Set in the southern part of Marche, Ascoli Piceno is the town where, according to Jean-Paul Sarte, a walk through the streets is like browsing a book of history of Italian art.

While brushing up their Italian the students will learn about the art and architecture of this beautiful and little known corner of Italy. They will get to taste and prepare the delicious specialties of the area, olive all’ascolana, vincisgrassi, pizza a u cace among the others, and will discover the local wines and oils.
