The girl and the grapes (of the Grandfather)

We chose to extricate a peasant identity island, handed down at the turn of generations.
As a very nice jaunty fox waiting to bite ripe grapes, Miriam Cianciarelli, photographed by Tommaso Monti, is the amused protagonist involved in this mini-reportage at the harvest time (which still continues in some parts of the island) between vineyards cultivated by her grandfather Vincenzo Regine, in Forio. Miriam explains, in details, her love for the land which, starting from far away, through the ancient experience, manages to engage hearts and minds of young people to renew the vitality of a miracle.

Elve's food. Mushrooms, fairies and fantasies of autumn

Elve's food. Mushrooms, fairies and fantasies of autumn

Have you heard of the very secret research done in the woods of Ischia, not far from the groves of beans called bagpipers, including hardwood logs of oak and chestnut trees, even olive trees and the Ganoderma lucidum?
This is a non-edible mushroom quite rare for Ischia, although very well known for its medicinal and anti-inflammatory powers when reduced to powder tablets in China and Japan.
This mushroom associated to oak trees, trees of life, opens the doors for a digression which for me is relevant.

Are we all mushroom "foragers"?

Are we all mushroom "foragers"?

The woods on the island of Ischia hold a special charm. Woods of chestnut, majestic oak, of the extremely dark – alternating silver and green holm oaks, and all that Mediterranean maquis of thatch, strawberry trees, myrtles, Pulici, and ferns from the beginning to the end.
Until before the war, the islanders living in the villages and towns (suburbs) higher up were almost exclusive “foragers” of mushrooms. Everyone extremely jealous of his own passed down and personal “places”, passed down from grandfather to son, and more often from grandfather to grandson. The mushroom hunter waits for rain as if it were manna.

My frend the Sperm Whale

My frend the Sperm Whale

The summer mist had a different density but it was beginning to clear. Nicola held fast the tiller and stared at his son who, rocked by the sound of the engine of the small fishing boat, between sea sprays and light breezes, had fallen asleep in the prow near the nets just ten minutes after weighing anchor.
It was not the first time that Salvatore had left the coast with his father but never so early. Nicola had promised him, after his continual insistence every evening before bedtime, that at day light he would be taken to the deep submerged valley known as the Canyon of Cuma between Ischia and Ventotene to observe the sperm whales.
