A different view on history
As I mentioned ago in one on my articles, La Corte del Castello, in addition to being a stylish wine and cocktails bar, it is also the founder of the summer weekly nights called ''Tra La Storia e La Gente (Among The History and The People)". Every Tuesday, from the 1st July until the 2nd September, special guests are invited to talk about different topics of our land. Some of those are native from this tiny region, but they also became famous with persistence, patience and hard work. Bruno Pizzul, the Noninos, Elio Ciol and Nico Naldini are the special guests at this annual mini festival in San Vito.

What's interesting is the unusual location the organisation has chosen to run the events in. That is an example of the clever reuse of what could have simply been called ancient ruins and left to neglect. In effect, the first precinct of the medieval centre had been revealed a few year ago and then accurately restored. It would be a pity if this treasure was not used for purposes useful to the community.



Hence, the idea was: just consider the medieval dried moat; install a wooden platform, a couple of designer Mask chairs from Midj, a minimal lamp and the atmosphere is perfectly reached. Two to four seats are for the single event speakers plus the interviewer and mediator, as every conference rotates around two topics, for at least two hours per night.



To add a dash of cultural concept, they set a small boat made up with newspapers, by the artist Marco Tracanelli, who also exposed the same work of art at the Venice Biennale. One can interpret the paper-sculpture as a means for culture that still floats in the waters (as the stones they represent the old moat).



Therefore, it could be a picture representing the culture mission: to reach everyone like every water stream does.
