This is a land rich with tradition, history and art. In the town of Grottaglie we find that the ceramic tradition brought to this area by the Greeks in the second century BC is still alive today. In fact Grottaglie, because of its large clay deposits, has been an uninterrupted center of ceramic production until today. And the contemporary master ceramist is Nicola Fasano. An ancestor of his, Francesco Nicola opened a ceramic store in Grottagle in 1623. These figures are inspired by the baroque ceramics of that period. But there is more. The Fasano workshop has been using an ancient oven but no one knew how old until an archeologists did some research. VO: The analysis done with carbon 14 has revealed that this oven dates back to 2,400 years ago. Generations of Fasanos have passed on their knowledge to their descendants. Today they have 30 ceramists, designers, modelers and enamelers , among the most talented in the field producing. ceramics known for their high quality and stylish design. Their work is now seen in the most prestigious stores and museums around the world. 18 generations of Fasanos have proven that by sticking passionately to their craft they can survive and thrive for centuries in an uncertain world of short lived fads. www.fasanocnf.it less

So for their Piazza Duomo restaurant they picked Enrico Crippa, an awarded chef who paints beautiful dishes in the kitchen and the artist Francesco Clemente who painted the walls. Of course their Barolo is always on the table. The Chef explains that the fresco it represents happiness, the vineyard, nature and freedom. He also remembers that Clemente was painting with natural colors, made with flowers and natural herbs so while painting the room always filled up with insects and bees which were following the scent as if they were in an open field instead of a room in the center of town. less

It was probably brought here in the 1400’s by Franciscan monks followers of St Francis. The sweet wine has been drunk by locals on weddings and Easter ever since. In the 70’s Arnaldo Caprai bought 10 acres of land and decided to focus on this old vine and for the first time make a dry red wine. In the 80 his son Marco who had graduated as an enologyst brought to the winery a desire to experiment and innovate. The Caprai’s convinced the University of Milan to come on board on a research project to clone the various strains of old Sagrantino vines which were on the verge of disappearing. The experiment was very successful and the rest is history. In 1992 the top appellation DPCG was awarded to sagrantino winning Caprai international recognition and many awards. Under strict Italian law, "Montefalco Sagrantino Secco" DOCG defines a wine guaranteed to come exclusively from Sagrantino grapes, exclusively from the Province of Perugia Secco means dry. The wine ages for 30 months, of which at least 12 in oak barrels. This wine is a DOCG, the highest-ranking category of Italian wine denominations Sagrantino di Montefalco, is a DOCG wine that must be made from 100 percent Sagrantino. Most wines in the world are made from the same 5-6 different types of grapes. Sagrantino di Montefalco is unique because it is made from a single grape and only made here. Sagrantino di Montefalco Collepiani first produced in 1979 is possibly the star of the collection. Caprai still produces Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito (also DOCG), the sweet wine that gave birth to the modern sagrantino . Today thanks to Caprai this wine once almost forgotten is drunk the world over. less

It was a windy, chilly day and the place was mostly empty except for a team of archeologists busily digging away near the Roman theater. Philippi features prominently in the New Testament. It was Paul and Silas’s first stop in Europe. It is the place where they were thrown into prison, only to be rescued by an earthquake. Later, Paul wrote a letter to the Philippian church that ultimately made its way into the cannon of the New Testament. While in Philippi, Paul met a woman named Lydia. Lydia was a “God fearer,” a term Luke and Paul used to describe Greeks who sympathized and worshiped with Jews. The ruins are about half a mile from a small creek. The Bible mentions that Paul met Lydia as she was washing cloths by a river. So, I drove down to check out this famous location. It is nothing more than a drainage ditch that runs past a garbage dump! www.frakesproductions.com less

Where do I start? -The history of the place is unbelievable...one night I stayed in a 12th century Refugio. The way even predates Christianity as it was used by the Celts following the Milky Way. -The people, I met people from all round the world, all doing the Camino for their own personal reason. The comradeship and friendships you make on the way are fantastic What did I get out of it? I took my video camera and have shot a doco. I lugged 18 kg of gear for nearly 800 km over 34 days...I lost 8 kilos Was it a spiritual experience? Yes, I started from square one with my belief system. I see the Camino as a purification process, a purification of body and of mind. Some say there are 3 stages, the physical, the mental or emotional and the spiritual. Physical - go thru pain, blisters etc, ends in a euphoric feeling similar to a runners high. Mental or emotional - when you hit the flat lands of the meseta between Burgos and Leon you've been walking for about 2 weeks and it is no longer fun, the distances between towns can be as much as 18 kms, Anything that doesn't allow you to be 'in the moment' acts as a distraction, e.g. looking at your watch, wanting a coffee in the next town. All the problem areas of your life well up in you and you are tested, many return to old addictions, for me cigarettes. This staged ends with a feeling of being 'in the moment' and appreciating the nature around you, meditating. Spiritual - The Camino becomes a walking meditation, you feel in tune with nature and I myself felt protected (by god) You learn to 'go with the flow' and not so much impose your own will on the happenings of the day. you start to realize a lot of your worries are your own making. I also had a miracle happen which informed me there is a god, my whole belief system has changed....I no longer believe in the term sin, but I do believe we make mistakes, have the free will to make mistakes and that even thinking a negative thought takes us away from our relationship with our creator. less

Sapientemente ristrutturata ed arredata da Elide e Vincenzo, presenta diverse soluzioni, ideali per soggiorno. Potrete rilassarvi, ritornando ai piaceri semplici della vita e nel nuovo ristorante, gustare piatti tipici rivisitati dagli chef Casadio e Ravaioli, in un'atmosfera calda e familiare. Nel periodo della vendemmia è possibile partecipare alla raccolta dell'uva nei vigneti dell'azienda. Questa caratteristica localita (toponimo) appare gia in antiche mappe, per indicare, forse, una stazione di posta romana. La Valle del Lamone, infatti, era attraversata da una strada (poco più che una mulattieria) che univa Faventia con la Toscana. La strada è ricordata nell'itinerario di Antonino Pio Augusto che fu imperatore nell'anno 138 d.C. Forse la strada medesima che dalla Fornace sale al Guangello e che riprende la via del cimitero fino alla Cavallina e al Mulino di Carrara. Poco oltre si trova la Villa degli Spada, il cui capostipite Paolo (1541-1631), valorizzando e sfruttando le saline di Cervia, divenne la persona piu ricca della Romagna.

Everybody know everybody from the butcher to the art gallery or the cafe. On the island, there is an hotel called Hotel du Jeu de Paume because it's placed in a former jeu de paume room (former tennis). It's cute, people are nice and polite (and it isn't always the case in Paris) and it is said to be one of the most romantic hotels in the capital. Enjoy! The video is in French. http://www.jeudepaumehotel.com less
