Heraclitus

Of Water and Time

 by Raffaele Mirelli

In dialogue with Giuseppe Di Meglio and Luciano Iacono at the Sources of Nitrodi Nymphs

From the Absolute to the Principle, as Hegel of Talete (the philosopher par excellence) said, from Aristotle defined the first “wise” of a long and troubled history of thoughts and thoughts.
The human being is composed of water; all organisms contain it in a small basin called body. It is precisely on our body that flows, miraculous, divine, to whom we are devoted as a symbol of salvation.

La Mortella: The island surrounded by the garden

Dialogue with Alessandra Vinciguerra

Entering La Mortella is an experience that renews the sensitivity of the spirit. In March, the colors, transformed into a scale of chrome that passes through an autumn and a winter of decline, expose the newfound vigor that integrates elements like earth and water in the most varied forms of nature.
The trunk of the trees, the leaves, the flowers and the fruits represent layers of life reaching out to the sky and the hidden roots of the beliefs that support the gravity of a victorious harmony.
The meeting between the visible and the invisible, between heaven and earth, is celebrated here to our senses.
Today we meet Alessandra Vinciguerra, director of the garden, not in an interview, but in a dialogue that wants to highlight Philosophy, that “humanistic” side that sustains and maintains this island surrounded by another island, the human one.

Antonio Macrì, eulogy of chromatic harmony

 An overwhelming crowd of friends, admirers, acquaintances, simple people gathered. On a Sunday last February - in the church of Portosalvo in Ischia, to share the sincere emotion of the greeting to Antonio Macrì, last performer of a successful and special generation of artists that have been appreciated and loved far from the borders of Ischia. A popular painter, a shy man, he left a very long track, distributed in an infinity of private collections.

The best water in the world

I was almost 10 when with my bike, a “venti” with the frame at an angle,
crashed near the Calabbresiello balcony, in Via Roma, in the center of Barano. Knees full of blood, such as the right shoulder and the front, a disaster. Today people would not lose a moment to go to Lacco Ameno, to the hospital.
Mom and Dad had neither car nor a driving license. So my parents knew exactly what was done in these cases. They had learned from their elders.

The botanical Ravino Garden, in search of that path of Eden

«One more year for the Botanical Giardino Ravino becoming path beyond space and time to the Divine research»

One more year, one more unit of the current date, 2017. A more year to MERISTEMA, the annual meeting of Giardini Ravino, the X edition celebrating the bicentenary of the birth of Henry D. Thoreau, transcendentalist philosopher, considered one of the most underrated minds of America. As misunderstood his name, as great his influence: Tolstoy, Gandhi, ML King, Mandela, the beat generation, folk singer, Bob Dylan and Patti Smith were inspired by Thoreau and also filmmakers such as Peter Weir with “Dead Poets Society” and Sean Penn with “Into the wild”. Anarchists, radicals, pacifists, vegetarians, environmentalists, advocates of descent happy, supporters of the gift economy, and even designers owe much to Thoreau.
