By Enrico Remmert,Luca Ragagnin

Di borghi in castelli, scapicollare da una collina all'altra, tra paesaggi struggenti, tappeti di vigne, frutteti, osti e cantinieri. Andare su e giù e poi giù e su, shakerare storie, cibi, vini, uno di qua, uno di là, eccetera.Questa è un'avventura in cui los angeles terra natia è un'Atlantide e l'acqua che los angeles sommerge è il mare delle cantine sociali, i fiumi delle enoteche, i laghi dei piccoli produttori, i rigagnoli delle voci di chi sosta nelle taverne e nei bar di piazza dei paesini. Un viaggio con i finestrini abbassati che racconta tutto quanto si vede, si ascolta, si beve in quella terra colta e schiva. E intanto il posto che attraversi ti fa perdere l'orientamento e trovare l'anima. Nell'arco di poche decine di chilometri incontri vitigni-corazzata in grado di conquistare il mondo, nocciole tartufi lumache agnolotti nell'ordine che si vuole e secondo los angeles propria personale capienza, i castelli e i giardini del Monferrato, i musei degli alambicchi, dei cavatappi, i sentieri partigiani, una Banca del vino e una sarabanda di Genii Locorum da fare impallidire una astemissima enciclopedia delle patrie lettere.

Download Sciamenescià: Strade, randagi, venti e souvenir di Puglia by Carlos Solito PDF

By Carlos Solito

El Paiso, paese immaginario di un Salento randagio e irriverente, è un'indefinita zona di frontiera fatta di scorze pietrose, sole che non perdona, cori di cicale, venti a caro prezzo, case tinte con latte di calce e masserie che emergono come isole dal mare di ulivi. Con un registro beat, istintivo, con nuance di humour e leggerezza, Carlos Solito ci racconta uomini e donne che ne abitano le strade assolate. "Sciamenescià", l'incitamento dialettale in keeping with antonomasia che invita a mettersi in movimento, è l'incipit di un viaggio nella geografia di una Puglia inedita, lontana dai luoghi affollati dal turismo che, da anni, ha messo radici negli scorci da cartolina della regione. Il ritratto di scenari, persone e situazioni di una realtà che sa eternamente di controra, di limbo, di pace lento, dove tutto ha il gusto dolce del dormiveglia.
