Perca, Trentino Alto Adige


The earth pyramids in Alto Adige are a special natural phenomenon that comes about in particular terrain, usually after a landslide or an unhinging of the earth.

The main cause of the formation of earth pyramids is the continuous alternation of periods of torrential rain and drought. These phenomena, in particularly friable terrain, over the years, are eroding increasingly the ground and are forming such earth pyramids. Usually the pyramids are formed in terrain very well sheltered from wind so that they cannot be damaged by it.

Moreover, the life of the earth pyramids is strongly dependent on the climate which reigns during the time in which it is shaped by the rock that covers it.

Valli di Comacchio, Emilia Romagna

The Valli di Comacchio, meaning "fish basins of Comacchio", are a series of contiguous brackish lagoons situated to the south of Comacchio, close to the Adriatic coast of the Emilia-Romagna region in northern Italy. They lie within the comuni of Comacchio and Argenta in the province of Ferrara and the comune of Ravenna in the province of Ravenna.
The area, covering almost 17,000 hectares within the Parco regionale del Delta del Po, the regional park of the Po Delta, is classified as a Site of Community Importance and a Special Protection Area. It is also rated internationally important by the Ramsar Convention for the conservation and sustainable utilization of wetlands.
The Valli di Comacchio are a lagoon and wetland complex comprising four principal basins.
The lagoon was formed around the tenth century due to subsidence of the soil and silting of the coastal zone. At the time of formation, the area was flooded with fresh water from the recurrent flooding of the rivers. From the sixteenth century on, they gradually were filled with sea water resulting in the modern appearance of brackish water-filled basins.
The Valli di Comacchio are home to the greatest variety of birds of Italy. There are over 300 species of birds such as flamingos, black-winged stilts, egrets and other herons and kingfishers. In addition, there are fish such as bream, eels, sea bass, mullet, and sole. Foxes are common.

No doubt, and the wonderful cities: Urbino, Ascoli Piceno, Ancona ....
It also has a characteristic brick color, lighter than for example the construction of Lombardy, Emilia Romagna....

Yes, you're right. The colours of brick buildings in the Marche region are brighter also than those of neighbouring regions Umbria and Toscana (more red coloured). Central Italy has its own diversity inside the diversity of whole Italy.

Traditions of Italy

Festivals of Lights

Electrically-lit luminarias are used all over Southern Italy.
It's a VERY STRONG tradition to use these decorative lights in the streets and squares in celebration of the festivities.

Festivities were always characterized by use of light sources to make sense of joy and happiness. Before the invention of electricity and the light bulb this effect was achieved by using torches with tarred canvas and then small vessel containing oil of low quality lamps ("clear"). Later more rich decorations were built with wooden poles and arches so-called "Parature" hunging the oil lamps that were lit one by one.
Finally, the use of electricity and light bulbs made everything easier.

In Italy there are many leading factories of luminarias selling and hiring their products all over the world.

Here some examples: ( most of them from one city: Scorrano - Puglia)
