A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

Le Marche remains one of Italy’s undiscovered treasures. Our craftsmen are constantly inspired by its idyllic landscape and rich history of art, architecture, and culture.

The region is nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea; hemmed with green dales, rolling hills, and medieval towns. Cypress and olive trees cluster around hilltops, and terraced vineyards fleck the hillsides. Le Marche is particularly blessed with rich agriculture; soft patches of wheat carpet the landscape all the way down to the sea. The region is known as the undisputed capital of shoemaking in Italy. The locals, the Marchigiani, represent the very best qualities of what the southern and

northern Italians have to offer: they are hard-working, even-tempered, friendly, and have a relaxed approach to life. They possess a deep-rooted sense of tradition with an appreciation for culture and craftsmanship.

Many artistic luminaries hail from Le Marche: the artists Lorenzo and Jacopo Salimbeni and Raffaello Sanzio, the composer Gioachino Rossini, the poet Giacomo Leopardi, and the violin-maker Andrea Postacchini who is often referred to

as the “Stradivari of the Marches”. Like these artists from the past, Bontoni’s craftsmen are constantly inspired by Le Marche’s glorious landscape and rich history of art, architecture, and culture.
