«Caffè Scorretto» «The broth of culture and the need for a unique calendar of events» – Il Golfo 24

Unlike those who are convinced that the opposite is true, this island is a constant ferment housed in the expressive framework of a creativity that naturally also boils underground. A dimension that expresses itself through a fascinating cultural dynamic, which, however, on the one hand, sometimes due to the germ of self-referentiality, on the other hand, due to the obstacles posed by those who see in “making culture” simply a means to appears and “doesn’t get there” – as in the fable of the fox with the grapes – it often meets with fiery resistance.

It may seem superfluous to talk about events or manifestations such as Michelangelo Messina’s film festival in Ischia dedicated to cinema seats. Or mention the international festival of philosophy, created by Raffaele Mirelli and the association InSophia, which started in the last few days and which is located between the La Mortella garden, the Guevara Tower and the Castle of Aragon where ecological Sundays fit together. In the impossibility of remembering all the cultural activities to the list, the individual initiatives that throw stones in the pond of the island’s immobility can be added. Salvatore Ronga’s commitment, for example to children and schools and to refer to his theater activity as the role of organizer of the event “Pe ‘terre assaje luntane”. The “Village” grows with the artistic contribution of associations such as the actress and director Milena Cassano who with the “Senso inverso teatro” promotes training and master classes after the summer, which also benefits tourism.

We can add events organized by Pro Loco, “Andar per Percorsi” and “Andar Per Cantine”, associations that live on human and voluntary contributions, or the efforts of the Antoniana library and the Circolo Sadoul.

Milena Cassano

Musical events cannot be excluded – those who deny that music is an integral part of culture are wrong – directed by Giuseppe Iacono “Divina” together with the “Amici di Sant’Angelo” association with the events planned for the end of September in the small village or ” La Mortella”. The same can be said about the many “composers” and cultural activists, book presentations and photo and painting exhibitions held at Villa Arbusto. In short, everyone can be attributed an added value that can mark time in alternative and thick moments. An island that has its roots in a real effervescence, however, risks “sinking” due to the lack of interest – or rather the superficial interest – of some administrations and of those who feel obliged to endorse their own personal and narrow opinion on things and things. . But no, it is not excessive to try to make a list by citing the names of those who in some way confirm the need to expand the educational and intellectual framework of the island of Ischia to make it effective even outside.

It is not an exaggeration to try to make a list by citing the names of those who in some way confirm the need to expand the educational and intellectual framework of the island of Ischia to make it effective even outside. The point therefore applies to this timeless agitation which sometimes unfortunately intertwines or overlaps with events that ‘happen’ on the same day. In short, moments that remain important appeals risk falling into the void like leaves from the cultural tree that is, on the contrary, alive and vibrant.

They don’t say what culture is. They show it to us in perfect harmony with the ecosystem of the island, although the separation between the organs and the absence of synergy between the initiators continue to prevail. In some cases, it is actually the administrations that increase the wild and primitive world of Ischia, giving space to those who accuse the only appointment as radical chic, imbued with snobbery or caste conspiracies. There are even those who consider them useless for development and then return to take refuge in the usual “mental lair full of prejudice”, perhaps to remove the unconscious fear that appears on the lips or floats in the feathers or even suggesting the futility of some encounters. It can therefore be said that prejudice reinforces moral decay and does so in the short term. In the absence of a calendar, in the form of annual programming, to which is added the “soup” of inertia and the absence of dialogue between the administrations, the events appear “solo”, vain, unable to cooperate with each other and are consequently valued means feeding the ego for them who suggests them.

On the contrary, all events are a manifesto. They represent the desire to reconnect to the sea of ​​culture, to reflection, to the desire to re-establish contact between tradition, people and with our roots. While the modern world overwhelms us with the imagination that passes through technology, through social media or through photographs and food, we must admit that on the island there is a need for sharing expressed in the desire to involve schools, boys and people. A shared common event calendar is one of the ways

Only in this way can we begin a process to make the island fabric no longer lazy but energetic, no longer rigid but flexible and constructive.
