Estimado Hon. Marcos Irizarry,

Estimados amigos,



Esperando Capalbioart-laparguera (”Aspettando Capalbioart“) me parecía un sueño..muchas veces pensé a cuanto hubiera querido estar más cerca para poder disfrutar estos meses intensamente

junto a ustedes. Pero, esta oportunidad, ha creado un enlace y un contínuo contacto entre mi tierra y mis días, y puedo decir que decir que he estado viviendo otra vez en mi islita querida.


Nuevas amistades han surgido, nuevos perfiles de personas que en un modo o en el otro me han hecho sentir que ”ce la potevamo fare“ = ¡que lo podíamos lograr!!


Y aquí estamos, a pocos meses del inicio..en una espera maravillosa para compartir con ustedes nuestros talentos y las experiencias de la que llamamos, ”mi gente“ !! y la de otros Mundos que fueron en muchos casos, nuestros orígenes..


Una vez, de adolescente, un queridísimo amigo y compañero de escuela me dijo:-” pero entiendes la suerte que tenemos?“ y entre tantas, le pregunté cual? ......” - de haber nacido aquí, de haber nacido en esta tierra, en nuestro Puerto Rico.“


Recuerdo siempre esas palabras con emoción y con ternura, y cuando a menudo me preguntan de donde soy o cuanto tiempo llevo en el extranjero, mi respuesta es siempre la misma..vivo aquí, desde hace tiempo pero solo parte del día...


....el resto de mi día? ¡Pues.....lo paso en otro sitio.....ahí donde nací ....en mi Puerto

(Me hubiera gustado estar con ustedes para empezar ”Aspettando Capalbioart-LaParguera, junto a Sigrid y a todos aquellos que han creído en esta nuestra pequeña adventura)


Sono felice di aver potuto constatare la grossa disponibilità della cultura portoricana verso altri orizzonti e di questo, me ne ha sempre parlato Sigrid, fiera del suo popolo e della sua isola!


(Me siento feliz de haber podido confirmar la grande disponibilidad de la cultura puertorriqueña hacia otros horizontes y de ésto me ha siempre hablado Sigrid, orgullosa de su gente y de su Isla)


Vi aspettiamo l’anno prossimo a Capalbio e nel frattempo, che viva il festival!!

Puerto Rico le ofrece increíble diversidad. En una isla pequeña, 100 millas de largo por 35 de ancho, usted podrá experimentar miles de años de historia y cuatro bien definidas culturas.

Investigue antiguos parques indígenas ceremoniales, compare dos de las iglesias españolas coloniales más antiguas y de interesante arquitectura, o vea una plantación de café del Siglo XIX. Explore un par de estructuras tipo castillo de las más grandes y complejas que los españoles hayan construído en el Nuevo Mundo, o únase a la era moderna visitando el radiotelescopio de Arecibo o la destilería de ron Bacardí.

Esto es tan solo un puñado de opciones de los tantos lugares que usted puede visitar en Puerto Rico. Le invitamos a separar algunos días, o algunas semanas, para explorar nuestra cultura e historia.

En Porta del Sol usted encontrará algunas de las mejores playas para surfear. La zona playera comienza al este de Isabela y continúa alrededor de la costa hasta Añasco. Más adelante está la gran ciudad porteña de Mayagüez, con su renombrado zoológico, su histórico teatro y su hermosa plaza. Si continúa por esa costa, encontrará más playas, excelentes restaurantes de mariscos y sorprendentes bosques costeros. Por ejemplo, podría viajar desde la Reserva del Bosque Estatal de Maricao al Bosque Seco de Guánica. En toda el área encontrará Paradores y Mesones Gastronómicos, una Reserva Biosférica Mundial o un hermoso faro restaurado.

Lajas


El valle de Lajas es famoso por su cultivo principal, la suculenta y jugosa ”Piña Cabezona“. No pierda la oportunidad de degustar una en cuanto vea un puesto de venta. También se conoce como la ”Ciudad del Obispo“ ya que un antiguo obispo de la Iglesia Católica de Puerto Rico nació y se crió en Lajas.


Capalbio is situated on a woody hill 217 meters above sea level a short distance from the Via Aurelia. Until 1960 the territory of Capalbio was included within the Comune of Orbetello. The last patch of coast of southern Tuscany, Capalbio is characterised by low hills which taper off into a plain as they approach the sea. 

In remote times this plain was an extensive swamp bounded by sandy tombolos. This land, once plagued by malaria and roving highwaymen, preserves a multitude of animal and plant species which formerly populated the entire Maremma. Thanks to the abundance of game, especially boar, but also hares, wild rabbits, pheasants and swamp birds, hunting is widely practised in the area, and many dishes of the local cuisine reflect ths activity. The boar festival is heid each year in September.

