Since 2005 twice a year, in Springtime and in Fall, the FAMILIES of a few localities in the MARCHE Region (central Italy), open up the doors of their HOUSES to host NEW FRIENDS for dinner and to share with them, around the table, words and stories.
‘DINNERS AT HOME‘ (Le Cene in Famiglia) have become, in the past years, the HEART of an UNPRECEDENTED TRAVEL EXPERIENCE, told throughout a net of institutions, enterprises, accomodation facilities, associations and citizens, coordinated by tourism and culture professionals.
Travellers are hosted in selected B2B and are invited to DISCOVER the TERRITORY with the guide of CITIZENS who help them unveil unknown aspectes and hidden treasures of Italy.
At the end of the guided tours, guests may DINE in ONE of the HOUSES of the MANY FAMILIES who JOINED the PROJECT: tradition’s recipes become the occasion to EXPERIENCE the most AUTHENTIC ITALIAN HOSPITALITY.
WHERE and WHEN:
Pesaro and neighbouring villages (between the Adriatic coast and the hinterland hills) – From April 24th to April 27th 2014
In the Piceno Lands (southern Marche) – From May 9th to May 11th 2014
COME AND TASTE OUR HOSPITALITY. Where Lemons Blossom will be there!

What a great idea….and wonderful photographs!
Have you ever been to Italy?
No, never…but I’ve always wanted to go. Your blog allows me to vicariously enjoy the warmth and beauty, and I thank you for that!
And I thank you for the touching portrait of your sister Nita. It’s strong and lively people like her that we all wish to have around. I found it very touching that you devoted a Valentine’s Day post to your sister.
Grazie e, grazie a Nita!
Thank you for reading, and for your kindness!
Sounds brilliant, I recall you writing a post on this last year… in the next few years, I plan to do this in Spring or Autumn. Just got to get a few things out of the way first!
Yes, you remember well! I am a total fan of the event ‘Un paese e cento storie’ and I never fail to attend it.
If you come to Italy, I will be more than glad to give you some good tips. Who knows, maybe you’ll manage to come for the ‘Dinners at home’ 😉
That’s my plan!
