Le Marche is the only italian region with a plural name: the plural of Marca, originally referring to the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo whose territories are part of today's region of Le Marche. Being it by chance or the inevitable result of a diversity of cultures and traditions, the truth is that Le Marche offer a unique plurality of atmospheres, landscapes, talents. Each of the 5 provinces in the region spans from the adriatic coast to the mountains, all passing by the harmony and the calm of ancient towns built throughout an uninterrupted series of hills and valleys.
