Festa San Vito Forio Ischia 1

Sulfur and the ring pledge

The name of the second island city in importance and extension, has all the charm of the influences that have animated it and according to some scholars is derived from ‘Fiorio’, symbolizing the flourishing after the destruction of other Hamlets. According to others it is descended from the Greek «phoròs», that is ‘fertile’ or - more likely - from «chorìon» ie «villaggio». The month of June is the most appropriate to visit the “middle ground”, located between the promontories of Punta Caruso - known as Zaro - and Punta Imperatore.

The botanical Ravino Garden, in search of that path of Eden

«One more year for the Botanical Giardino Ravino becoming path beyond space and time to the Divine research»

One more year, one more unit of the current date, 2017. A more year to MERISTEMA, the annual meeting of Giardini Ravino, the X edition celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of Henry D. Thoreau, transcendentalist philosopher, considered one of the most underrated minds of America. As misunderstood his name, as great his influence: Tolstoy, Gandhi, ML King, Mandela, the beat generation, folk singer, Bob Dylan and Patti Smith were inspired by Thoreau and also filmmakers such as Peter Weir with “Dead Poets Society” and Sean Penn with “Into the wild”. Anarchists, radicals, pacifists, vegetarians, environmentalists, advocates of descent happy, supporters of the gift economy, and even designers owe much to Thoreau.

vino

The heroes of wine in Ischia

Nicola shakes the glass in a rotating sense; he is satisfied while doing it. The scents of his wines are clean, crisp, refined, aromas that reveal the history of the wines, elegant and the great fatigue that hides a well-made glass of nectar. The work in the vineyard is hard, explains Nicola, and while he tells, is happy. Wine is nothing but the fruit of a well-liked project born of the earth and the untiring work of those who devote themselves behind the scenes, faceless men who offer their own life on earth. Wine, you know, is made in the vineyard; we know it, but Nicola, Vera and Antonio Mazzella know a little more. Their life becomes more complicated when vineyards bend to the art of extreme funambulism and work becomes more difficult. Heavenly skies and vigorous vineyards clinging to steep terraces on the sea are the image of what is called heroic viticulture.
