autunno

Autumn, between mushrooms and perfumes

Autumn is in the air, in the scent of fermenting must and vinasses scattered in the fields. But it is definitely in the woods that we perceive more: chestnuts begin to fall (ready to be harvested), decorating here and there on the carpet of leaves, which hides among other things mushrooms, chestnuts along with the real stars of the autumn season. The route that we propose this month in full autumnal theme takes us to two of the most beautiful forests of the island.

Monte-Epomeo-ischia

Climbing Mount Epomeo

The island of Ischia thanks to its geo-morphological and climatic peculiarities represents a unique environment in the Mediterranean Sea, a chest full of treasures, a laboratory in which to live and understand the meaning of the concept of biodiversity. From a geological point of view it is a complex of several raised and inclined plots, separated by fractures and faults that were used often as way out of the magma of the local catchment area, thus giving rise to a series of volcanic structures.

Looking for the lost vine, the Guarnaccia

In the Cimmento Rosso area, in the municipality of Forio, La Pegola farm rises. A place for the recovery of traditions and the reverence of table pleasures, from food to good drinks. Here, you can find jams with rare and special tastes and traditional food like the rabbit Cacciatora.
From the reception point, from which the rooms spread, the path is pleasant: green tuff stones encircle the thick vegetation; the dry walls ‘contain’ the lush and thick vines of a greenery so intense almost blinding the view. The panorama is exciting, the intense blue of the sea supports the green of the vines and over the sea overlays the blue sky so fair and clear. The narrow street that runs along the vineyards leads to a cave of green tuff, an old cellar that hides the most precious secret of the farm.

Underwater archeology, an added value of protected marine areas

The potential of Cultural Heritage as a tourist attraction is a fact, while the tourist potential of the rich underwater archeological heritage of Campania is still under development due to the lack of a basic logistic organization that enables operators in the “musealization” of the submerged site and accompanying visitors in an appropriate way.

Premio Aenaria 2017

National theater festival ænaria award

The National Theater Festival Ænaria Award is the event designed and organized by the Association Amici del Teatro and sponsored by the City of Ischia, this year in its fourth edition. The Ænaria Award owes its name to the ancient underwater town in the waters in front of the Aragonese Castle. Its goal is to display the full range of its talent. Abilities hidden under water. Disclosing the attitudes of theater actors as the inhabitants of the ancient city of Ænaria. But the goal is to bring Island of Ischia to life as a destination also for winter tourism, tied to art and culture, to the charm of the Prize, to the beauties that our land offers even in the low season.
