Last Saturday Jürgen Michel (born in Süd Tirol/Alto Adige, that's why the German-looking name), a friend and fellow organic breeder, organized the "3rd Maialino Day" in Barchi. My friends from Agriturismo alla Madonna del Piatto in Assisi (Umbria) were visiting so, joined by three joung and resolute Americans who are beginning a great adventure in Sant'Angelo in Vado (little town near Urbino) La Tavola Marche, we spent the afternoon and the evening in Mondavio and Barchi (I already posted about Mondavio here).
Barchi is a beautiful walled hilltop town
We took a walk around both towns and we ended the day eating "all things pig" at the Maialino Day, since I did not take any pictures you can read the whole experience from an American's point of view and see some pics here.
It was a very very enjoyable day and I hope that we will do this again before the season starts!
By the way, this is the view of Assisi from Alla Madonna del Piatto (I took the photo last summer when I visited them!)
