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.

De Formae: transfigurations and unconscious mutations http://www.ischia.it/en/de-formae-transfigurations-and-unconscious-mutations http://www.ischia.it/en/de-formae-transfigurations-and-unconscious-mutations

Transfiguration Raphael copyDialogue 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.
R.M .: How does this story evolve?
L.D .: My father continued to collect plants even after his maritime period, obtaining them during leisure trips, or through exchanges with other collectors.

Corbaro Park, between nature and magic http://www.ischia.it/en/corbaro-park-between-nature-and-magic http://www.ischia.it/en/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.

Festa a mare agli scogli di Sant'anna

Every year, on the afternoon of July 26, Aniellantonio Mascolo, along with a couple of guys, arranged the "cuppetielli" on the Sant'Anna rocks. yes, he, perhaps the most important member of our artistic tradition. Even before Christo was packaging monuments and unrolling carpet on the lakes, “our” Aniellantonio with a gesture, which today to make an impression in some quarters semms "performative", transformed the sights: drawing geometries bringing out, in the extraordinary time of the Feast, that set of relationships, symmetries, lines, marks, that History and Nature have partly cleared and that the lazy viewer's eye every day hard to see.

The Tifeo’s sigh http://www.ischia.it/en/the-tifeo-s-sigh http://www.ischia.it/en/the-tifeo-s-sigh

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.

What has the Aragonese Castle in common with the villa near Punta Caruso or the Citara beach with the farmhouse overlooking the promontory of San Pancrazio or the village of Sant’Angelo with the summit of Monte Epomeo? Ischia, like its wonders, is not limited and to tell it you can use hundreds of ways. Through the mountain trails climbing over the summit or with the feet in the granular sand of its beaches or overlook the Zaro viewpoint, looking at land, sea and sky blend into an ideal horizon whose line is intertwined with the Church of Soccorso.

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.

Tomorrow will be ten days I’m here and I have the feeling they will have a decisive importance for my whole future life”. These are the words of Eduard Bargher, who along with Werner Gilles, two of the “degenerate artists” banned from Nazism, in his long travelling to the south of Europe in search of a place to live and that light of the Mediterranean Sea that only In Ischia he said he had found, wrote about Sant’Angelo.
A small hamlet that over the course of time enchanted and continues to enchant those who are fortunate to visit it, even for a very short time. In this beautiful village, hamlet of the Municipality of Serrara Fontana, on all stands out an islet also called “Torre di S.Angelo”.
