HAPPY HOUR 7PM-8PM I RESTAURANT 7PM-11PM Terrazza Vittoria ADV 2 TIPS ON NAPLES _ OCTOBER 2019 Benvenuti!
Non male scegliere la nostra regione per entrare in modo soft nella stagione autunnale, senza troppe malinconie estive. La temperatura è ancora mite e i più fortunati e audaci potranno godere finanche di qualche bagno fuori stagione. Ottobre è però perfetto per lunghe camminate all’aria aperta. In questo numero vi portiamo alla scoperta del Parco Nazionale del Vesuvio, vulcano famoso in tutto il mondo per storia e natura, che abbraccia un territorio vastissimo e molto diversificato. Scegliete pure il vostro sentiero, ma imperdibile sarà il sentiero del Gran Cono: come dimenticare l’esperienza di camminare lungo il cratere di un vulcano attivo? Lo Sterminator Vesevo che ispirò il sommo Leopardi nella lirica-testamento La Ginestra, scritta dal poeta proprio a Torre del Greco.
Buona passeggiata e godetevi tutto il buono e bello della nostra Campania! Usually, when you arrive in Naples, you’ll feel that gravity won’t quite keep you on the ground anymore, you will feel weightless and with no direction. You will walk with no destination, speak with no logic, you will fall silent without a reason why Di solito, giunti a Napoli, la terra perde per voi buona parte della sua forza di gravità, non avete più peso né direzione. Si cammina senza scopo, si parla senza ragione, si tace senza motivo (ANNA MARIA ORTESE) Moodon
TRAVELLING IN CAMPANIA _ 5 4 TIPS ON NAPLES _ OCTOBER 2019 The Vesuvius National Park is a unique institution among all protected areas. It is one of the main touristic attractions in Campania. Which are the next planned moves in terms of prevention, preservation and promotion? “The framework legislation on protected areas is strongly focused on the role played by Park Institutions as subjects that must combine the preservation of biodiversity with the development of local communities. I think our Park might be the prime example of this ambitious law.
Il Parco del Vesuvio rappresenta una realtà unica tra le aree naturali protette.
È uno dei principali attrattori turistici della Campania. Quali sono le azioni in programma in termini di prevenzione, tutela e valorizzazione? “La legge quadro sulle aree protette pone fortemente l’accento sul ruolo degli Enti Parco come soggetti istituzionali che devono coniugare la conservazione della biodiversità con lo sviluppo delle comunità locali. Credo che il nostro Parco sia il più emblematico laboratorio di questa ambiziosa prescrizione normativa.
Ovviamente la straordinaria bellezza del nostro territorio, l’inestimabile biodiversità degli habitat, la grandissima fertilità della terra e la varietà del paesaggio ci sono state donate dal nostro amato Vesuvio, che con la sua millenaria attività vulcanica ha rigenerato di volta in volta la terra e la vita su di essa in un processo di costante distruzione creatrice. Dopo i gravi incendi dell’estate del 2017, come Ente Parco abbiamo approvato un piano straordinario denominato “Grande Progetto Vesuvio”. Si fonda su tre assi fondamentali di intervento: 1. la riqualificazione di tutta la rete sentieristica; 2.
la rinaturalizzazione delle aree colpite da incendio; 3. miglioramento dell’accessibilità e della fruizione del Gran Cono del Vesuvio.
Sull’asse 1 e 3 abbiamo già alcuni cantieri in corso. Sono partite le riqualificazioni del sentiero n.7, “il vallone della Profica”, nel territorio di San Giuseppe Vesuviano, e della Strada Matrone (porta di accesso al Gran Cono dal versante boschese). Sul tema rinaturalizzazione (asse 2) abbiamo ottenuto un finanziamento da parte del Ministero dell’Ambiente, con il quale prevediamo di intervenire tra qualche mese alla reintroduzione di specie arboree autoctone sui primi 30 ettari colpiti dal fuoco”. Our protected area is one of the most complex yet fascinating of our country. Dimension - wise it is one of the smallest (about 8.400 hectares) but it has a very high housing density.
This is what makes the search for the environmental safeguard so hard and challenging La nostra area protetta è una delle più complesse ed affascinanti del nostro paese. Per estensione è una delle più piccole (circa 8.400 ettari) ma ha una altissima densità abitativa. Ciò rende la sfida per la tutela ambientale difficile e avvincente A protected natural area that stretches out around Mount Vesuvius, one of the most studied volcanoes in the world Agostino Casillo PRESIDENT OF THE VESUVIUS NATIONAL PARK VESUVIUS NATIONAL PARK Of course, the extraordinary beauty of our territory, the invaluable biodiversity of the habitats, the great fertility of our land and the diversity of our landscapes have been given to us by our beloved Vesuvius, which has, through its thousandyear old volcanic activity, restored each time the land and the life on it in a continuous process of creative destruction.
After the dangerous fires in the summer of 2017, together as a Park Institution we have approved an extraordinary plan named “Great Vesuvius Project”. It is based on three main strategic axis: 1. to redevelop the whole pathway; 2. to re-naturalize the areas damaged by the fires; 3. to improve the accessibility and fruition of the Large Vesuvius Cone. Axis 1 and 3 are already in the works. Processes “Our goal is to promote more and more an aware and sustainable form of tourism. The upgrading of the pathway service and its implementation through bicycle lanes and bridle paths are intended to serve this purpose.
Moreover, we are trying to reduce short vacations and to promote, instead, longer visits. This is why we have created the Vesuvius Herculaneum Card which allows all tourists, through a single ticket and at a discounted price, to access all the most relevant touristic sites in the Herculaneum area (the Herculaneum Ruins, the MAV Museum, the Vesuvian Villas and, of course, the Large Cone of Mount Vesuvius)”.
of redevelopment have started for the path n.7 “the Profica valley”, in the San Giuseppe Vesuviano area, and the Matrone road (main access to the Large Cone from the Bosco side). Speaking of re-naturalization (axis number 2) we have obtained a public funding from the Ministry of Environment, and we expect the works to start in the next few months to reintroduce local arboreal species on the first 30 hectares damaged by the fire”. The Vesuvius National Park is plastic free AN EVER-GROWING TOURISTIC TREND “Summer confirms the Vesuvius’ Crater as the second most visited touristic attraction in Campania.
Our goal is to end the year 2019 with 700 thousands visits, after the 650 thousands we had in 2018. Our challenge is to see a growth on the many other stunning sites we have besides the Crater”.
L’estate conferma il Cratere del Vesuvio secondo sito di attrazione turistica della Campania. Puntiamo a chiudere il 2019 a quota 700 mila presenze, dopo le 650mila del 2018. Ora la sfida è far crescere anche i tanti altri stupendi siti oltre al Cratere”. Key-word: sustainability “Il nostro obiettivo è di incentivare sempre più un turismo consapevole e sostenibile. In questa direzione vanno la riqualificazione della rete sentieristica e l’implementazione con ciclovie ed ippovie. Inoltre, stiamo cercando di ridurre il turismo mordi e fuggi ed incentivare, invece, la permanenza di più giorni sul territorio.
Abbiamo creato per questo la Vesuvio Ercolano Card con la quale i turisti possono accedere, con un unico biglietto a prezzo scontato, ai più importati siti turistici del versante Ercolanese (Scavi, MAV, Ville Vesuviane e ovviamente Gran Cono del Vesuvio)”.
