Il suo nome deriva dal tedesco Mark, e sta ad indicare “territori di frontiera sottoposti alla giurisdizione di un marchese”, e come territorio di confine, Le Marche distinguevano il confine del Sacro Romano Impero.
Abitate dai Piceni nell’età del ferro, la regione fu scenario di varie invasioni che portarono notevoli diversità nelle cinque provincie del territorio, distinte tutte nelle loro differenti individualità.

In English, this region is also known as the Marches. The name of the region derives from the German language “Mark”, and it refers to “all the border territories under the jurisdiction of a marquis”. Thanks to the border location of its territory, Le Marche marked the border to the Holy Roman Empire.
During the Iron Age period, the region was the home of the “Piceni” population and it was often invaded. Due to all those invasions each area was influenced differently and could be divided in five main districts, which were very different from each other and had specific peculiarities of their own.
