3 Investment and Funding

Attract public and private investment to rehabilitate and restore historic buildings and infrastructure. Seek funding from regional, national, and EU development programs aimed at revitalizing rural areas.

4 Cultural Enrichment Through Tourism

Our goal is to attract cultural tourism, with the hope that a significant number of visitors will be drawn to buying a home in these historic centres. This not only enriches our community but allows others to share in the authentic Italian lifestyle that Le Marche has to offer. Our regional website will enable us to raise funds to finance socio-cultural initiatives and exchanges.

Our Mission: Building Stronger Communities Together

Welcome to Friends of Le Marche, Italy! We are a cultural non-profit association which aims to create an international, inclusive community focused on preserving the unique beauty, identity, and rich heritage of Le Marche. We hope to achieve this by embracing long-term, sustainable solutions which can preserve small communities nestled in Le Marche's countryside, keeping them alive and thriving for generations to come.

We can share what makes the region so special by providing a comprehensive overview of the region’s rich art and architecture, ancient civilisations and archaeological sites, culinary delights, snowy peaks, sunny beaches and natural wonders.

Our aim is to entice cultural enthusiasts who treasure historic villages from all over the world with a view to their purchasing homes within walking distance of our historic town centres. Not only would this enrich our community, but it would also help to preserve our cultural heritage in exchange for sharing an authentic and healthy Italian lifestyle. 

We also believe in the importance of fostering connections and nurturing relationships. That’s why we promote Le Marche by introducing and linking you to a network of multilingual professionals across the region ready to assist with everything from property exploration, transactions, renovations, maintenance of homes to anything you need to settle into Le Marche life. Lastly, and just as important, we aim to leave behind a positive legacy that inspires and motivates the next generation to pursue.

Together, let’s preserve our cultural heritage while embracing the authentic and wholesome Italian lifestyle!
