Cerealia comes to Hvar island – 1&2 Sept 2015 – Stari Grad

We are honoured to announce the first in a series of reciprocal visits in cooperation with Italian organizations. This year’s visit to Rome, as part of a tour “Presentation of the island of Hvar, Hvar culture and wine” organized by the Croatian Embassy in Rome, has resulted in cooperation with Festival Cerealia. Cerealia is a festival dedicated to cereal grains such as wheat and barley, and the idea comes from ancient Rome. http://www.cerealialudi.org/

 

CEREALIALaFestadeiCereali.CerereeilMediterraneo

This event promotes the cereals of the Mediterranean basin, and each year includes one partner country, to encourage cultural exchange. This year it is Croatia, in previous years Cyprus, Greece …

Cultural pluralism has been a permanent feature of the Mediterranean since ancient times. The social and economic value of grain is enormous. Cerealia want to spread the knowledge and awareness of the value of the soil and indigenous cultures, to renew ties between the producers and the consumers’ tables, even to revive old customs and traditions, that are based on respect for the earth and its fruits.

Cerealia will continue their cooperation with Croatia this year by visiting the island of Hvar. In Stari Grad on trg Škor, 01.09.2015 (Tuesday) there will be a number of different cultural entertainment events.

At 8 pm we will have a performance by dance theatre M.Th.I. http://www.mthi.it/ called Four Elements, with Paola Sarcina (artistic director of the Festival Ceralia), Diana Forlani and Stefania Toscano. The event continues with an exhibition of the art of bread prepared by the legendary Roman bakery “Panella, l’arte del pane“, where visitors will be able to see bread made in the shape of famous Roman monuments such as the “La Bocca della Verità”.

Afterwards, there will be Tasting of Hvar wines, accompanied by a musical performance by Rade Šolaja.

On the second day, 02.09.2015 (WEDNESDAY), the exhibition of bread will move to the Agency for the Management of the Stari Grad Plain, where it will be on show until 17.09.2015, along with an exhibition of photographs of Roman villas of the Stari Grad Plain. The opening of the two exhibitions will be marked by a presentation by archaeologist Mark Matković called “Wine and wine-growing on the island of Hvar in ancient times”. The Agency Director Francesco Duboković dipl.ing.agr. and our guest Paola Sarcina, artistic director of the Festival Ceralia will tell us more about the two exhibitions.

Hvar is undoubtedly the Island of Wines, for more than 24 centuries, as the president of the “Hvar winemakers” Ivana Krstulović Caric, dipl.ing will tell us.

At this event, get to know the period of Roman rule and their customs related to bread and wine!

Welcome! Dobrodošli!

10.07.2015. IVAN DOLAC – HVAR WINE TASTINGS

 

IVAN DOLAC

DSC_0431 (537x800)

Merchants were coming by their ships and they were collecting the wine from the Beach to the Beach. The islanders call all the villages of the south side “the Beaches”, and so every village  has their own, Pitve village  has Zavala (Beach), Svirče- Ivan Dolac (Beach), sometime ago even Sv. Nedija, which long ago was distinguished as a parish and became an independent village from Svirče.

Eventually Ivan Dolac became  the place where the islanders stayed over the summer with their families, and today is a favorite place of tourists who love beautiful beaches, clear waters and excellent wines of Hvar. Surrounded by steep vineyards, rosemary and olive trees, Ivan Dolac is widely known today as the famous vineyard appellation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A glorious past and a big disaster is testified by votive church in the old part of the village, which tells the story of the arrival of the great plague – the three evils who devastated Hvar, but also the Dalmatian vineyards and caused a great hunger and emigration of our ancestors.

Come and enjoy in the blue sea, fascinating vineyards and Hvar wines!
