Living the environment with a touch of magic

When I talk about the nature of Ischia, between land and sea, I naturally think of paths in the woods, remains of hundreds of years by humans and animals, in succession and alternation between day and night, sharing the subtle trails we now call “paths”. We go on walkways that hunters, farmers, ranchers and gatherers have already explored, and continue to do, in the name of a beautiful ethics resistance: the echo of their steps seem to be heard when clambering through the evergreen spaces of the island heart, waiting to catch a glimpse of a rare botanical plant, hear the flutter of a buzzard, and the shadowy rustle of a wild rabbit, the rustle of a snake that touches the ferns, between snails and porcini mushrooms.

The sun, the island and winter

When, in 1988, Charles Knight oversaw the reissue of “Summer islands” by Norman Douglas (it was pub- lished in 1931) wrote that in the long introduction was necessary to reread those old pages «obviously out of season, away from the crowds and alienating bustle.

Ischia to drink, sips and speeches of love

Ten  years  ago, in  2006,  Andrea D’Ambra published a book impossible to  find,  “Storia del  vino  d’Ischia. La  viticoltura nell’isola verde dai greci  a  Salvatore D’Ambra”  (in collaboration  with Antonella Monaco), celebrating 40 years since the certification of  ‘Appellation d’origine contrôlée’ given to wines of Ischia.

Ischia is the summer light

«Who loves Ischia tells it». A year and a half ago this phrase, simple and crucial, has become my editorial motto. It accompanies by firmly embracing another strong idea, and not too obvious: «In the Mediterranean scenery, the island’s light is unique and special».
