La Via Maestra in the RIVIERA DEL CONERO
"La Via Maestra" could not fail to travel along one of the most important tourist resorts in the Marche: The Riviera del Conero, whose brand of the Association has recently been modified with the addition of the caption: "Colli dell'Infinto" to enhance also the important villages in the area.
It is precisely on these that our itinerary wants to dwell because, in addition to the sea characterized by the splendid green setting of the Conero Regional Natural Park, the Riviera has places of the caliber of Loreto, Recanati, Castelfidardo, Osimo, Offagna but also the municipalities of Agugliano, Polverigi, Camerano, small jewels together with seaside resorts such as Porto Recanati and Porto Potenza. As the “Colli dell'Infinito” brand recalls, we are here in a territory rich in history and culture. Recanati, Leopardi's hometown offers the opportunity to visit his native house, without neglecting museums where paintings such as Lorenzo Lotto's "Annunciation" are exhibited. The Conero has a unique coastline, a beautiful setting overlooking a sea of crystal clear waters. The coastal strip south of Ancona is an expanse of still pristine white beaches. The more solitary coves and the wild beaches reachable by sea alternate with more easily accessible and equipped beaches, up to the Lido di Marcelli, with numerous services and lots of fun. A sea for all tastes and needs in one of the most popular Italian locations abroad.
Loreto , famous all over the world for the presence of the Marian Sanctuary, does not need any introduction, also in this city you can find all the unique works of the artisans of La Via Maestra at the Emporium The Via Maestra . Do not forget the fortified villages such as Offagna which belongs to the circuit of the "Most beautiful villages in Italy", Osimo with its underground caves and Castelfidardo center of handicraft production of the accordion. Among the typical products we remember the "Rosso Conero" for which in the summer months a village festival takes place in Camerano . The Riviera also offers seafood dishes and recipes with local products, including the Slow Food presidium “Mosciolo di Portonovo”.
The Conero Riviera is full of master craftsmen to discover in their workshops or shops. In Castelfidardo we find high quality accordions edited by Tonino Alessandrini in the smallest details to satisfy all professionals in the sector, not only from an aesthetic point of view but above all for high musical performances. For paper to Recanati Giaconi Editore , to Sirolo Breccia Roberto and Osimo the innovative artisan production by Galassi Roberto In Loreto , in the heart of the Basilica, we will find the religious craftsmanship of Lal . In nearby Ancona i Fratelli Ulisse for processing of metal, Paolo Greco for woodworking and Pellicceria Lucilla which has also been selling fur garments since 1963. Also in Ancona and its province it is possible to find Master craftsmen and unique excellences of Goldsmiths and Jewelers of the “La Via Maestra” circuit.
