How strange life is! I’m going to tell you about a surprising place in Le Marche, that I was able to discover thanks to some dear friends from Texas, Terry and Neil.
The Duartes have just come back from a travel in Le Marche and Terry, knowing that I would myself have been back to Italy soon, advised a visit to Montemarciano.
Here’s what she wrote to me:
“I know the charm of the hills in Montemarciano, a town that gives a wonderful view of the Adriatic Sea, as well as the extraordinary landscape of the Apennines and Monte San Vito.”
…and so, I visited the Agostinellis!
I cannot tell you what I was most impressed with by this delightful family the other day.
Probably the taste of homemade ‘tagliatelle’ pasta, the same recipe my grandmother used to make every Sunday when my family got together. Then we used to spend all the day chatting and telling how life was going.
Or maybe something about the warm hospitality with which Dilva and Giancarlo welcome their guests. Or, even the extraordinary feeling of spending a few hours as we used to do long ago.
I have no doubt: besides the quietness and the beauty of the scenery surrounding “Casa Agostinelli” (aka, Agostinellis’ Home), besides the authentic taste of meals, it is the vibe you breath here that struck me most!
I felt like being back to the old days, when spending quality time together while sharing thoughts and opinions was one of the most enjoyable time!
Today my thanks go to the Duartes for the great advice and to the Agostinellis, who made me realise that certain values still exist.
