Take Le Marche, the green and pleasant region of Italy located halfway up the country’s eastern, Adriatic shore. Do we refer to it in English, as “The Marches”? Do we call it plain “Marche”, half of its official title, Regione Marche? Or do we simply leave it in standard Italian, as “Le Marche” ?

It’s not important the name: this Region is a flower, beautiful like our garden
