Foto1

After 2 years of pandemic and stop of important events, a sort of normality finally returns in this Easter 2022 in Ischia.
It is with great pleasure and pride that the Actus Tragicus Association is exultant in presenting the artistic event for which it was born on Good Friday, April 15, 2022. And it also does so with great surprise, because the possibility of achieving all this was only made known last week, but the challenge was accepted with great enthusiasm, also thanks to the courageous support of the municipal administration.

 

Easter colored eggs and the game of "Tozza tozza"

uova

Children and youngsters, at the first warmth of “summer”, removed shoes and caluosci (wood and leather clogs), and the most fortunate, shoes, walking barefoot on the lava stone slabs already warm. In the short shorts pockets, there were two things, essentialat that time...One was the ubiquitous strummolo (the Spin with string) and the other was the tiramolla (the sling).The latter served to undermine the lizards and, with very little success, small migratory birds skipping plant to plant. Before Palm Sunday instead, in all homes, grandmothers and mothers prepared the eggs dyed red, boiling them with natural dyes, roots or other.The “red eggs” were instant prey to us children and teenagers, boys and girls.Happy, with our egg in hand, we played, for hours, in spaces that smelled of spring and freedom.We played tozza tozza.«When Buonocore ladies put us in a circle to teach the gospel now, the catechism or more dull (only for girls) “good manners” behavior, there was always joker who intervened», recalls my friend Odette Del Dotto.«Signuri, to me, told me Barbone, that the fact of the red eggs, is not a thing of Jesus, but belongs to the pagan history.

Scandinavian goddess of spring was the symbol of the resurrection of all nature and was worshiped at the beginning of this season.

  • We will be arriving from Roma by train to Napoli Centralia, where do we ask taxi driver to take us to get to Ischia?

    Thursday, 06 April 2017  Daniel

    Good morning,

    when you arrive at the train station, you will find a taxi dispatch close to the station to reach the port of Naples to Ischia (Beverello for hydrofoils or Porta di Massa for ferries). Once you arrive to Ischia you can reach your accommodation by bus station close to the port.

    Kind regards
