Have you ever smuggled delicious pancetta home from Italy? The ban on importing salumi, at least some of it, has been lifted.
According to The New York Times, this is not a simple free-for-all. It isn’t quite clear what the requirements will be for cured meats brought to the United States from Italy. But one thing is certain. We food lovers here in the U.S.A. will see more variety on our antipasti plate, and I can’t wait.
I can’t wait to host a gathering to celebrate the arrival of more variety. Now I just need to choose the perfect dry rose wine and olives to complement the feast. Salute!

The religious tourism in Italy is in good health.
The first motivation for this type of tourism is driven by faith, but also artistic and cultural charm of churches, convents, churches, monasteries, shrines and holy places and it is evident how the promotion of religious tours enhance the area in terms of tourism.
The excellence among all the religious destinations in Le Marche Region, with around 4 million of visitors every year, is certainly the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto,
This is just the most important attraction of the religious tourism in Le Marche, but, as for Italy, almost every city, has holy places of importance for the faith and cultural interest. The large number of holy places in Le Marche, you can see in the list below, demonstrate the great tourism potential the Region can develop with an accurate policy of promotion.
This kind of tourism in general is organized in Group of travellers that share moments of pray and reflection together.
In general a religious person, a priest or the pastor, organize the whole trip, deciding accommodations, transports and services.
Nowadays, travel agencies and tour operators, independently, promote trips collecting together people of different community of believers.
The facilities chosen for religious travels, especially in Le Marche, are convents, monasteries, abbeys or specific holiday homes managed by religious organizations, offering food and accommodation at affordable prices.
It is desirable that hospitality and tourist operators of Le Marche collaborate together with the existing religious structures as this works to develop a market that doesn’t know crisis and seasonality.
Just believe it.

Although it has taken more than 400 years, the sainthood cause of Jesuit Father Matteo Ricci, the 16th-century missionary to China, is back on track.
Bishop Claudio Giuliodori, apostolic administrator of the Diocese of Macerata, Italy, where Fr. Ricci was born in 1552, formally closed the diocesan phase of the sainthood process May 10. The cause now moves to the Congregation for Saints’ Causes at the Vatican.
Bishop Giuliodori had met Pope Francis, a Jesuit, at the Vatican the first week of May. He wrote in the Macerata diocesan newspaper, “I never imagined I’d be able to speak about the cause of Fr. Matteo Ricci with a Jesuit pope. After the great attention given by Benedict XVI, who never missed an occasion to encourage us to promote the cause, we now have the joy of placing it into the hands of a Jesuit.” […]

Super-fun letters made using tender chicken breast, breaded and oven baked. For all occasions: enjoy as a snack, during a party with friends, or as a fun and healthy dinner.
Breaded chicken breast bites, a tasty and healthy meal ready in 8 minutes in a pan or 10 in the oven or 7 in the toaster.
To guarantee the pureness, taste and especially the delicacy of its products, Fileni has been developing new methods of preparation inspired by traditional techniques for some time now.
Today, Fileni is the first company to offer its customers chicken escalopes that have been oven baked rather than fried.
Baking (rather than frying at 180/190°C) makes the food easy to digest, while preserving its great smell, taste and look, as well its healthiness. The process results in a low fat, crispy and very tasty product.
Saint Emygdius (d. c. 309 AD) was a Christian bishop who is venerated as a martyr. Tradition states that he was killed during the persecution of Diocletian.
His legend states that he was a pagan of Trier who became a Christian. He traveled to Rome and cured the paralytic daughter of his host Gratianus, who had let him stay with him at his house on Tiber Island. Gratianus’ family then converted to Christianity.
Emygdius also cured a blind man. The people of Rome believed him to be the son of Apollo and carried him off by force to the Temple of Aesculapius on the island in the Tiber, where he cured many of the sick. Emygdius declared himself a Christian, however, and tore down the pagan altars and smashed into pieces a statue of Aesculapius. He also converted many to Christianity; this enraged the prefect of the city.
He was made a bishop by Pope Marcellus I (or Pope Marcellinus), and sent to Ascoli Piceno.
On his way to Ascoli, Emydgius made more conversions, and performed a miracle where he made water gush out of a mountain after striking a cliff. Polymius, the local governor, attempted to convince Emygdius to worship Jupiter and the goddess Angaria, the patroness of Ascoli. Polymius also offered him the hand of his daughter Polisia. Instead Emygdius baptized her as a Christian in the waters of the Tronto, along with many others.
Enraged, Polymius decapitated him on the spot now occupied by the Sant’Emidio Red Temple, as well as his followers Eupolus (Euplus), Germanus, and Valentius (Valentinus). Emygdius stood up, carried his own head to a spot on a mountain where he had constructed an oratory (the site of the present-day Sant’Emidio alla Grotte). After Emygdius’ martyrdom, his followers attacked Polymius’ palace and pulled it down.

Verdicchio is a crisp Italian white grape that makes wines with “considerable personality” (The World Atlas of Wine). You’ll find it in the Marche (pronounced “mar-kay”) region along the Adriatic coast. Unlike most Italian whites, it’s known for its ability to age, and the best offer a nutty, buttery complexity. Conti Leopardi, acclaimed at the 2011 International Wine & Spirit Competition, was crafted by a noble family who have made wine in the Marche since 1500.
The Leopardi’s vineyards are located more than 1,100 feet above sea level, where brilliant sunshine, the cooling influence from the Adriatic and low-yielding ancient vines produce aromatic, intensely flavored Verdicchio grapes. Thanks to its proximity to the sea, the Marche is a top spot for fresh seafood. So locally, this elegant white — with notes of citrus, minerals, almonds and fresh herbs (which will also develop a subtle nuttiness over time) — would be enjoyed with simple grilled white fish, shrimp or calamari.
The Leopardi family has a very famous ancestor Giacomo Leopardi, a 19th century poet, is as important to the Italians as Shakespeare is to the English-speaking world.
Giacomo Taldegardo Francesco di Sales Saverio Pietro Leopardi (June 29, 1798 – June 14, 1837) was an Italian poet, essayist, philosopher, and philologist. Although he lived in a secluded town in the ultra-conservative Papal States, he came in touch with the main thoughts of the Enlightenment, and, by his own literary evolution, created a remarkable and renowned poetic work, related to the Romantic era.
