And where is it written? " Sometimes, the technicians of the programming are put in the head to divide the Marche in homogeneous zones.Then they take a map and draw a line: North and South.

After a while the map looks like the web of a crazed spider. Really homogeneous, in the Marche, there is almost nothing. Perhaps only the name, which however, being in the plural, already alludes to the manifold.
