Italy is divided in twenty regions. We live in the Marche region It forms the eastern seaboard of central Italy with the regions of Emilia-Romagna to the north and Abruzzo to the south. From the relatively narrow coastal plains the land rises sharply to the peaks of the Apennines which form a natural boundary with Umbria and Tuscany to the west.
Within the region there are five provinces. We belong to the province of Fermo. Our town is called Amandola We live in Monti Sibillini National park. The highest point in the Marche is Monte Vettore in the Sibillini Mountains at 2,476 metres. We live in the valley down this mountain.
The name of Amandola is of medieval origin and derives from Mandorlo (almond tree), a plant that must have excelled in the area. Amandola is one of the most important Sibillini centres and its favourable position makes it one of the most appreciated places of Marche tourism.
