IN THE BALY OF THE JUDGMENT OF AN IDIOT: THE REVIEW AS A PUNISHMENT
Waiting for the appointment with my webmaster for the regular maintenance of the camping site, I take a quick look at his positioning with respect to some search "queries", to evaluate the retouching of some "meta tags" (not that much changes but, according to the essay, every fly liver is substance ...)
From all research, using keywords and combinations obviously relevant, there is a constant: like parsley, TripAdvisor is omnipresent. At the end of this 2018, there is nothing to be surprised about. TripAdvisor is one of the most visited sites in the world . It can be considered a sort of Michelin Guide online, constantly updated, having a disproportionately larger number of inspectors, but not paid. TripAdvisor uses mechanisms from social networks to turn most of its passive "users" into active "taxpayers": as well as in the sci-fi dystopia of Matrix anyone is potentially an agent...
"DA DOVE VIENI? TERRAFERMA, TERRACHIUSA". REFLECT TO SIDING
In his touching monologue, the talented Igiebor Eseosa tells of an evening, an evening in any one of the many Libyan concentration camps where migrants are forced to live crammed like animals, waiting uncertain and indeterminate of their turn for the crossing of the Mediterranean. Some jailers enter the warehouse to snatch a six-year-old girl from the arms of a desperate mother who begs them to have mercy. The girl is raped by the inhuman herd all night long. It is then rejected in the arms of the mother, unconscious, bleeding and swollen.
The "dose" has risen from the story of a woman who has died in the birth of a child with his son almost born, complaining of labor, simply annoyed his tormentors.
From father and husband, in hindsight, I could also have preferred an energetic and well-balanced fist in the belly listening to the reports of the daily atrocities in the Libyan...
HOW TO START AN AGRICAMPING IN AN EUFEMISTICALLY SHORTSIGHTED SYSTEM
It was the late summer of 2009 and from my uncles 'cellar, Vini Sultana , all' dusk, I watched the vineyard and the olive grove planted long ago by my far-sighted grandfather. There the sunsets are quite bewitching, perhaps due to the softness of the hills and the countryside of Pachino, perhaps due to the ancient charm of the ruins of old farmhouses, perhaps due to the relaxing permanence of the Iblei in the distance. And there, probably also influenced by the many wonderful years spent in scouting, I thought I saw tents among the olive trees. No, it was not about any abusive camper but simply of my galloping imagination in the throes of having to combine something for my future subsistence ... I was in fact completing my course of study in philosophy and soon I could have the title of Doctor Magistrale in Contemporary Philosophy, degree theoretically "qualifying" for teaching....
ISPICA AND THE LOGGIATO DEL SINATRA
Ispica is a quiet town of Ragusa, to which in 1693 it touched a fate similar to that of Noto: half destroyed by the earthquake, it was largely rebuilt in a different location from the original site. The ancient city developed within the southernmost part of the Cava d'Ispica, a river valley between the Iblei mountains. Only the neighborhoods built around the simply damaged (but left standing) churches of Sant'Antonio and del Carmine were kept in the original site, districts that still preserve the irregular layout typical of medieval villages. The new city was rebuilt outside the quarry, on a chessboard, with straight and wide roads. Called Hyspicae fundus by the Romans, probably referring to the quarry, became Spaccaforno in medieval times to officially reacquire the ancient lemma in 1935, Italianized in Ispica. Its reconstruction took place according to the architectural canons...
NOTO, NON PLUS ULTRA OF THE SICILIAN BAROQUE
That Noto, a town of just under 25,000 inhabitants, is the fourth Italian municipality by extension, speaks volumes about its historical importance and political influence, which saw Syracuse as its rival in south-eastern Sicily. The history of Noto is millenary, probably pre-existing to the Greek colonization. However, the Noto we know today was rebuilt 8 km further south than the original site , following the devastating earthquake that razed it in 1693. This refounding work has in fact turned out to be a laboratory of brilliant engineering and artistic minds of 18th century Europe, able to give light to the urban plan of refined baroque architecture known today as the historical center of Noto, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002. The historic center is a succession of palaces, churches, squares and stairways, built in limestone and sandstone which gives the...
ELORO, AN DIVING TO THE FEET OF THE GREEK COLOGNE
Eloro was the first Syracuse colony , founded on a hill overlooking the sea, at the mouth of the Tellaro , at the end of the VIII century BC. There are ruins of temples, walls, necropolis, agora and funerary monuments such as the Colonna Pizzuta . And it remains especially bitter in the mouth because it is an abandoned archaeological site at the mercy of tombaroli equipped even with bulldozers , in search of archaeological treasures to be allocated to the black market. However, the "fate" adverse to this site has less recent origins: the small Greek theater dating back to the end of IV, partly carved into the rock, visible from the path leading to the beach, was cut by fascist ignorance in order to achieve a water channel for the reclamation of the area. Leitmotiv of Sicilian architectural history is the construction of buildings by the dominating civilization of turn, on...
INFIORATA OF NOTO 2018: IN THE TEACHING OF THE PROSPERITY
The Infiorata di Noto does not start in Via Nicolaci to end in the steps of the Church Montevergini. The entire city of Noto opens up to the event, wrapping it in a festivities with unmistakable late-medieval references, with flag wavers in the procession on imposing rhythmic figures played by snare drums and drums, in front of a hypothetical court netina in period clothes under the portici of Palazzo Ducezio. The convulsive parade of a lively dragon, on a frenetic drumming to accompany its movements, bears witness to the dedication of this XXXIX edition of the Infiorata : China in bloom - The Silk Road. The interesting aspect of the Infiorata is the ability of to go beyond the territorial and artistic boundaries, acting as a sounding board and the glue of very different fields. So the Loggia del Mercato, Piazza San Camillo, Piazza Val di Noto, Piazza XVI Maggio, host stands of...
A NATURE RESERVE LIKE VENDICARI IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE BLUE FLAG?
With extreme amazement this year I'm finding that the beaches of Vendicari have definitely disappeared from the list of beaches awarded with the Blue Flag. How is that possible? How is it possible that one of the most immaculate nature reserves in Sicily has been excluded from the famous guarantee certificate of the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education)? From a reading to attribution criteria, on the official website, it is easy to see that the assignment of the Blue Flag responds to parameters that a nature reserve like Vendicari can not satisfy. Here are the main reasons.
The FEE contemplates the "officially" seaside resorts that request it. In Vendicari, the bathing is in a certain sense "tolerated", in the radical respect of the environment: in fact all the "beach" behaviors are explicitly forbidden at each entry by ad hoc signage, such as the use of balls, rackets or...
