Deep passion for the sea of Ischia

A life to discover the wonders and secrets of the seabed

Summer 1960, I was twelve. The gift of a Cressi Sub Pinocchio optic diver’s mask gave me the opportunity to cultivate a passion that over the years has grown so much that today, as soon as the weather and sea conditions permit, I dive for snorkeling, long swims or sub jokes fishing all year round.
My evolution as Homo Delphinus (to use Mayol) allowed me to live wonderful experiences thanks to the sea of our island, which still reserves incredible and pleasant surprises. In addition, every day I enrich the discovery of fish species and behavior of the same.
In the sixties, the visibility in the sea of Ischia exceeded thirty meters. I remember big groupers that made fun of putting in candle, then quickly running away in impregnable nests as soon as we tried to approach them.


The nymphs of health

«Every disease has a natural cause and can be cured by natural and recognizable means » Hippocrates 460 BC

Already 2,000 years ago, in the hydrotherapy Park Nitrodi in Buonopane, in the hamlet of Barano, were practiced what we now know as cures.


St. Vito: Legend, history and tradition

“If you put together all the relics attributed to St. Vito, you would form three bodies!” Cristoforo Milone says, author of a life of San Vito. More ironically, Don Giuseppe Regine, Parish priest of San Vito in Forio since 26/10/1969, says “we’ll be looking at a dinosaur!”. All this testifies the prevalence, in Italy and abroad, - should not be forgotten, in fact, that the “remains” of the saint are preserved in the Cathedral of Prague – of the cult of the young martyred in 303, during the persecutions of Diocletian.


A walk along trails

The explosion of colors and scents of this time that envelops the land into one big warm hug, transports us into the middle of spring and makes sure that our senses, from the dormant winter days, wake up and enrichment of the marvels that “the green island” offers. There is no better time of year to bring out the boots, comfortably worn, leave for a moment the coast and into the heart of Ischia.



In one of the most picturesque streets of the historical center of Forio, with a balanced and absolutely original look comes Equobar EloArt Gallery. Equobar is a concept that goes beyond the idea of entertainment, catering or hospitality, is the discreet and silent challenge in different lifestyles conformed to the rampant consumerism and without ethics and often pay little attention to the quality of the environment and social relations.


Of nectar and wine

We are glad to inform our guests, but also the many islanders who read us, that our island offers wine, olive oil and biological jams.

No, this is not an advertising insertion or we want to review a label, but we want to share with you the success of a generation of farmers and islanders growers, who have made the land a business of cultivating without ever ‘cutting the roots’, deeply rooted in the rural culture that has always dominated and characterized the identity of Ischia.
