Colors of Marche Region - traditions, festivals, mentality and lifestyle

Marches The first thing you notice about the behavior of the Italians is the desire to enjoy everything in life. The food – without a rush and in a good company, morning – only with a cup of coffee, free time – with family and friends. As in many warm countries, in Italy, they have a siesta time in the middle of the day when mostly all places are closed. Keep in mind this peculiarity about the life in Marche, when planning shopping. It should be mentioned, that for many travelers, especially for those, who came to Marche for the first time, the behavior of the Italians might seem a bit rude.
Marche will be a nice place for those children, who like beaches, calm sea and excursions. There are no big entertaining centers here, but if you want, you can go to the places located in … Open
The locals are always talking emotionally, with lots of gestures. Something that is not of a big deal in most of the countries, there may become a reason for a discontent, which, however, will quickly unravel. It is common here to be polite. Even if you got accidentally pushed, you should apologize first, then, instead of an argument, there will only be an exchange of pleasantries. It is common for the locals to cut lines and cut off a driver or a pedestrian on a narrow road. Such a behavior is a sign of self-confidence and strength, and not the neglecting attitude towards the people around.
The Italians are quite superstitious and religious at the same time. The ladies should remember, that it is bad manners to comb your hair in public. But it doesn’t contradict the men’s habit of publicly rubbing their testicles. Some say, that this protects from bewitchment. Note, that any self-respecting male will totally honestly compliment every girl or a woman he meets. Just because it is common here. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
The cuisine of Marche borrows traditions and courses from the masters of Rimini and Abruzzo but also stands out by its unique approaches at the same time. Its main peculiarity is an unusual … Open
If you came to Marche and want to meet someone, nothing can be simpler. The Italians love to talk, especially with strangers, and not only about the weather or politics and economics news. The topics can be diverse: about the art of Renaissance, the influence of Christianity, or the rise and fall of the expansion of the European chivalry into Asia. You just need to remember, that not all the locals like when spoken to in English, and definitely not everyone speaks it. Although, if you memorize just a couple of phrases in Italian, you will win over almost everyone you talk to.
Keep in mind, that it’s a custom here to dress nicely. Nobody will go for a walk in the park, wearing the same clothes they wear to a restaurant, and vice versa. Remember, that children here are allowed to do anything. If there is a child with you, in almost every café they will bring him a high chair and maybe even give a free ice cream. Italian kids are quite noisy, and you can meet them almost everywhere – from children playgrounds to posh restaurants and boutiques in a shopping center. You should be ready for that. The locals are friendly to tourists and want to get the same in return. Remember, that family plays a big role in the lives of the Italians, and most of thirty-something men still live with their parents.
Marche region is not only famous for its great beaches and fine cuisine. Here you can see the monuments from the times of the Roman Empire, famous Christian cult buildings, and architectural … Open
Many big Italian holidays are connected to Christian commemorations. However, not only Christmas and Easter are hugely celebrated. St. Valentine’s Day, the International Women’s Day, Halloween, and quite exotic holidays like Tree Day and the Day of black cats’ protection are also celebrated here. Wine, sausage, and cheese making dates are a separate line. During the culinary festivals you can learn the secrets of Marche cuisine.
