We have been told by friends and guests that Solebello wouldn't be Solebello without us,
Enrico and Cathy, the owners and your personal tour guides, so here is our story!


Enrico was born and raised in Rome, a true Roman and proud of it! But his father was
originally from the Iesi / Ancona area and his grandfather was born in Monte San Vito (right
next to Morro D'Alba) and every year since he was a toddler, his parents came to Senigallia
for their summer vacation. Enrico had decided when he was 20, tired of the hustle and bustle of
the big city, to make a move to live in his favorite beach resort full time.
Not long after this move he meets, me, Cathy, on the beach in Senigallia. I am a 2nd generation
American with Italian/Irish heritage. In fact my grandmother was from Senigallia and my
grandfather was from the beautifully restored medieval hill town of Mondavio. I too, spent my
vacations in Senigallia visiting Italian relatives and going to the beach.  Love at first sight? We
think so. We were married at the beautiful town hall of Senigallia and the rest is history!
3
8 years in 2017 and counting!
We started our adventure together by buying an old abandoned farm house in the country just
outside of Senigallia that needed to be completely renovated from top to bottom. There was no
plumbing,electricity, windows or doors! When the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun " came out
we looked at each other and said, "yeah, been there, done that!!"
In this same time period we had opened a store specializing solely in Italian Handcrafts, "Folli
Follie", further down the Adriatic Coast in another popular seaside resort, Peschici on the
Gargano coast.
After 15 years , the house was finally finished and we felt ready for a new adventure. We sold
the house and took "Folli Follie" to America eventually choosing in 1994 New Hope
Pennsylvania  to open our new store  "Made in Italy" importing only the finest in Italian
Handcrafts.
Needless to say we soon found that we had left our hearts in the Marche Region and "Made in
Italy" became a reference point for anyone coming into the shop for information in general on
Italy but specifically a window of promotion for the Marche. We spent literally hours talking
with customers about our beloved region and convincing them of the need to visit it! And it
makes us very happy to know that many have because of that!
Traveling back and forth every year on our buying trips for the shop, we would spend at least a
month if not 2 in our apartment in Ostra and, in between work and visiting family, we roamed
the Marchigian countryside searching for our next farmhouse.
We found "Solebello" in 2005 one day on a bet after seeing an ad in a local paper for its sale.
We both remembered the house, knew it quite well actually, before and during its renovation in
the 80's. Well, to make a long story short, we bought it that day! There was no question, this
was it and it was going to be the perfect home base for allowing us to initiate our tours of the
Marche Region.
We did manage in the midst of all of this to have and raise our beautiful daughter Jessica who
has been back and forth from Italy  so many times that she has become quite comfortable living
and working both here at Solebello and our store in New Hope and has been a constant help
for us in our never ending search for quality and perfection to satisfy our customers. Having
grown up in 2 countries we know how hard it is to choose which one you want to settle down
in. It can be very confusing and we wish her the best in her decision!
Well that's us in a nutshell and here we are promoting and loving this area with all our heart and
soul! All we can say is that we hope you come to visit the Marche and discover that Solebello
Country House and Agri Residence is the perfect place to stay while you are here!
