Sant’Anna, an endless charm

The Sant’Anna celabration dates back to a tradition of the last century. On July 26, each year, pregnant women went in procession to worship the Mother of Madonna who was in a chapel in Cartaromana Bay. They were accompanied by a procession of anglers’ boats, which for the occasion adorned the hull with bushes and flower garlands.


Futura and Malafemmina

Walking through the streets of Sant’Angelo to the discovery of the summer season is synonymous with two things: being on vacation and coming across stories that have written about the past, which is then present that is then the future. An anti-cosmopolitan metropolis that lives on stories over time.

Of fire and of sea

Fire fountains in the middle of the sea. Directly from the belly of the earth, they created the small island with the characteristic rounded shape that makes it even today unmistakable, in front of the southern coast of the big island. And only a narrow strip of sand unites it to the giant dominated by Epomeo.

Rigenerated eyes: Gilles, Bargheer, Levy

Great painters have frequented Sant’Angelo in the last century. Werner Gilles arrived in Sant’Angelo in 1936, under a self-imposed exile, because he was part of that strong Teutonic expressionism that was defined as “degenerate” by National Socialism. From 1937 to 1941 he found a small winter shelter and since 1951 he frequented the village assiduously to devote himself to painting.

Stars, set and anglers

It was 1960 and even the quiet fishing village on the southern side of the island began to be a tourist destination. An ideal landing place for the yachts of characters seeking tranquility. Far from the paparazzi just launched from the “Dolce Vita”, Sant’Angelo guaranteed freedom of stay even to the top-end characters, with crowds of fans: Gina Lollobrigida, Mina, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, at the beginning of their dazzling love story. There was a white piano in the square below the tower on the summer nights of the 1980s.


La Mortella in music

Ischia, an island full of hidden gems. The charm of the landscape, the beauty of the beaches, the value of the spa envied and admired all over the world, alongside another cultural heritage certainly not less important. There are parks and gardens, located in the outskirts of the build up areas, which give richness that cannot be found on other islands.


Going through pastures

Going through pastures, the path that leads from Bocca di Serra to Corbaro Park, the place where everything is possible...

Andar per Pascoli è un’idea rubata, un sogno che si realizza, un racconto condiviso da chi è stanco dell’oridinarietà. Andar per Pascoli è il nostro modo di offrire un’emozione a chi ha bisogno di staccare la spina e sfuggire dallo stress. Queste sono le parole con cui Nino e Max, gestori di Corbaro Park e instancabili sognatori, raccontano il nuovo viaggio intrapreso.

Giulio Grablovitz on Ischia

a scientist suspended between earth and sky

by Graziano Ferrari*

"January 27, 1886 - I take up residence on the Island of Ischia Ischia, provisionally at the Casina Reale".
With these few words, less than three years after the destructive earthquake of Casamicciola, Giulio Grablovitz (1846-1928) recorded in his diary the beginning of his stay in Ischia, starting one of the most extraordinary scientific experiences in the field of Earth sciences from the late 1880’s up to the 1910’s.

The Philosophy Festival

In the month of the pink sunset

I have been passionate about this philosophy festival since its first edition in 2015: I was in Ischia in the last week of September, lost in this wonderful atmosphere of change that the island offers with its livery of unique colors. Where I come from, a small city in northern Europe, we are always lurking in September, thinking that the weather will soon change abruptly, leaving space for the autumn colors, the leaves that accompany the rivers in gravity, in a course of fresh water, inexorable, in continuous movement, fast and greedy of past.
