One village and a hundred stories: Marche, at home
Since 2005, twice a year, families from several Marche towns open their homes up to new friends for dinner, to exchange words and stories. Through the years, the family dinners have become the heart of a new travel experience, woven through a network of public administrations, businesses, accomodations, associations and citizens coordinated by tourism and culture professionals.
Travellers are hosted in selected B&Bs and led to the discovery of the territory by its own inhabitants: testimonials who can reveal hidden treasures and overlooked details. Itineraries end with a family dinner in the home of one of the many families who have joined the project: traditional recipes are thus a means to taste the most authentic culture of italian hospitality.
