Venice is a city that emerged from the sea.

The name “gondola” comes from the word “boat”. This definition is given in the Venetian dictionary of Matinelli. Another name is “sea eel” (gonger). Indeed, gracefully, silently, it seems to glide along the surface of the river, easily fit into turns and turn around in place. The boat is 11 meters long and 1.40 meters wide. These are generally accepted sizes; you cannot change them. The right side is slightly narrower than the left (the difference is almost 30 centimeters). Due to asymmetry, it is maneuverable, it is easy to rotate and even rotate in one place. The bottom of the gondola is flat and therefore it is stable. It is controlled by one oar, so that even in a narrow channel two boats can stretch out. A boatman stands behind. In contrast to his nose is a metal tip with six protrusions (mind you, it’s just so many areas in Venice). Another function is to show the height and probability of passage under the bridge. Gondola Continue reading

Naples Underground – a parallel world of the city

… This is a real “parallel world”, which is under modern Naples. A quiet city where you can feel the breath of an ancient volcanic sandstone – tuff, and time seems to have stopped. Homer and Virgil accompany us through an incredible network of underground passages, caves and streets, as if taken from legends. A story that has not yet been written. A story waiting to be told. This is sottosuolo, or “bowels” – the underworld of Naples. Parallel world of Naples Ancient ritual crypts and underground sanctuaries – hypogee, ancient Greek caves, ancient Roman aqueducts, medieval tunnels, secret Bourbon tunnels and underground passages … All this is underground Naples, one of the largest urban dungeon systems in the world. Under the streets of the city there are spaces of millions of cubic meters, worked
out over almost three thousand years; moreover, as a rule, abandoned. This is the result of neglect by the Continue reading

A fascinating trip to Paestum – the city of temples

Ah, there was a time when digging a little deeper and stumble upon Pompeii. And now almost every square centimeter of the earth is studied, passed. It remains only to connect the imagination in order to see the contours of ruined temples in Tibetan rocks, which is reminiscent of the search for oil in a garden plot, and then scribble about this “find” in leading newspapers. Oh, there was a time of real discoveries! … Paestum stood in desolation for hundreds of years, and this causes sincere amazement. How could a building of this scale not be noticed ?! After all, this territory was not subjected to any natural disasters: neither to you, volcanic eruptions, nor earthquakes, nor to brodesism, nor tsunamis. And the city was revived only in the XVIII century. Thanks to the road builders of Charles III for finding Greek temples, and then to aristocrats, dilettantes in archeology, but who knows a lot about collecting and court scholars of the Kingdom of Naples. In the wake of Continue reading

How to cook an Italian dish – perfect lasagna

If you will make the dough yourself, take durum wheat flour – Farina di grano duro (in Italian) or Hartweizengriess (in German) The Italians say: “Pizza is a lover, and pasta is a mother and wife.” The rest of the peoples agree and call the Italians “pasta”, and they are not offended. There are hundreds of different pasta dishes in Italy. And one of the most popular is climbing. It is so tasty and democratic that it easily argues with pizza. Lasagna – Greetings from Antiquity What is Lasagna now? These are several layers of dried and subsequently cooked or baked wheat dough, interspersed with various fillings – from minced meat to vegetable or mushroom stew, sprinkled with cheese on top. All this splendor is baked in the oven until golden brown. And the climb began (as, by the way, the same pizza), with the usual tortillas. And not in Italy, but in Greece. It was also baked from wheat flour (a rarity) and was called Continue reading
