(Eating Your Way Through Le Marche, Italy - Part 2)
In conjunction with our series "Eating Your Way Through Le Marche" here are a few fabulous Slow Food foodie events, not to be missed in Le Marche this April & May 2010:

Slow Food is also the moving spirit behind Distinti Salumi, the National Festival of Italian Charcuterie on 30 April, 1 & 2 May in the norther Le Marche village of Cagli. The courtyards of the town's historic palazzi are filled with meat & you can taste some of Italy's finest salumeria. Distinti Salumi website
