Leopardi and the Infinito

The one just finished was an important year for the culture of the Marche region and in particular for Recanati.
The town that gave birth to Giacomo Leopardi, in fact, has been crossed by numerous events and initiatives for the celebration of the 200 years of Infinity.

You can still visit the artist's birthplace, the places where he grew up and where, as a self-taught, he refined his culture, and the Colle dell 'Infinito, a source of inspiration for his masterpieces.

The Holy House of Loreto

Marche is a land of history, culture and traditions.
Today we will tell you about the history of the Holy House of the Sanctuary of Loreto.

On 9 December an important anniversary is celebrated in Loreto: the feast of the Coming of the Holy House.
It is a historical re-enactment that celebrates transport in the Marian city of the Holy House; in the countryside around the city fires and bonfires are lit and all the bells of the parishes ring in celebration, while the prayer vigil is held in Piazza della Madonna. The climax is at 3 in the morning, the time when the three walls were believed to have landed where they still are.

Even today, the religious tradition of the Fires of the Coming, also perpetrated in the municipalities along the Via Lauretana, is accompanied by the flashes diffused in the countryside that contribute to creating a mystical atmosphere, involving entire families.
It is in fact common practice to put lit lights outside the windows to symbolically indicate the way of the transporting angels, while in the "fogarò" or "fogaroni" men still light fireworks, with the women intent on offering those present grilled wine and meat , reciting the Holy Rosary and singing the Lauretan litanies.

The Translation of the Holy House is celebrated on December 10, but the night before the city is awake precisely for the Coming, or the moment when the miraculous Translation, which took place by angelic hand, meant that the three intact walls of the Holy House of Nazareth (where Jesus and his family lived) arrived on the Lauretan hill. The facts date back to 1296, although the mysterious journey of the Holy House began as early as 1291, contemplating a total of five translations, one of which was in Tersatto (in Croatia) and the others between Ancona and Recanati.

Quality Fair and the success of the Mediterranean Diet

dieta-mediterranea-mare-marche.jpg
This quest too? year the fourth edition of the? Quality Fair? was successfully held.
In the splendid location of Palazzo Sant? Agostino in Montegiorgio, between exhibitions and conferences, the theme of the Mediterranean Diet has been deepened as the backbone of living well in the Land of Marca. It is not just a simple fair of local food products, but a micro cosmos where the philosophy of the? Mediterranean Diet? takes shape: smelling, savoring and living the healthy style that has characterized the populations of the area for centuries.
L? The initiative, promoted by the Piceno Laboratory of the Mediterranean Diet and by the Municipality of Montegiorgio, was divided into moments of meeting with the participating exhibitors and comparison conferences through the very interesting conferences.
The Mediterranean Diet is not a simple food, but much more. It promotes l? social interaction and gave rise to a remarkable body of knowledge, songs, maxims, tales and legends. The Diet is based on respect for the territory and biodiversity, and guarantees the conservation and development of traditional activities and trades related to fishing and agriculture in the Mediterranean communities.
One of the main ingredients of the Mediterranean Diet is l? extra virgin olive oil, of which our land represents one? national excellence.

Il Saltarello: tradition and folklore

saltarello-mare-marche-1.jpg
Marche is a territory full of stories and traditions. Folkloristic groups are certainly a very important part of it and Saltarello is one of the best examples.
The Saltarello is a traditional courtship dance that spread in Central Italy, particularly in the Marche. There is no single version of the saltarello, because each area has created its own variant and its own choreography. It is a dance that is done in pairs, with rare forms of dance in fours or in a circle.
The saltarello derives from the Latin word saltatio , a sacred Roman dance, which the Salii priests performed during certain holidays and important occasions for the community. The ancient origins of the saltatio are proved by the fact that the Salii priests, during their performances, wore costumes that recalled the clothing of the ancient Central-Italic warriors of the VIII century BC
The archaeological finds in the Marche testify that the Piceni had an armed dance ritual, in all probability previous or at least coeval, to that used by the Romans. Since the 17th century the saltarello has established itself as the main traditional dance of central Italy. Its local variants are still practiced and known today. As for the instruments, the saltarello is danced accompanied by the accordion and tambourine.
The saltarello still contains the soul of those who live in the Piceno : its steps and its music are not a simple dance, but a way of understanding life, of exorcising evil and celebrating the fullness that only love for Nature can testify. Dancing the saltarello is a way to understand where we come from, who we continue to be, where we can go.
The beauty of our territory, to discover and visit!

