Morro d’Alba is a charming town, full of light (in Italian, “Alba” means dawn/white/bright), located in the front row of hills that rise from the coast. God has granted it the gift of producing the nectar that delights our tables, soothes our moods, relaxes the atmosphere, and invites us to savour the moment. Dionysus, the Greek god of the productive force of the earth, is a great flatterer and a great traveller. He is deeply linked to vegetation, fertility, and the vine. He taught various peoples he encountered during his long stays how to cultivate the vine, from Greece to Egypt and to our territories, where he took on the name Bacchus and was accompanied by the Bacchantes, women loyal to him who had the task of helping him assimilate better in his animal form.
But wine is also a symbol of the blood of a man who has traced the history of our last two thousand years. Not by chance, the wine of Morro d’Alba is called “Lacrima Christi,” a vibrant red, full-bodied, and a symbol of redemption.
The vineyards that cover these hills have vivid colours, surrounded by rows of oaks that line the streets and frame the farmhouses. The green of these places is intense and promising, and the ochre red takes on a karmic aspect, of perennial renewal.
Morro d’Alba is a town close to everything: the sea, the airport, Senigallia, and Ancona, but it stands on its own, on the top of a hill, surrounded by the walls of a perched castle, a sign of a defensive strategy with ancient origins. At the moment, you can cross it along a covered walkway, which can also be visited during bad weather.
There are excellent restaurants, one right in front of the mentioned walls, a café that is the town’s refuge, open year-round, supermarkets, hardware stores, pharmacies, and small shops that survive because it’s still common to go out just to say “good morning.” Of course, there are also many wineries: all of high quality, state-of-the-art, and ambitious, with a far-reaching vision.
Living in Morro d’Alba means turning your life into a work of art, primarily. But it’s also, in this case, a good method to make your real estate investment payoff: the proximity to the sea, at a safe distance, with the lively Senigallia, where there are two 3-Michelin-starred restaurants, says a lot about the character of these places, which are still very active. Then there are the art cities, still little known but worthy of attention because they will shine in the coming years, and we will see beautiful things, because when it comes to beauty and art, the Marche region has nothing to envy anyone.
