Not only is most of this enchanting towntraffic-free, but much of it has not changed for centuries. For example,to the south of Via dei Soderini and to the west of Via delleTorri is a whole mass of narrow cobbled streets whosemedieval fabric and spirit are almost perfectly intact.Nearby, the Palazzetto dei Longobardi is as near as youcan get to an untouched medieval town house; whilst the blocks of travertine stone on the 35-metre high Torre degliErcolani beside it are so fresh they could have been cut yesterday... www.paoloconsorti.com- March 29, 2:45 AM

A family of organic farmers outsideUrbino is trying to change that as all the "FATTORIEDIDATTICHE" of the Region. “Children think that when you take milk of the cow, it is cold, not hot, because they always take cold milk from the fridge,” says MonserratPodgornik, the mother of the family. She believes childrenshould understand that when a calf drinks milk, “it has to be hot in the natural way like your mama, no?”marcheatopictour.wordpress.com- March 25, 7:48 AM
Mondavio’s castle
is preserved very well, and it alsocontains a wax museum, where late medieval scenesare reproduced in a perfect setting. We are again inthe area of 
Machiavelli
’s “The prince”, not far fromMontefeltro, the region of 
Urbino
, where Raphael was born. Mondavio is a perfect location, as it is equally distantto the sea and to the mountains, just across Ancona’sprovince. In 1462 this place saw its greatest battle, between the
Malatesta
family, ruling over the coastline between today’s Marche and Emilia-Romagna, and the Vatican-backed
Montefeltro
family from Urbino, whichcontrolled an area across Marche and Umbria. The Vatican won, and Mondavio was given to the
Della Rovere
family, which had connected with the Montefeltro, whoseGuidobaldo was however attacked by “Il Valentino”,Machiavelli’s infamous “prince”. With the end of the DellaRovere dynasty, Mondavio became officially under the jurisdiction of the
 Vatican
, which kept it so until the unity of Italy.lemarchetours.blogspot.it- March 23, 6:40 AMThe cave on the northern slopes of 
Monte Acuto

Cingoli
. Today one canclamber down the steep slope on sets of wooden andtravertine steps to the place of stone and solitude where
Santa Sperandia
spent so many years of Benedictinepenitence. Just getting down there in the 1200s musthave been an ordeal, never mind how one might survivein such an environment. More than a mere visionary, she was also renowned for her ability to perform miracles,and is best known for her act of producing fresh cherriesto some hungry labourers one cold and snowy January.She died in 1276, and her incorrupt body now lies in statein the Sanctuary dedicated to her in Cingoli, where sheis the town's patron saint.
