Through the photography in this book the reader is invited to explore the Marches and discover some hitherto hidden aspects of this "undiscovered territory" (der "Unbekannten Schoenen") "Through the green pastures of the Appennine mountains, the face of a peasant farmer or a study of the coastal landscape, the author of this book makes us become aware of the real nature of this land ...."

Giuseppe Chiucchiú was born in Latina, Italy, in 1964 and received his professional training in former West Germany before working for important news agencies as a photographic reporter. Afterwards, as an independent freelancer, his work was published by some of the most famous newspapers and magazines in the world.
He documented some of the key events of the past years as a photographer, such as the US presidential campaign, the crisis in Yugoslavia, the Zapatista revolt in Chiapas, the crisis following the assassination of Rabin and journeys of the Pope.
Chiucchiú has produced a series of great documentary reports. For one of them ("Orthodox Jews in New York") he received the prestigious "Nikon Photo Contest International" Award in 1996.
He returned to live in the Marches again in 1986.Review:
Giuseppe Chiucchiú has analysed the nature of the Ancona March -and why not in the future extend this study to the whole of the Marches region?- with a photographer's poetic eye, but has not abandoned his imaginative professional skill as an expert photographic reporter. He has for example climbed to the top of the Basilica in Loreto to record on film certain details of the foot and the eyes of the statue of the Madonna, obtaining close-ups that would be impossible to get from street level below - a revelation for the majority of visitors to the celebrated sanctuary. The entire book is a gallery of artwork and enjoyably imaginative text. For all these reasons I think it is proper and fitting to include it in the great library of cultural heritage material in the Ancona Province collection - and I am sure readers will agree with me. -- Enzo Giancarli
