Best Le Marche Accommodation: Casale Monastero sul Colle, Montelparo

See on Scoop.it - Vacanza In Italia - Vakantie In Italie - Holiday In Italy

Almost halfway between the Adriatic coast and the mountains of the Sibillini National Park is a gracious rural retreat that features four luxury suites and sleeps 8 people. Casale Monastero sul Colle is a villa for rent situated in the heart of Italy’s spectacular Marche countryside on a promontory high above the vineyards and orchards of the Aso Valley, looking across to three medieval hilltop towns – Force, Santa Vittoria in Matenano, and Montelparo. In the distance, the Sibillini Mountains offer snow-clad views in the winter, glorious wildflowers in the spring, and shimmering grandeur through the summer haze.

The home was named for a small group of Farfa Monks who were thought to once live in this very property. The Farfa are a Benedictine Order that first came to Le Marche at the end of the 9th century when they fled the onslaught of the Saracens and settled in the Fermo region. […]

Aussies discover Abruzzo | Italy's hidden gourmet trail

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

"Hiking the hills of Abruzzo is a stroll through a fine menu, writes Andrew Bain."

Two-thirds of the little-visited region, which claims to be the greenest in Europe, is mountainous, and it’s protected by more national parks - than any other region in the country. Bears and wolves roam its mountains, which are the highest in Italy outside the Alps.

It’s a region best seen on foot and I’ve come to hike, which is really an excuse to eat. Abruzzo’s food is as undiscovered as its lands, with the region’s historical isolation reflected in its cuisine, which is far from typically Italian.[…]

University of New Hampshire: Ascoli Piceno Campus

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

Study in the humanities and social sciences at the UNH-in-Italy campus in Ascoli-Piceno, Italy.

A beautiful medieval city in the province of the Marches, Ascoli Piceno is an unspoiled provincial capital, enjoying much of the cultural richness and vibrancy of larger cities, while preserving the charm and authenticity of a medieval city off the usual tourist itinerary.

It is a piece of the real Italy that few foreigners ever see, and provides participants with an authentic Italian experience, while still keeping them well connected to national and European transportation networks.

Letta vraagt Italiaanse Kamer om vertrouwen

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

De Italiaanse Kamer van Afgevaardigden staat in meerderheid achter het coalitiekabinet van premier Enrico Letta. Bij een stemming in de Tweede Kamer van het Zuid-Europese land zeiden 379 parlementsleden woensdag ‘ja’ tegen de regering-Letta en 212 parlementariërs ‘nee’.

President Giorgio Napolitano had erop aangedrongen na te gaan of de regering nog het vertrouwen geniet van de volksvertegenwoordiging, nadat ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi vorige maand met een grote groep aanhangers de regeringscoalitie had verlaten.

Ascoli Piceno, Caffè Meletti and the Aperol Spritz Recipe

See on Scoop.it - La Cucina Italiana - De Italiaanse Keuken - The Italian Kitchen

The Aperol Spritz became my particular aperitivo of choice while in Italy. The biggest city near my father’s home town was called Ascoli Piceno in the Marche region (you’ll hear more about the beauty of Marche and the stay at my dad’s hometown in a later post). And in Ascoli Piceno within the Piazza del Popolo (square of the people) there stands Caffe Melletti, a bar opened in 1907 which represents the Art Nouveau style beautifully. Heritage listed and still as charming as the day it was opened, it was here at Caffee Melletti that my love of the Aperol aperitivo was born

Dreaming of it ever since leaving Italy, I am delighted to share my recipe for Aperol Spritz for you to enjoy.

It is a perfect drink to start off your Christmas day feast this year. Especially for those of us who celebrate a Christmas and New Year’s beside the beach!

APEROL SPRITZ - Serves one

Ice cubes50ml Aperol75ml Prosecco (Italian sparkling)Soda Water (to top up)1 slice orange

Add Aperol to a large glass filled with ice, then add Prosecco. Stir together and top up with Soda water and add orange.

NB. If making a jug, first determine how many glasses the jug will fill, then increase the quantities accordingly.

Mario Balotelli en Fanny Neguesha zijn uit elkaar, zo melden Italiaanse media. Exact één jaar nadat de Italiaanse spits een relatie was begonnen met het Brusselse model, zette Super Mario er een punt achter. In april gingen de twee al even uit elkaar, maar maakten het snel weer goed.
