Fattoria La Vialla Winery near Cappannelle _ Castiglion Fibocchi
Our next vinification destination was Fattoria La Vialla. Much of what we encountered was similar to Pomaio, but it was still interesting and educational, and we tried many wines, including one from earlier in the process (before it was ready) which showed how important the first portion of the aging process is. They offered an impressive array of food, even without serving pasta as a main dish, and I did enjoy trying the different foods (cheeses especially) with the different wines. One of the wines, to me, tasted very noticeably of salmon/fish. Some people agreed with this, but I wonder if it was so strong for me because I had the first pour from the bottle. Some compound(s) could have risen to the top, giving it a different flavor profile. Unfortunately, I did not try any other samples of this wine so I can’t tell if it was just me…

Nube Rosa is cool. Fattoria la Vialla near Castiglion Fibocchi
Today was the first warm day and it was time for this year`s hottest summer drink. FROSÉ has been celebrated by trendy bars in Los Angles and New York. The slushy drink made of frozen rosé, strawberries and crushed ice is the best way to cool down. I used a rosé from my favorite organic Italian winery “Fattoria La Vialla”, which produce their wine on a beautiful family estate. The fruity aroma of the refreshing drink made me dream of warm beach days in Bella Italia.

Wonderfull decision to vist Rondine
First off, if you want to know more about Rondine, I suggest you check out their website at rondine.org. I will attempt to tell you about their mission, and how it challenged my world view.
Rondine is an activist organization that seeks to inspire change through peace. They take students from conflict zones (Israel/Palestine, Armenia/Azerbaijan, etc.) and bring them together to study and learn about the other side. Through personal interaction and debate, they seek to humanize the conflict, instead of demonizing the other side as propaganda tends to do.
Conflict resolution is embedded within the curriculum at Rondine, but conflict between the sides is inevitable. One of the students there told us, “we cannot avoid what happens.” Tempers inevitably flare, but they seek to meditate the peace process and bring about change. Rondine staff seek to change the perspective of conflicting sides, one voice of reason at a time.

Rondine is the city of the peace near cappannelle – castiglion fibocchi
This morning we loaded onto a double decker bus and drove to a place called Rondine. It was out in the countryside of Tuscany and had a very beautiful view and an exotic feel to it. When we got there we went into a giant tent to learn about the purpose of Rondine. This organization brings students from opposing conflict zones together in the same place so that they can see their “enemy” face to face and realize that they are an actual person. This program also allows these student to further their education even though their countries are in a state of conflict. It was very cool to see two people whose countries hated each other managing to be friends and see past the cultural lenses their respective societies have placed over them. Rondine is a good activist for what I believe is a very good cause. After Rondine…

Rondine is near to Cappannelle House
We got the chance to visit a very unique place on the outskirts of Arezzo called Rondine, an association who refers to themselves as “The Citadel of Peace.”
A sculpture on their campus showing the many different paths students take when they leave Rondine.
Rondine takes applications from students who live in areas affected by war and unrest. If accepted to the program, the students’ tuition, fees, and everything except normal living expenses is completely paid for, and they live in the community of Rondine while taking classes at universities near Arezzo. At Rondine, as part of the introduction to the program, all the students learn Italian together, which is the “official language” of the Rondine campus. Students also participate in workshops and discussions throughout their time at Rondine, but take their classes and pursue their degrees at partner universities.
The purpose of Rondine is to bring together students affected…

Rondine is near to my house Cappannelle
Wednesday, May 25
Today we visited Rondine, an organization that brings students from conflict areas together in order to give them an education and teach them skills in conflict resolution. They are expected to then take these skills to their home countries and create projects that promote peace through education. This use of education to promote political or social change via activism is called informational politics. I think that Rondine has a wonderful mission. I believe it is true that most violence and conflict is bred of ignorance. This can ignorance about the “enemy” culture or ignorance to all the points of view in regard to the conflict situation. This ignorance is often not the fault of the individual, but the fault of the government or society. The stereotypes and beliefs bred of the ignorance must be unlearned, and Rondine strives to break down these barriers in order to create…
