The procession of San Michele

Sant’ Angelo, a small fishing village in the south of the island renews every year at the end of September the homage to the patron saint, St. Michael the Archangel.
Don Vincenzo Fiorentino, son of the nearby village of Panza, is over 50 years pastor of St. Angelo, at the helm of one of the smaller parishes of the island, active such as since 1905 after years of “dependency” from the Parish of St. Maria del Carmine in Serrara.

My Ischia: Music and Nature

My Ischia: Music and Nature

My first time on Ischia dates back to 1991. My chronic pharyngitis needed waters like those of Ischia, and the decision to make on where to go was easy to take. I, who always prefer the sea to the beautiful mountains, was able to inaugurate a new therapeutic experience combining marine vacation with thermal spa. I never imagined to meet so much beauty and history, breathtaking views, gastronomic havens, and extraordinary warmth of the people. But despite all this the following year I changed my destination. Moreover, this was a habit with my husband and the boys: the pleasure of the holiday coincided with the opportunity to visit and learn about different places every summer. It was the case of Alto Adige or Trentino, and for bathing places.


Bettina, the textile artist

The smell of vinegar comes to my nostrils just crossed the threshold of her laboratory. The wall is filled with bowls and colors. Five are fundamental ones, but the nuances created are endless. The needle and the thread are ready to finish the edges. In the pot rest just silk fibers dyed. Red and blue: vitality and calm in comparison. It's almost a science. A little of this, a little of that, the difference being that there are no rules and the arrival point is always an ongoing quess.


Collage by Rosario

Among the specialties that make even today the island of Ischia a unique place in the world, stands no doubt the manufacture of ceramics, millennia of art born from the skillful combination of what the ancient Greek philosophers of Asia Minor considered the four basic elements of the cosmos and the four roots of Being: Air, Water, Earth and Fire. And as the demiurge of Platonic reminiscence did with the world, so an island artist of rare talent enjoys today shaping the clay: Rosario Scotto di Minico, a native of Campagnano of Ischia.


September 8, 1943

It was night between 8 and 9 September. Forio fell asleep under the spell of an armistice that brought a strange excitement and popular harmony. The desperation that a little later woke up, the town was great: betrayed by the illusion of peace, Forio lost 13 of its citizens.
At 70 years after the bombing of Forio, we want to tell a piece of our history that must not escape it to any visitor to the city to learn about and revive the local historical identity.


September Time...

September, the month of harvest and intense colors given by the nature after the summer heat, it is the month for Ischia rich in religious festivals that fill of beauty and excitement the climate of our beautiful island.
The first days of September are all dedicated to the celebrations in honor of the patron saint of the island, St. John Joseph of the Cross.


Handmade emotions

Island women sitting on a small bench or on low chairs, resting on the legs an apron of heavy cloth. On the ground, on the one hand, a tangle of straw on which from time to time was threw a little water to make it more tender. On the other hand, in a bucket, a wicker treccinella, formed by circularly linked crolle: the magic of bind begins! It is an ancient tradition of Ischia to manufacture wicker baskets, round the edges more or less high, circular or oval baskets, with arched handle, made of willow and cane, baskets "with lace”.
