Gina and the sense of life

The senses of the human person are five: sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch. Where and how do they express better these “senses” up to make the “sense” of life? Gina Menegazzi has asked the question many years ago and gave her answer with her life choice. I met her on a Sunday in November on the pier that connects the village of Ischia Ponte, the ancient Borgo of Celsa, with the Aragonese Castle, the most important monument of the island of Ischia, which contains all its thousand-year history.

Christmas for Geoffrey and Kittredge

It was Christmas of 1930. Two young Anglo-Saxon people belonging to the middle class, Geoffrey Bret - Harte, half American and half English, 35, and Mabel Kittredge Spencer, American, both in love with the “Bel Paese” with the pleasure of writing, they get married in Naples in May of the same year and had decided to spend a year on their honeymoon on the island of Ischia, then little known in the international tourist circuits. In fact they discovered Ischia from Capri.



Christmas in Music

The warning is mandatory: if you feel like the old Scrooge of Dickens, and in December come assaulted by an uncontrollable urge to take the elves of Santa Claus and bury them all with a branch of holly planted in your heart, you should be away from these lines. The music of the holidays, you know, cannot escape the inevitable triumph of bells, reindeer and snowflakes. Even at tropical latitudes.

Along the narrow streets of my country

I’m back after so many years in the streets of my country, there where I spent my childhood and my youth that, in the age of unconsciousness, is eternal. But as adults, in a crude way, we realize that life passes quickly, we are consoled by the thought that the eternal is not in matter, but in the vibrations, sensations that hover around us and we perceive according to our sensitivity and our moods.
