The Philosophy Festival

In the month of the pink sunset

I have been passionate about this philosophy festival since its first edition in 2015: I was in Ischia in the last week of September, lost in this wonderful atmosphere of change that the island offers with its livery of unique colors. Where I come from, a small city in northern Europe, we are always lurking in September, thinking that the weather will soon change abruptly, leaving space for the autumn colors, the leaves that accompany the rivers in gravity, in a course of fresh water, inexorable, in continuous movement, fast and greedy of past.

The island of the Grand Tour

Between the spectacle of the Gulf and the green hills of lava

The passage to the island was the first, true contact with the sea. They had always looked at it safely on the mainland, wandering those strips of land that stood out on the horizon. In Naples, in the salons where stories and memories were exchanged, those who had already had the privilege always recommended the exploration of those lands immersed in the blue.

pascoli

Going through pastures

Going through pastures, the path that leads from Bocca di Serra to Corbaro Park, the place where everything is possible...

Andar per Pascoli è un’idea rubata, un sogno che si realizza, un racconto condiviso da chi è stanco dell’oridinarietà. Andar per Pascoli è il nostro modo di offrire un’emozione a chi ha bisogno di staccare la spina e sfuggire dallo stress. Queste sono le parole con cui Nino e Max, gestori di Corbaro Park e instancabili sognatori, raccontano il nuovo viaggio intrapreso.

Of water and clay, the terrecottes signed by the island of the vasai

by Isabella Marino*


We will never know its real name. There has been done, Inos, to defeat oblivion. And the time. That signature, placed at the end of the eighth century BC, is the oldest of a craftsman who has come down to us. It  tell us the story of an object of everyday use found on the hill of Mazzola, in today’s Lacco Ameno. A few tens of meters, as the crow flies, from the most coastal “keramèikos”, the potters’ quarter discovered since the middle of the last century in the archaeological area under the basilica of Santa Restituta, where also Inos modeled and decorated the local clay.

Sant’Anna, an endless charm

The Sant’Anna celabration dates back to a tradition of the last century. On July 26, each year, pregnant women went in procession to worship the Mother of Madonna who was in a chapel in Cartaromana Bay. They were accompanied by a procession of anglers’ boats, which for the occasion adorned the hull with bushes and flower garlands.

parco eden

The Enchantment of the Eden Park

There are places where time seems to stop, spaces in which to find the serenity and the peace that in this world seem to be escaping continuously. The “Eden” Park of Ischia is in this sense a harmonious oasis of beauty and relaxation, cleverly conjugated to give moments of deep serenity. The magic beach club atmosphere of the Eden Garden was born from the extraordinary fusion of the renowned key points of Ischia Island: nature, history and sea. At the foot of the Guevara Tower (now a museum and multi-faceted structure) and in the center of the ancient colonial bay of Aenaria (today submerged), a flourishing Roman settlement, which is considered to be a major activity between the 1st century BC. and IV century AD.

Essential is visible in Bettina Buttgen’s eyes

Listening to Bettina Buttgen, a multifaceted artist of German origins is an unmissable opportunity. Her creations are indispensable. It is a world made of workmanship and textures, frequencies and vibrations that have a material tonality and point to the world of men the source of energy by which it is possible to break the silence of silence and the dullness that surrounds it.

Dialogue with Luca D’ambra of the Ravino Gardens

Raffaele Mirelli: Why the name Ravino?
Luca D’Ambra: It refers to the surname or rather to the family stock - by the grandfather - etymologically refers to the “ravina”, a tool similar to a pickaxe that cuts the stone into scales.
R.M .: How does the history of the garden begin?
L. D .: Beginning with my father, a collector of plants and “traveling the seas” by profession. He brought plants from all over the world, from South America in particular.
