aenariaFor nineteen centuries, the thick prairie of Posidonia had guarded and protected it. The ancient Aenaria was now only a legend. As the landing of Enea, in that bay crouched between the great island and the Aragonese Castle. Where no one had ever found traces of the mythical Roman city that had transmitted its name to the entire island. Until the summer of 1973, when two friends, during a dive between the Scogli of Sant’Anna, found a strange old “thing”. Galena, experts had ruled. Was a first sign of Aenaria’s existence? The positive response came from the research carried out in August, which brought to light findings capable of witnessing a submerged city, precipitately abandoned by the inhabitants between 130 and 150 AD, before being inexorably swallowed by the sea.

La Mortella: The island surrounded by the garden http://www.ischia.it/en/la-mortella-the-island-surrounded-by-the-garden http://www.ischia.it/en/la-mortella-the-island-surrounded-by-the-garden

mortella quadro

Dialogue with Alessandra Vinciguerra

Entering La Mortella is an experience that renews the sensitivity of the spirit. In March, the colors, transformed into a scale of chrome that passes through an autumn and a winter of decline, expose the newfound vigor that integrates elements like earth and water in the most varied forms of nature.
The trunk of the trees, the leaves, the flowers and the fruits represent layers of life reaching out to the sky and the hidden roots of the beliefs that support the gravity of a victorious harmony.
The meeting between the visible and the invisible, between heaven and earth, is celebrated here to our senses.
Today we meet Alessandra Vinciguerra, director of the garden, not in an interview, but in a dialogue that wants to highlight Philosophy, that “humanistic” side that sustains and maintains this island surrounded by another island, the human one.

Nitrodi: millennial flow of health and wellbeing http://www.ischia.it/en/nitrodi-millennial-flow-of-health-and-wellbeing http://www.ischia.it/en/nitrodi-millennial-flow-of-health-and-wellbeing

nitrodiroberta“Copiosa sempre scaturisce a piedi di un ammasso di pezzi di lava sorretto da un muro ove sono appilcati tre piccoli doccioni, per i quali l’acqua fluisce”
G.D’Ascia 1864

The story of the source of Nitrodi is really unique and extraordinary. It is well known that in the first century B.C. the Source of Nitrodi enjoyed a certain fame throughout the Roman Empire. The numerous reliefs found in the spring of 1757 at the source and now kept at MANN show that the users of the time came from various parts of the Empire and belonged to the highest social classes. The history of the Source in Greek times, meanwhile, is still little known and unstudied. Recent modernization works on the ground floor of the structure have highlighted and highlighted the ancient “doccioni”, which are still functioning today, which have made it possible to ascertain how some large stone blocks useful to support such gutters are most likely made in Roman times before the Roman era. The source in this historical period was consecrated to God Apollo and Ninfe Nitrodi. They thought in the miraculous waters, apparently still today, through the tutors who played their role effectively. In our time, scholars, curious about the beneficial effects of this fantastic water, replace that one of science, in Apollo and the Nymphs.
