The castles of Andria and Trani

Visiting the castles of Andria and Trani was like plunging into the past and reliving history. 
Castel del Monte (Andria), dates back to the 13th century and is located on a 
mountain on the Murge plateau. Built by Emperor Frederick II, it was included in the 
UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. It has an octagonal plan and the interior space 
is divided into 2 floors. Limestone is the predominant material. The marble and the

The castles of Peschici and Manfredonia

September 18 and 19 the editorial staff of the online magazine "Fiori di 
carta" organized a guided tour to introduce us to the castles of Peschici and 
Manfredonia. We started from Campi Salentina and the journey was peaceful. Once 
we arrived at our destination we were placed in hotel rooms to dispose of the
journey’s fatigue, and then we went to visit Peschici which is a very beautiful tourist 
resort. The historic center winds through many alleys, which make it similar to a 

Castle Carlo V and its legend

During a rainy day of December the M. O. L. editorial staff “Fiori di carta” finds itself in front of the “Royal Door” to meet with Dr. Leo, the guide that will accompany us during our course. In 1539 emperor Carlo V D’Asburgo emanated the order to demolish the old princely bulwark, dating back to Middle Ages, to build a new fortress, with military architecture techniques. The job was entrusted to Gian Giacomo dell’Acaya, engineer of Napoli’s reign. The shape of the building is quadrangular and has four corners, from which the four ramparts rise.

A meeting between us and Dr. Spagnulo

On Tuesday 27/11/2018, we guys from Campi Sal.na and Lequile, part of the online magazine “Fiori di carta”, interviewed Dr. Stefano Spagnulo, author of the novel “Beautynsidia”, which protagonist is an irriverent and sometimes sarcastic little monkey that, with its personality, almost ends up overshadowing humans. In this new book are not treated only scientific themes, but also ethical themes like animal experimentation and cloning.

Summary of the interview to lawyer Vigilante

Violence proliferates where there is a very strong disparity between men and women. However there is the need to distinguish between various forms of violence: the psychological, the physical, the economic, the sexual, the domestic, the women’s trade, the stalking, and, since some years, the femicide one, that is when a woman gets killed as such. It’s fundamental to understand at the legal level what type of violence it is and what is the legislation to apply.

The nature for Stefano Spagnulo

Guys from "Fiori di carta" met Dr. Stefano Spagnulo at the naturalistic reserve of Rauccio park. On May 15, on a windy afternoon, we went into the woods to get to know the naturalistic beauties of this landscape. Here we set out  on a path where we could admire the oldest holm oak tree called "grandfather", which once the visit was over we all hugged by expressing a wish. Entering the woods, Dr. Spagnulo made us listen to the chirping of cinciallegre, who communicated with their song the presence of some intruders.
