When Marche, like all the other Italian regions, between the 70s and 90s had to choose a symbol for their emblem, the choice fell on the totemic animal, the Woodpecker, which according to legend guided the migration of the Piceno people in Marche.
Sunday 9 June, Marche Prelibate, in line with its philosophy of making known not only the culinary and productive tradition of the Marche region but also the history and culture of this territory, shared the 3rd stage of La Staffetta del Bianchello, organized by Association "Walking on your steps".
This simple recipe has as protagonist a typical excellence of the Marche region, the Cantiano sour cherry; small wild cherries (not to be confused with sour cherries) with bright red color and sweet taste with a sour aftertaste.
