il risveglio di tifeo ad Ischia

... A jump, the Tifeo’s sigh ... so the ancients would tell the Casamicciola quake that upset the Ischian summer!
In their imagination, Ischia, the island born from the sea, between myth and legend, was the fruit of the proud fight of the Titans against the King of the Gods, the Supreme Jupiter. He, angry about their rebellion, hurled a mountain against giant Tifeo, who fell into the sea near the beach of Miseno and formed a new island with him on his belly. The legend of Tifeo who, with the other Titans, wanted to attack the Olympus, is still alive in the stories of the Ischitans, especially in the names of some island towns. Where is set Testaccio is the Tifeo’s head, where is Panza his body and belly in Lacco Ameno where the Fungo rises from the sea the unmistakable part of his body.

Essential is visible in Bettina Buttgen’s eyes

bettina logoListening 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.
It is in balance with everyday life, with its frenetic rhythms and widespread schizophrenia, of stress and normality passed off as art and feeling at home. It is enough to cross the threshold of her atelier-lab, which uses to create with own her hands limited-production of items, in front of the promenade leading to Cava dell’Isola Beach, in Forio on the highway, to reach a lost place in some dimension.

Return to the castle wine

castello vinoSet in the ancient village of Celsa, the Aragonese Castle. Ancient stronghold dating from the time of Geron, in 476 BC. What that seems to be a fascinating two-dimensional postcard from a distance hides a small world full of art and lively life. The narrow tunnels, the stairs climbing over the towers, the ancient walls, still today are able to evoke the charm and the magic of this ancient noble residence.

Corbaro Park, between nature and magic

Corbaro Park 1922Two stories that cross, that one of Max and Nino, driven by the same desire to catch their time, their spaces, and their desire to decide their own lives. On the wave of a synchronous inner change, they decide to say good-bye to their old life, made of noise, chaos, and horns that sound like crazy and devote themselves to nature; a therapeutic way to dedicate themselves to autonomy, independence, freedom, without deadlines and without bosses.
Massimo de Michele is a desiner in Naples who works in the furniture sector, a job that is not satisfied with satisfaction, but with relentless rhythms, rhythms that no longer satisfy his needs; he wants to be quiet and to give his time a different cadence. The choice that will change his life is the result of an inner metamorphosis that will take him to Corbaro, a handkerchief in the Forio municipality. At only one hour and twenty by ferry there is Gaetano Cotugno who lives in his kingdom: the kitchen. He loves his work but does not feel it his own; the kitchen seems to him a box from which he sees his time, days, seasons, as in a sort of hellish automation. It is like watching TV where the scene is always the same. Max and Nino want to twist their lives and the fate put them on the same path. The first time they go to the place that will become Corbaro Park, they seem to be in the presence of an old, knackered and crumbling woman...

parco edenThere 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.
