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”.
