Scatti rubati (Stolen shots). Pictures from the movie set of L’Amica Geniale (My Brilliant Friend) and Carbone Archives.

Indefinitely delayed for reasons beyond the control of the Giardini Ravino Management.

The mysterious writer Elena Ferrante set some chapters of her worldwide bestseller on Ischia; and on Ischia the film director Saverio Costanzo shot several scenes of the TV fiction based on that novel. The journalist Pasquale Raicaldo documented, by shooting a series of pictures, a simple and genuine Ischia island from the past, set up for the movie set.

On the other hand, from Riccardo Carbone’s photograph Archive come vintage pictures depicting a different Ischia, i.e. the society and luxurious one. Both kinds of Ischia harmoniously cohexisted at that time.

Misterioso mediterraneo (Mysterious Mediterranean). Painting exhibition by Militina Loginova

 

Mostra Loginova Ischia Castello

For the first time, Militina Loginova arrived at Ischia in 2014; since that time the island captured her soul so that she started exploring it up to the deepest levels. In fact, she considers Ischia one of the most beautiful places in the world. By discovering the island in its natural richness and cultural diversity, the painter achieves her creative comprehension of life: her feelings express themselves through fine strokes of brush portraying nature or abstract themes performed in one go. "This is love", so Militina about her relationship with the island, of Ischia, able to quench her thirst of creativity and search for emotional balance. The never ending life movement and the perpetual motion of this artist blend and create a new imagine of the world, dominated by beauty and harmony. Colour purity and richness harmonize with her attention to details inspired by her attraction towards single segments; as a result, the portrayed landscapes enjoy a deep and intense dimension. In her graphic works the artist succeeds in getting a special image poetry and expressiveness thanks to her expert use of lines and colour sketches. Simplicity and elegance, sharpness and complexity in the nuance development, and composition balance give Militina Loginova’s graphic landscapes the value of all-round and thought-out works. Her paintings are transcribed from nature and transfer the space energy in which they were conceived. In the natural landscapes of different countries, both in paintings and graphics, the artist experiences the world art culture and shows her acute observation of environmental light-air effects. Thanks to her approach it is possible to create everytime a unique landscape imagine with the individual hallmark of the world perspective where it was conceived.   

Militina Loginova is a member of Artisti della Russia (Russian Artists), Associazione Internazionale dell'UNESCO (UNESCO International Association), Amici russi in Italia (Russian Friends in Italy) and Amici di Ischia (Ischia’s Friends). In 1995 she graduated at Scuola d'arte Nizhny Novgorod (Art School Nizhny Novgorod) and in 2001 graduated at Università Pedagogica (Pedagogic University). Her art exhibitions take place both in Russia and abroad. Furthermore, her works are included in private collections in Russia, Italy, UK, France, Principality of Monaco, Finland, Canada, Luxembourg, Turkey.

La leggenda di Nitrodi, il racconto lungo dedicato a Ischia e Napoli

Presentation of the book "La leggenda di Nitrodi" (The Nitrodi legend) by Tina Taliercio - Divergenze Publisher

Travel stories, a well-known icon of literature, take on a special value at our latitude, where travel & tourism is the most important economic activity. Dedicated to Ischia and Naples, the novel offers several keys to reading through the currentness of the themes but is also able to cross time. The landscape and cultural scenario of the “Green Island” and the capital city of South Italy wisely act as a frame of a story which discovers a natural and emotional habitat whose essence reveals itself with tenderness and energy.

SING

Workshop about the fundamental elements of the craft of acting through songs

Conducted by Alejandro Tomás Rodriguez,

assisted by Robin Gentien and Pierre Lauth-Karson

Over two days, participants will be involved in ancient Latin-American call and response songs. In the collective sessions of a cappella songs they will explore the living dynamics arising while singing, dancing and interacting each other. All members will be led towards the discovery of the ways their body and mind are involved.

This approach is based on some elements of acting. Initially, one will examine the basic principles of the action. Then participants will face simple but complex duties, such as: how repeating a series of actions, reactions and connections discovered during the sessions without losing one’s vital core?  

 

Who can apply

The workshop is targeted at actors, dancers, musicians, students and whoever is interested in the role of performer; there are no age limits, and a previous professional experience is not compulsory.  

How to apply

A short C.V. along with a covering letter can be sent to: anna.matarese72@gmail.com. All the received applications will be forwarded to the three teachers.

Participants are to bring clothes for the singing sessions and the physical work. Detailed information will be sent later by email.

Rodriguez, Gentien and Lauth-Karson are carrying out several creative efforts which also include ENGINE, their original performance.

What do Neapolitan culture and Taoist philosophy have in common? In the journey of man in search of his original spirit, how do the Taoist and Neapolitan visions meet? Neapolitan culture expresses a constant acceptance of reality as it is, "in the here and now". In Taoist thought "here and now" means presence, a mind free from conditioning and judgment. This is the only way we can experience reality directly. So, day and night, life and death, good and evil, all the separations and dualities created by the conditioned mind leave space for the sense of unity and harmony present in every moment of life. Isn't this a vision capable of resolving the difficulties of everyday life in a harmonious way, favoring a balanced sense of well-being? Is this not the DNA of Neapolitan thought? The ancient Pythecusa, heir of the Greek civilization, a volcanic and fertile land rich in natural remedies for your health, represents the ideal place to undertake a path of well-being for the body and the spirit. In this suggestive scenario, we propose meditative and martial arts practice, such as Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong.
