June in Senigallia

June 14, 2010 / Local Interest
Senigallia, Le Marche
capretteIf only one had a Euro for every time someone has exclaimed, “How wonderful it must be to live in Italy!” Oh, it’s wonderful, but sometimes the lack of parking, the baffling politics, the maze that is Italian bureaucracy, the questionable taxes and the times when you just need an aspirin but the pharmacy is closed ‘till 4:00 pm . . . well, sometimes living in Italy is not the same as visiting. Then again, other times, especially in June, driving up and down the hilly and winding country roads in the Marche region surrounding Senigallia, it’s truly magical.

In the early morning especially you are confronted with scenes from Italian country life that are chicken soup for the soul: the yellow ginestre flowers, the fields of sunflowers, and the hills, the bright blue sea, the wildlife, the chickens and the goats, even the impossibly large farming equipment trying to drive down the same minuscule road you’re driving up…

Sure, roosters crow quite early and quite loudly, and have certainly received quite a few death-by-poison threats as they regale all with their morning cock-a-doodle-doos. But the neighborhood also has everything else, from children taking a walk with their mamme to senior citizens getting out their tape measures as they are down to the wire on their game of bocce… on that haphazard court that overlooks the gorgeous Adriatic Sea.

Che meraviglia, really.  June in Senigallia is full of wonder.

    Geat note. My family and I lived in Italy for three years and dealt with the quirks of the bureaucracy and customs. We consider our time there to be the best time of our life. Italy is a beautiful country and the people are wonderful. Best of all, insipte of the bureaucratic maze, life is somewhat simpler and slower than it is in the US and very refreshing. My 80 year old father came to live with us there for a year. When he left, He was only 79. Life is good in Italia.

    Senigallia has the largest outdoor market I have seen anywhere, including Guadalajara. You could buy anything–even the kitchen sink.
