  • Church of the Death and Cemetery of Mummies, Urbania

    Posted 17 giugno 2014 By in prima pagina With | No Comments
    A trip to the Marche can not rule out a visit to Urbania, the city with the most macabre italian museum: the museum of the “mummies” or better, the cemetery of mummies, enclosed within the Church of the Dead. In the crypt behind the high altar, are exposed 18 naturally mummified bodies.

    The story begins in 1567 when it was founded in Urbania the Brotherhood of the “Good Death.” The statutes of the Brotherhood was composed of as 31 chapters, but the precise purpose of the association was free transportation of corpses, assistance to the dying, the registration of the appropriate books of the dead and the distribution of alms to the relatives of deceased. The burial of the bodies took place in the back of the small church, in a land used as a cemetery.

    In the early 1800s, Napoleon Bonaparte issued an edict which established extraurban cemeteries for health reasons, even in the little cemetery of Urbania work began on the exhumation of the bodies that, incredibly, surfaced intact! In 1833, the 18 mummified bodies found were displayed behind the altar, in the crypt of the chapel, that taken the name of the Church of the Dead.  In the 60s and 70s, some anthropologists and biologists gave a scientific explanation of the phenomenon: it seems that a particular mold in the soil, caused its drying.

    In practice, the bodies, in addition to the skeletal structure, they have the skin, organs, and in some cases the hair, genitals … which are still visible behind the glass wall. The climatic condition of Urbania and the presence of these strange mold, in fact, have meant that the bodies become mummies maintaining internal organs, part of clothes and even hair.

    These mummies belong to humble people and often sick, marginalized by society and which were often violent deaths as you can clearly tell from the marks left on the mummified bodies. Each of the 18 characters hide his dramatic story of death that has been handed down to us and you can imagine the structure and features of the body: the center of the group, the Prior of the Brotherhood of the Good Death, who took care of the accommodation of the dead, Vincenzo Piccini, his wife and son; the mummy of the baker said “Lunano” and the woman who died in childbirth (with the ventral torn in the shape of a cross, clearly visible). Below you will find a young man stabbed in a vigil dancing with the hole of the blade; then the hanged and the buried alive.

    Also National Geographic Channel has made ​​an interesting documentary about these mummies.

  • Il frutto dell’estate : la pesca

    Posted 8 maggio 2014 By in prima pagina With | No Comments
    Hanno ancora solo le foglie, ma tra pochi giorni inizieranno a nascere i primi delicati fiori rosa acceso, e poi tra alcune settimane inizieranno a maturare anche i frutti. La pesca è uno dei frutti più golosi dell’estate e nella nostra regione trova l’ambiente adatto per diventare di ottima qualità. In particolare lungo le colline che circondano il fiume Foglia trova un terreno ideale per sviluppare tuta la sua dolcezza e succosità. Diventata ormai celebre, la pesca di Montelabbate, viene addirittura celebrata in una apposita festa paesana, la ‘Sagra delle Pesche’, che nella terza domenica di luglio, attira visitatori e turisti per assaporare le pregiate qualità prodotte in zona.

    Il pesco è un albero che richiede cure e potature precise, pena la seccatura o la mancanza di frutti, e gli agricoltori di Montelabbate sono ormai esperti in materia. Piccoli o grandi frutteti punteggiano la valle, e già da giugno è possibile trovare tanti privati coltivatori che in sovrabbondanza di prodotto lo vendono in piccole bancarelle lungo le strade principali della zona.

    Le varietà sono tante: ovviamente con e senza pelo, a pasta gialla o bianca, a tabacchiera, e altre ancora. I benefici altrettanti, visto che sono ricche di vitamine e con poche calorie, ricche di acqua e fibre, sono il frutto ideale dell’estate.

    Per gli amanti della cucina si possono citare tantissime preparazioni che utilizzano la pesca: dalle marmellate ai succhi di frutta, tantissimi dolci e torte, e il dissetante vino con le pesche, servito anche durante la Sagra; inoltre sono ottimi anche gli abbinamenti con le carni come il pollo.

    Marcheholiday offre bellissime ville proprio nella zona che ospita questi magnifici frutteti come  Casa Celeste e Villa Nobili, dove è possibile soggiornare circondati dalla natura, ma vicini alla città e al mare.

  • L’Abbadia di San Tommaso In Foglia

    Posted 23 aprile 2014 By in prima pagina With | No Comments
    Nascosta agli occhi dei passanti dalla vegetazione di un giardino privato, ad Apsella di Montelabbate, si trova una antichissima chiesa che ha visto soggiornare tra le sue mura un Papa ed un Imperatore. L’Abbadia di San Tommaso in Foglia è l’unica costruzione rimasta di un importante monastero Benedettino sorto circa nel 980 d.c., che contava oltre alla chiesta e al chiostro, numerosi edifici, opifici e un cimitero.  Come testimoniano alcuni reperti tutt’ora conservati all’interno della Chiesa, il complesso fu eretto sui resti di un precedente tempio pagano, e sembra che lo stesso San Terenzio, patrono della città di Pesaro, fu martirizzato nelle sue vicinanze intorno al 250 d.c.

    La sua importanza nel corso dei secoli fu confermata da due illustri visitatori: l’imperatore germanico Lotario III e Papa Clemente II che nel 1047 vi soggiornò per alcuni mesi prima della sua morte. La salma del Papa fu conservata per due anni nel monastero per essere poi traslata a Bamberga in Germania.

    I secoli che si susseguirono videro il monastero Benedettino al centro degli scontri tra Sforza, Malatesta e Montefeltro che provocarono la distruzioni e cambi di mano, fino al punto che i beni in esso custoditi furono assegnati al Capitolo della Cattedrale di Pesaro per garantirne la sicurezza; altri secoli di abbandono culminarono in un terremoto che nel 1781 causò il crollo di parte della navata della Chiesa supestite. Un secolo dopo le navate laterali furono vendute a dei privati, per essere usati come magazzini.

    Negli anni ’70 dopo che la famiglia Fabbri, proprietaria delle navate laterali, ne fece dono alla Chiesa cattolica, iniziò il restauro della Abbadia.

    Oggi la semplicità data la purezza delle linee romaniche, fanno apprezzare fino in fondo l’aura di sacralità di questo luogo, meta di tante coppie che nel corso degli anni hanno deciso di celebrare qui il loro matrimonio; durante la terza domenica di ottobre la piccola frazione di Apsella celebra il suo monumento più importante con la Festa dell’Abbadia, tipica festa religiosa paesana dove nel primo pomeriggio una processione di fedeli partendo proprio da questa Abbazia percorre tutto il paese.
