The area

The Marche region:
time-honoured harmony
between man and the land

The Marche region is the very heart of Italy, and finds the meeting point between North and South. It is a land of farming traditions between the Adriatic and the summits of the Sibylline mountains, a land in which the links with man have always been harmonious.
On these gentle, cultivated hills, farming has for centuries constituted the main activity and primary source of income for its inhabitants. The area has, however, also managed to develop artisan, manufacturing and industrial businesses that produce footwear, furniture and food products of outstanding quality, which are the envy of countries worldwide.

The particular lay of the land with its valleys set out in a "comb" formation descending parallel to one another towards the sea, a position that renders it almost isolated from the circuit of major highways, has contributed towards keeping the links with ancient knowledge and manual skills alive, allowing the professions of yesteryear to be handed down to younger generations. Small settlements scattered on the tops of the hills, parcels of lush land cultivated meticulously and with pride, small stables with just a few animals: the image of a green and hard-working region is the same today as it was centuries ago

First and foremost, Saipa is made up of the people who, with intelligence, passion and dedication, have set out and indeed managed to maintain a link with tradition and the legacy of knowledge and farming culture that have brought past and present together in the name of wholesomeness.
