primavera

First Real

Another gloomy day, cold and not for temperature: February! In the middle of the shortest month, the mind of Eduardo was playing with the memories. It must has been long beating of time, irregular, dictated by the patter of rain falling: Tic, tac, tuc, tic, rustling leaves, wind cuts, earth receives. Water! It was only water. Source of life and valuable asset. Although almost finished, this winter made him tired and thoughtfully.

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.

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.

The best water in the world

I was almost 10 when with my bike, a “venti” with the frame at an angle,
crashed near the Calabbresiello balcony, in Via Roma, in the center of Barano. Knees full of blood, such as the right shoulder and the front, a disaster. Today people would not lose a moment to go to Lacco Ameno, to the hospital.
Mom and Dad had neither car nor a driving license. So my parents knew exactly what was done in these cases. They had learned from their elders.

The eternal beauty inside Sorgeto Bay

The narrow plateau under the sun, in the full moon expands, brightens, revealing a side of profiles of crags and slopes, low vineyards, reed beds, opens a horizon of guessed precipices, far away. On the other side, it creaks of pumice volatile, volcanic flour and the trail smells of brooms and Eubea, lost and found.
We go down the steep, and clear and sweet is the night, but there is a land breeze among the ridges, leaving the trace, slips; and imagines the midday light. The rarefied crowd of human ants climbs constantly slow awaited by farmers and anglers in a village of gardens against the sky, bringing valuable goods of uselessness, taking wine and time in six hundred B.C.

Discovering the wonder of the Ischian Biodiversity

“Walking along the paths” is an event not to be missed

Ischia, island, sun, sea: it is a correct axiom. In addition, it is obvious but simplistic to the green island, which is a true natural laboratory for Biodiversity of which even the most untrained eye cannot have perception. Then “Walking along paths” in Ischia is a greedy appointment to the discovery of a territory which, rightly, is a natural treasure that never ceases to amaze.
It is precisely because the word ‘wonder’ accompanying every visit.
From Monte Epomeo at 360° you can admire the entire island also noticeable from the outside, but from Mount Vezzi with the rotation of the head you have only the chance to grasp at your right the Port of Ischia and at your left, Sant’ Angelo, is something you never would think.
