  • We visited the archaeological site on 2/6/017, place very interesting and full of history. If it weren't for the highly trained volunteers and lovers of these beauties we wouldn't have been able to visit the site. I contacted the volunteer guides a few days before our visit, have done their utmost to open the site in anticipation of a day your reservation, we were made to visit the Church of San Pietro Mandurino that wasn't planned. Therefore nothing to say who goes four for their land!!! Rather it is unfortunate to see that if it wasn't for them, the site would be completely abandoned, perhaps it should be noted that institutions investing in tourism, natural beauty and not only, taking care of what we have been left by those who have made history, you could create jobs without resorting to the usual complaints. Wiwa volunteers, hold tight! |!

  • Enticed by the description found on some tourist guides, I decide to visit the Archaeological Park of the Messapian walls of Manduria. As usual, though, I check, dedicated websites, timetables and info about the opening and usability. First alarm bell: the websites you visit are not updated. The first seems to have upgraded to 2007/2010, the second door, under "News", an event date of September 2016 (sich!). I can't believe it. I can't believe that an archaeological site of that importance is not open today, Thursday 13 July 2017. And I go there. I do these 50 kilometers and arrived in Manduria, I begin to follow the signs "Archaeological Park" and "Plinian" Source. Second alarm bell: the road runs along what should be the Park (sich!) of archaeology, but you only see grass, high grass and yellow. After finding a descriptive Panel half wrecked in the area source Plinian, I realize I'm on the right spot but-obviously-there is nothing available, open to the public. Nothing, everything was bleak and shameful neglect. Shame on who should manage, shame on who should oversee the management: If these, then, were to be coincidental, DOUBLE SHAME. Not even a sign of (however unjustifiable) excuses for those canned kilometers to find anything. In the end I'm ashamed too, from Italian, to see such infamous neglect of cultural heritage. Faced with this bleak show the question is MIBACT, where are you?
