To Siena to See the Door to Heaven | Tuscan Traveler

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Experience the extraordinary opening of the Porta del Cielo (Door of Heaven) – or, at least, Siena’s version of it. From April 6 to October 27, 2013, if you happen to visit Siena, don’t miss this spectacular opportunity.

For the first time, after extensive renovation, it will be possible to take a tour of the walkways in the vault of the Duomo of Siena. Internal passages, balconies (both inside and outside) and hidden attic spaces will be open to small, guided groups. Until now, these parts of the Cathedral were accessible only to the architects and builders in charge of maintaining the structure over the centuries.

The two massive towers on each side of the façade of the Duomo house spiral staircases that lead up into the roof where there is a series of walkways and rooms that provide astonishing views of both the interior of the Duomo and the city of Siena outside.

You will be able to look down onto the marble intarsia floor of the main nave and understand its design in a way that until now could only be done through photographs. You will be able to traverse the walkway over the main altar and almost reach out and touch Duccio di Buoninsegna’s stained glass rose window. Finally, you will be able to walk along the balcony inside the dome of the cathedral from which there is a fabulous view of the high altar.

Piazza del Popolo, Ascoli Piceno negli anni 70

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Un video di archivio riguardante la bellissima Piazza del Popolo sita in Ascoli Piceno.

Recentemente Piazza del popolo è stata inserita tra le 8 piazze più belle d’italia.

“Un angolo poco distante dal Meletti è il punto di ritrovo dei giovani della destra nostalgica, dei giovani fasci. Dal lato opposto lungo le nicchie e gli scalini di san francesco si incontrano i friic i devianti dalla norma dei comportamenti cittadini consacrati. Davanti alla Standa i giovani delfini della borghesia, in gran parte studenti del liceo classico. Davanti al bar petrillo i capannelli più impegnati i giovani della sinistra vecchia e nuova stretti tra le grandi ambizioni di cambiamento e le necessita di un difficile inserimento produttivo”

Marche Travel Guide by Eupedia.com

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

Situated between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennines, the Marche (or Marches in English) is a pleasant agricultural region bordering San Marino and Emilia-Romagna to the north, Abruzzo to the south, and Umbria to the west. It was originally named for the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo.

The region’s star attraction is the walled city of Urbino, which flourished during the Renaissance, and has justifiably been recognised as a World Heritage Site.

Famous people from the Marches include (chronologically): the Roman politician Pompey, the Renaissance painter and architect Raphael, the Enlightenment writer and philosopher Giacomo Leopardi, the composer Gioachino Rossini, the educator Maria Montessori, and the motorcycle champion Valentino Rossi.

Marchigian cuisine is fairly disparate and traditional. It is particularly famous for its brodetti, fish stews typical of the Adriatic coast that have constitued an essential part of fishermen’s diet since ancient times. In Ancona, the regional capital and main seaport, you will find the brodetto all’Anconetana, a thick tomato-based stew made with 13 different types of fish and shellfish. Traditionally these usually include red mullet, scorpion fish, turbot, cuttlefish, squid, shrimps, langoustine, mussels, and clams, but ultimately depends on what’s available at the market.

Other culinary specialties from the Marches include brodetto di Porto Recanati (fish stew flavoured with wild saffron), brodetto di San Benedetto del Tronto (fish stew with green tomatoes and sweet green pepper), olive ascolane (olives stuffed with ground prosciutto and pecorino cheese, and sometimes eggs or tomatoes, then battered and fried - specialty of Ascoli Piceno), passatelli all’urbinate (spinach and meat dumplings - specialty of Urbino), and vincisgrassi (lasagne made with onions, mushrooms, veal or chicken liver in a Béchamel sauce - specialty of Macerata).

The Marches have an abundance of cured meats such as coppa (aka capicolo; dry-cured whole pork shoulder or neck), ciauscolo (smoked and dry-cured pork sausage), mazzafegato di Fabriano (mortadella made from fat and lean pork with liver and lung), prosciutto del Montefeltro (smoked dry-cured ham made from black pigs with vinegar and ground black pepper), salame lardellato (sausage made of lean pork shoulder with diced bacon, salt, pepper, and whole peppercorns).

The province of Pesaro is Italy’s biggest truffle producer, especially renowned for the rare and expensive white truffles.

There are 12 DOC or 5 DOCG wines in the Marches, although most of them are little known outside of Italy. The Marches produces 2 million hectolitres of wine annually, 20% of which is DOC(G). The region is best known for its crip, refreshing white wines, such as Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi, which has been called the best wine for fish in Europe, and Verdicchio di Matelica. The Verdicchio owes its name to the slight green hue of the wine made from this grape variety.

Maserati Ghibli: nu helemaal officieel (update) | AutoItalia.nl

We hebben het bericht dat Maserati morgen de nieuwe Ghibli zal presenteren amper gepubliceerd of we kunnen de eerste afbeeldingen van de nieuwe E-segmenter uit Italië al tonen. Inmiddels helemaal officieel en via de officiële kanalen van Maserati zelf.

Het is gelijk duidelijk dat de nieuwe Ghibli een stuk compacter oogt dan de forse Quattroporte. De balans in de vormgeving spreekt ons, afgaande op deze eerste afbeeldingen, erg aan en we kunnen dan ook niet wachten om de Ghibli in het echt te zien.

Centro Internazionale Studi Emigrazione Italiana: Researching Your Italian Origins On-Line

See on Scoop.it - Good Things From Italy - Le Cose Buone d’Italia

During the past 150 years of Italian unification, over 30 million people have left Italy. Setting out to make their fortunes overseas, this massive diaspora found Italian’s settling in Northern Europe, North and South America, and Australia.

The hub of this migration was the port of Genoa, where departing Italian families set out for new world destinations. As the principle location in Italy’s migration history, Genoa was a fitting home for CISEI (Centro Internazionale Studi Emigrazione Italiana), the International Centre of Italian Emigration Studies.

CISEI was formally established in 2006 but began the task of cataloguing emigration documents in early 2004. The documents are essential to realise its aim to collect has much information about each expatriate as possible. The collected data create the most comprehensive archive of Italian emigration and the database is now available online.

Recreating passengers’ embarkation lists from the Port of Genoa from 1876 to 1925 is no small task. Between 1876 and 1901, nearly 2 million people departed through the Port of Genoa, with another 1.7 million embarking between 1902 and 1925. With a small dropoff during World War II, Italian emigration continued at a steady pace until the 1970s.

CISEI has established relationships with various international institutions to share and consolidate information. […]

Experts estimate that there are 50 million people in the world today with at least one-eight Italian blood. The monumental work of CISEI will ensure that these members of the Italian community will be able to investigate their family background from anywhere on the planet. Read More

2 meisjes (15) wurgen man in de Italiaanse stad Udine: "Hij wilde ons verkrachten"

See on Scoop.it - La Gazzetta Di Lella - News From Italy - Italiaans Nieuws

De Italiaanse stad Udine is opgeschrikt door een verkrachtingszaak die tot een moord heeft geleid. Twee vijftienjarige meisjes wurgden de 67-jarige Mirco Sacher nadat hij hen wilde verkrachten. Dat is tenminste de versie van de tienermeisje die het slachtoffer kenden. De politie wacht de autopsie en het verdere onderzoek af om zeker te zijn of die verklaring klopt. Het lijk van Sacher werd alvast met zijn broek op zijn enkels aangetroffen in een afgelegen veld in een buitenwijk van Udine. Bovendien werden op de borst van een van de meisje sporen aangetroffen die op een handgemeen kunnen wijzen. Anderzijds is er een groot gat in het tijdsgebruik van de studentes.
