2012 Verdicchio di Matelica, La Monacesca, Marche
2012 Verdicchio di Matelica, La Monacesca, Marche, Italy (£10.99, Waitrose). A little richer and more structured than many Verdicchios, this is a beautiful, greengage and honeysuckle-scented white with a lovely texture and oodles of class. I always compare this famous style of Italian wine to Chablis, but this particular version has the finesse of a Premier Cru Chablis, for half the price!

Discover the Joys of the Rural Life in Le Marche
I don’t get too crazy about organized tours. But this one is different. It puts you smack in the center of rural life in a place few tourists know. Big tour companies couldn’t do a tour like this because the average tourist doesn’t know the destination well enough to fill their humongous buses. Plus, you can’t say, “Envy me, I’m going to a small town called Mercatello in Le Marche!” People would look at you and wonder why you don’t go where everyone else is going, then ask you which country Le Marche might be found in. But you know, right?
Eat with an all-male gourmet society, learn how to make hand-stamped fabric designs out of common rust, make your own paper, and stay in a great villa; these are a few of the things we elaborate on in: Discover Rural Italy: A Le Marche Tour Like No Other.

Italian Food’s Growing Popularity in the U.S.
The surge in Italian food imports is due to the fact that Americans have become more health conscious and have realized that Italian products are not only good, but also very healthy.
"The increase is due to the fact that consumers have gained some sort of educational food knowledge for them to fall in love with Italian products," said Lucio Caputo, president of the Italian Wine and Food Institute of New York City.
In addition, genuiness and freshness have become the significant keys for consumers. This has helped the imports of particular products a lot, and Italian food commands the market share with more than 50 percent, in areas such as oil, cheese, and pasta.
In fact, pasta (with 30.2 percent in the sector) is the leading import, along with the olive oil (with 50.2 percent of the market) and with cheese that reached the 26.7 percent. During the fiscal years 1998-2007, according to the Department of Commerce, Italy and France were the two top cheese sources for the U.S.
"Americans want Italian pasta, especially those that have different colors," said John Blount, owner of Italian Harvest located in San Francisco, who has been importing Italian food since 2000. "They also love white pasta that has different shapes because they find them to be more amusing." […]

Sculpture stolen in Le Marche thirty years ago is found in Venice
In the fall of 1984, the large wooden sculpture “Madonna delle Grazie” was stolen from the small church of San Lorenzo in Rio Freddo, Visso in the province Macerata. Now thirty years later the Police Department for the protection of cultural heritage have located and seized the statue in an antique shop in Venice. Fortunately, the pastor of the church Norcia had taken many photos of the churches in the area back in the sixties for the extensive art volume “Visso and its valleys” which was published in 1965.In the book there was a brief description of the church in Rio Freddo and a photo with the wooden statue of the Virgin. Thanks to this photograph the officials were able to identify and locate the sculpture. Unfortunately, the arms of the sculptures were destroyed during the years, but the rest of the artwork is in a good condition. […]

Country Music Le Marche Style - Paul Aster and the Fellows
Strange as though it might seem, Italy does have quite a vibrant, and growing, country music scene. You never know, the next Johnny Cash or Shania Twain might be an Italian. Someone like Paul Aster, perhaps? You can hear some of his country music here folks.
