If you love the Marche, in addition to its very varied landscape, you will also love the sandwich created for the third edition of RisorgiMarche, the Festival directed by Neri Marcorè and born to support the villages near the Marche Apennines, badly injured by the earthquakes of August and October 2016. The event includes a calendar full of events, concerts and artistic performances that sees, until August 7, names known from the Italian music scene.
The region bathed by the Adriatic Sea also boasts beautiful mountain villages immersed in the most uncontaminated nature, to be reached by bicycle or on foot to attend free concerts scheduled during the festival.
To marry the philosophy and the solidarity and cultural objectives of the event there is also the chef Andrea Mainardi, which he designed for the occasion the "RisorgiMarche" sandwich together with the artistic director of the event, Neri Marcorè. In collaboration with Faber, a manufacturer of hoods, which for the third consecutive year supports the festival, in Fabriano on 11 July, chef Mainardi (Faber's ambassador brand) along with Marcorè has cooked a sandwich inspired by the territory, but easily replicable also at home. A way to support these places through local excellence and to highlight the importance of re-launching agro-food activities to further boost the rebirth of a region put to the test hard.
