The Marchigiano (that's the name for Marche original inhabitants), it's
a hard worker, and if by chance he doesn't have a work anymore, he does
invent a new one. The original rural economy during the time diversified
itself toward craft and industrial activities, all projected to the future
but always with an eye to the past, just to not forget that a durable
success can be obtained by a hard and constant work.
The main industrial poles are the shoe industry in the Fermo area, the
fish industry in the Ascoli area, the electrical appliance industry in
the Fabriano and Macerata areas and last the furniture industry in Pesaro.
Even the agricolture updated itself to the new global market rules making
up a wider agricultural activity: the modern farmer includes from 10 to
20 little old farms. This process brought to the availability of all those
farmhouses which 30-40 years ago were the centre of farmers life: their
shape and structure, like an open book, tell us about all their past history.