Our area, always at the forefront of tourism, is no different. Together with the various dog shows that are organized every year by our countries (Fermo, Porto Sant 'Elpidio and Sant' Elpidio a Mare), the municipal administrations are creating more and more free areas for dog access and the structures are always organizing and specializing more for the welcome. Also l? ARCI Caccia CSAA Sez. Cinofilia Regione Marche will organize in our region at least four events of the national championship of the national dog show in 2018.

Monte Rinaldo..art and history!

tempio-della-cuma-mare-marche.jpeg
In La Cuma di Monte Rinaldo, in the middle valley of the Aso river, there is one of the most suggestive archaeological sites in all the Marche. Here, in 1957, the architectural remains of an important Hellenistic sanctuary from the late Republican era were identified, still today subject to archaeological research by scholars.
A porch originally 66 m long and divided into two naves by a double row of tuff columns of different heights (four Ionic with capitals in Italic Ionic order and seven external Doric) was found of the structure, the foundations of a wall with large blocks of tuff delimiting the sacred area, a well, channels and a water system. In the west part of the portico there is a rectangular room of uncertain destination with three Ionic columns between two pilasters while in the front part you can see the foundations of the temple which was to be raised on a podium. Together with the remains of the structure, several clay cladding slabs and terracotta figures in high relief were also found, which must have belonged to the front decoration of the temple. It remains uncertain what is the historical and archaeological context in which to be able to insert the complex as the divinity to which it was dedicated even if the presence of different elements such as the well, the channels etc. they would suggest a relationship with Sanatio's water-related rituals.

This year, for the 60th anniversary of the first discoveries, excavation activities have resumed after decades of arrest, which have allowed to bring to light and catalog new finds and historical evidence. Among the new findings, the presence of architectural terracotta decorations with numerous traces of color still lively and well preserved is noteworthy.

As always our territory is rich in many of its facets, and is the ideal place to enjoy a beach holiday immersed in history!

Petritoli: "There are those who say ... YES"

petritoli-matrimonio-mare-marche.jpg
The small village of Petritoli of about 2500 inhabitants in the province of Fermo, has been in the limelight for a few years for a? particular attitude: it is the destination chosen every year by dozens of foreign couples to celebrate their wedding.
It all started almost by chance thanks to some tour operators from northern Europe, residing in Petritoli, who after the wedding of a couple of young Germans publicized the event and the place even beyond national borders. The success was incredible and the requests came immediately, also taking advantage of l? impulse dell? municipal administration that created ad hoc regulations to make the most suggestive spaces of the village available.
For five years, to pronounce the fateful yes, they have come to this village from all over the world: Europe, Russia, Australia, United States, New Zealand, China. They are the "wedding immigrants". So far a hundred couples, with a minimum of fifty guests each.
In the surroundings of Petritoli, in addition, a large group of foreigners has purchased countryside ruins in recent years which have been then renovated for short or long stays and the foreign community has become the protagonist of a festival that is held annually in which the typical features are enhanced of their countries in an interesting exchange involving the entire Petritolese community made up of Italians and foreigners. Also very interesting is the stable initiative during the year of the aperitifs in which free groups meet to practice the English and Italian language in an informal meeting that favors the community cohesion of the country.
This unexpected phenomenon has revitalized life and l? Petritoli economy, giving impetus to the birth of new commercial activities. A beautiful example of how ideas and initiatives from below, when they are also supported by municipal administrations, can lead to great results.

A holiday in the Marche region at our Residence Casabianca can make you discover the beauty of this area , its itineraries and the hidden events of a living community.
