The Marches is in central Italy, as wonderful as unusual for their diversity of landscapes and territory. Expanses of orchards and vineyards on the Picentine hills and in the Esino Valley surround farmhouses with ancient warmth where you can rediscover the simple taste of genuine products. Noble houses or old sharecropping houses used as farmhouses tell the story of life in the past, and welcome travellers and tourists in search of authentic emotions.
The city of Ancona is at one with the sea and the port. Founded by the Syracusans, precisely because of the natural shelter provided by Mount Conero, it has always been deeply linked to its unique geographical position.
The Marches is one of the most industrialized regions in Italy. The entrepreneurial activity is mainly characterized by small family businesses.
The primary sector, predominant until the Second World War, is now marginal in its contribution to the regional economy. The sector of small and medium industries and trade is the real engine of the economy of Marche region, in addition to the presence of large petrochemical industries and the production of household appliances.
