The cheesecake is prepared during the Easter period typically in the regions of central Italy.

The original recipe has been published on my blog in Italian Il Mondo dei Dolci as a result of my several years of residence in that European country.

I have published more than 5,000 recipes in it so if you dare to translate them and modify some of the ingredients, related to each country, you can do it freely.

Entering a tropical forest with more than 200 plant and animal species in the Old Port of Genoa is a unique experience.

The Biosphere.

The Biosphere is the scenic structure created near the Genoa Aquarium, where you can learn, enjoy and defend the beauty of tropical forests.

This spectacular spherical glass and steel structure was designed in 2001 by the Genoese architect Renzo Piano and, thanks to a computerized air conditioning system, houses more than 200 species of plants and animals.

In homage to its author, the Genoese know it as the Bolla di Renzo Piano (The Sphere of Renzo Piano)


In the foreground the Biosphere, behind the Genoa Aquarium, inaugurated in 1992 to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America and in the background the Genoese historic center.

These natural systems, among the richest in terms of biodiversity, see their borders shrink rapidly due to the rapid development of human activities.

Biosphere: microclimate and great emotions.

A small botanical garden in the water, the Biosphere is a complex and exciting microclimate, where, under the guidance of expert personnel, you can closely observe many species: turtles, fish, insects, reptiles and many birds such as the scarlet ibis, the diamond tangerine or the rare weaver bird.

It is a sphere of 20 meters in diameter, a total weight of 6o tons and an area for the exhibition that reaches 200 m2.

It was officially opened on January 16, 2002 and its total cost was 4 billion Italian liras (the euro had not yet been established as a mandatory currency).


Scarlet Ibis or Red Corocoro, lord of the Biosphere. It is, without a doubt, for the intense color of its plumage and its graceful walk, one of the most visited species in the entire Biosphere.

The body is bright red in both sexes, with a long neck and a long, curved probe beak.

Its natural habitat is the coasts and swamps of northern Venezuela and the eastern plains of Colombia to southern Brazil.

Among the other varieties of names with which it is known we have red corocoro, corocora, red heron, cider or guará.

The Scarlet Ibis also called Red Corocoro is the most visited species in the entire Biosphere.


The Vietnamese leaf turtle.

The Vietnamese leaf turtle is one of the turtle species classified as threatened by the IUCN Red List.

The Vietnamese leaf turtle is distributed in the southeastern provinces of China (Guangdong, Guangxi, Hunan, Jiangxi), on the island of Hainan and in northern Vietnam.

On the other hand, the records of its existence in Cambodia and Laos are quite doubtful.

The habitat is represented by mountainous, humid, stream-rich primary forests. It is a predominantly terrestrial species, although it does not disdain water.

The leaf turtle, also known as the Vietnamese leaf turtle, is an endemic species of Southeast Asia and takes its name from the ease it has to blend in, hidden among the leaf litter and always near streams.

Genetically pure specimens of the Malaysian or red banana still exist, but in the wild.

Banana grows naturally in the Southeast Asia region, from India to the Malacca Peninsula, in Ceylon, the Philippines, and parts of Oceania, including Australia and Samoa.

It was introduced to Africa around the 4th century BC. C., from where it would arrive to the Caribbean and America carried by the colonists.

It is cultivated in New Guinea, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Ecuador, Cuba, Mexico, etc.


The banana, in the Biosphere, is another of the species that move the curiosity of the visitors.

By walking between ferns and palm trees, we can learn to recognize plants used by man, such as chewing gum, coffee, vanilla, and many exotic fruit trees.

Inside the Biosphere we can admire a complete tropical ecosystem.

Day gecko from Madagascar.

These geckos of diurnal customs inhabit jungle areas of northern Madagascar and some islands in the Indian Ocean.

They present a lively green color throughout their body with small specks of intense red color whose number and arrangement varies from one specimen to another.

These geckos are very active and nervous, so it is recommended not to manipulate them more than necessary, since a high level of stress can lead them to drop their tails as a defensive measure, and although they will regenerate over time, the process involves a lot of energy expenditure. for your body.


The Madagascar day gecko is an endemic species on the eponymous island.

Nature is the art of which we are a part. It is the slogan of the Art in Nature movement.

An artistic movement that emerged in the 60s and 70s also called Land Art, Earth art or Earthwork.

It is a current of contemporary art in which the landscape and the work of art are closely linked since material from nature such as wood, stones, sand, water, etc. is used to generate the content of the work.

The movement originated in the late 1960s in the American West when some artists used desert landscapes to create their works.

The artist of Arte in Natura uses the earth, the environment, as his raw material for his works.

His main technique is intervention in the landscape, where his works now interact with the environment more directly, modifying a fraction of the landscape.


Starting from Borgo Valsugana, we drive up the Val di Sella road, following the signs for "Arte Sella" to the parking lot, located about 500 m after Hotel Legno.

The Art in Natura path begins on the other side of the road.

We cross the wood on the north side of the small valley and after a few steps we find the first works of art among the trees, inserted in the beautiful natural landscape.

The path leaves the forest and reaches a picnic area with benches and wooden tables.

From here we follow the paved road that continues slightly uphill into the valley until we reach Malga Costa. We arrived at the center of the Arte Sella park.

After paying for the tickets, we can get a closer look at the most impressive and interesting wooden works, including Giuliano Mauri's famous plant cathedral.

Temporary and damage to facilities.

In the spring of 2018 (April) I had the opportunity to visit Arte Sella, the annual festival that takes place every year in the forests of the Val di Sella in the province of Trento in northern Italy.

The best area to visit is the so-called Malga Area, which offers visitors the possibility of discovering the monumental works of the forest such as the Vegetal Cathedral, the Sella Art Theater and the Third Paradise, among others. There is also a concert hall.

A few months after my visit, specifically in the month of October, a violent storm destroyed many of the facilities in this beautiful forest.

For example, the Villa Strobel Garden, the part of the Sella Park destined for exhibitions and a large part of the trails and nature trails.

There are some spaces that are still being rebuilt.

Given the large number of works present in the Sella Park, I will divide the content into three posts.
