Ipomea of Negombo and a new sensitivity

There is a renewed experience of the body: no longer facing the pure image but the quality of life, of things, of history, of memory. It involves a new way of relating to the world.

La Fonte delle Ninfe

Nitrodi spring is located in Buonopane, part of the municipality of Barano d' Ischia, in one of the most fascinating and least contaminated corner of Ischia which is still similar to that one frequented by the Romans two thousand years ago.
Numerous votive reliefs discovered near the source in 1757 and now preserved in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples attest that the sources were visited for therapeutic purposes since at least the first century BC.

Giacinto-Lavitrano--3

Giacinto Lavitrano

It seems the final touch of a bitter and spiteful screenplay. Dedicating the work of maturity, “La Desolata”, to the land of origin, that so loved and made him suffer. “Gerusalemme ingrata, la colpa sua detesta, quando, dolente e mesta, ti vide ritornare”. The indifference of the city to the pain of a mother to whom had crucified the Son, is perhaps the projection distance with which the musician forian Giacinto Lavitrano had to face throughout their lives. The music will remain as the only dialogue with the soul.

A civilization that was born from the sea

"'O mare fa paura" Accussì dice 'a ggente guardanno 'o mare calmo, calmo cumme na tavula. E dice 'o stesso pure dint' 'e gghiurnate 'e vierno quanno 'o mare s'aiza, e l'onne saglieno primm' a palazz' 'e casa e pò a muntagne. Vergine santa... scanza 'e figlie 'e mamma!
......................
Io quanno 'o sento, specialmente 'e notte, cumme stevo dicenno, nun è ca dico: "'O mare fa paura", ma dico: "'O mare sta facenno 'o mare".

Eduardo De Filippo