 This traditional holiday at summer's end features performances by the "butteri," the Maremma's equestrian herdsmen. Mentioned for the first time as the property of the Abbey of the Three Fountains in a 12th century document, Capalbio subsequently belonged to the Aldobrandeschi of Santa Fiora, who long disputed its possession with the Comune of Orvieto, and then to the Orsini. 

In 1416 Capalbio came under the sway of the Republic of Siena, and the area began to develop. In 1557 the territory of Capalbio was annexed to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, to which it belonged until 1860.

  In these three centuries of rule, Capalbio’s economic situation steadily deteriorated, leading to the depoputation of the countryside and, in the 19th century, the spread of roving brigands. In 1896, Domenico Tiburzi, the most infamous of the Maremma's bandits, was killed and buried in Capalbio.

  The town is compietely enclosed within a double set of Sienese walls, along which extensive stretches of the suggestive patrol bays can still be walked. Capalbio has a medieval town plan, with narrow, curved streets climbing to the top of the hill dominated by the Rocca Aldobrandesca. The double-bay Porta Senese, which is crowned by a tower, is the gateway to the historic centre.

 A marbie inscription on the gate commemorates the 1416 restoration of the walls by the Sienese. The road continues past the so-called Arco Santo (Holy Arch), capped by a marble bust of the Emperor Hadrian, and climbs to the Church of St. Nicholas, perhaps dating to the 12th century, standing at the foot of the rocca. The simple facade has an ogival portal topped by an inscription commemorating the enlargement and restoration of the church in 1466. 

The interior is a single-bay structure with a rectangular apse and side chapels. The Romanesque capitals with animal and plant motifs and several frescoes of the 15th and 16th century Umbrian school are quite interesting.

 Over the centuries Capalbio's Rocca has undergone continuous modifications which have gradually transformed it into a patrician residence.  A square tower with an inclined base rises directly in front of the Church of St. Nicholas. The Collacchioni Palace, built over the old structures of the castle in the early decades of this century, leans against the tower's north side. 

In the palace several rooms complete with their original furnishings can be visited. Among these is the socalled Sala Puccini, which preserves an Austrian piano from 1823 which the famous composer himself played. Outside the walls is the small Oratory of Providence.

  It is Renaissance in type and was heavily restored in the 19th century. Inside the oratory is an admirable fresco that has been attributed to a painter close to the circle of Pinturicchio representing the Madonna With Child Between Sts. Jerome and Sigismund. 

PESCIA FIORENTINA

To the east of Capalbio lies the hamlet of Pescia Fiorentina. Once the site of a customs house between the Grand Duchy and the Church State, iron-works were established here in the 15th century.  

To operate, the works exploited the energy of the Chiarone torrent, and they ere still partially visible, although converted into farms.  Situated in the nearby locality of Garavicchio is the Garden of the Tarot Cards, an original creation by the French artist Niki De Saint Phalle. Amidst hilly verdant woods stand the large polychrome sculptures covered in glass, ceramic and mirrors which were inspired by the 22 most important mysteries of the tarot deck.

LAKE OF BURANO

The road continuing along the coast past Capalbio Scalo reaches the Lake of Burano, a remnant of the vast swamp that once covered the entire plain. The swamp dried up because of the effects of the marine sediments and reclamation projects. The Buranaccio Tower stands at the centre of the narrow sandy isthmus separating lake from sea. 

The tower was built by the Spaniards in the 16th century to guard the southeastem border of the Garrison State. Now private property, the tower is a low, square construction with an access ramp crowned by brackets and crenellation and is simitar in type to the Rocca of Porto Santo Stefano.  The lake is home to the Lake of Burano Nature Preserve, created in 1967 and the oldest of the World Wildlife Fund's protected areas. 

 A multitude of bird species stop here, and aficionados can bird watch from special observation points. The provincial Pedemontana road leads to the Capalbiaccio Hill, today lying within the Capalbio Farm Holiday-Hunting Centre.

 On the grounds of the centre one can visit the extensive remains of the old Tricosto Castle, documented in the 12th century and destroyed by the Sienese in 1417. Amidst the thick vegetation lie the ruins of many collapsed structures and imposing vestiges of an enclosure wall and the walls of a church. 

On the Monteti Hill north-east of Capalbio stand the scant remains of a medieval settlement from which, tradition has it, the earliest inhabitants of Capalbio were descended.

 On the Via Aurelia, just prior to the border with Latium, is the elegant Villa Boncompagni, formerly a pontifical customs house near the then state boundary.
