The aim of nutrigenetics is to generate nutritional recommendations according to a person's gene pool, i.e. to establish a relationship between nutrition and health that previously, for example, traditional diets did not take into account, considering only individual aspects such as age, sex, height, physical exercise and some biochemical variables.

On the basis of these parameters, which were sufficient but incomplete, general dietary guidelines were offered for large population groups, without considering in detail the genetic specificity of the individual.

The nutrigenetic test is a precision tool of fundamental importance.

Today, advances in the field of nutrigenetics, and especially at 24Genetics, help us to establish what diet we should follow not only to improve our diet (also called DNA diet test)  but also to prevent a series of diseases identified from the analysis of our DNA and which can be avoided or modulated by means of specific dietary guidelines.

That said, we can affirm that the nutrigenetic test is a precision tool of fundamental importance when it comes to personalising our diet or preventing future illnesses.

This simple test will allow us to know which foods we should add or reduce to cover our nutrient needs and to prevent diseases that can be addressed through nutrition.

The evolution of the concept of nutrition.


Nutrition is to be understood as the intake of food in relation to the body's dietary needs.

The concept of satisfying hunger to achieve an optimal state of health is an outdated concept, which has led to the development of various currents among nutrition experts that, although different in their way of thinking, almost always converge on a common premise: the importance of eating unprocessed food, avoiding additives and always trying to enhance the contribution of fruit and vegetables as fundamental elements of nutrition.

And here they come into play because recommendations aimed at providing general guidance for the entire population, or for a certain group of people, do not take into account a factor that makes us unique: our DNA and the specific needs that may arise from the genetic information we present.

Fortunately, the nutrigenetic test is a tool that allows us to know a little more about ourselves and to adapt the general recommendations to our particular case. Thanks to them, it is possible to take our DNA into account when defining the most suitable diet for each person.

Genetic differences between individuals can condition nutritional needs and even predispose to different pathologies of multifactorial origin, i.e. they are influenced by genetics and the environment.

Nutritional genomics tries to study and provide information about this interesting interaction between genetics and nutrition.

How can DNA influence nutrition?

DNA is a molecule of life and therefore contains all the information necessary to maintain and preserve life, including nutrition and to fight disease in the first place.

Each individual has small particularities in his or her DNA that make us unique and, in the same way, define our needs, strengths and weaknesses.

For this reason, genetics is increasingly involved in the care of healthy people in order to maintain health and prevent disease.

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.

Tour.

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.

The Alta Murgia welcomes a fauna among the most interesting of Puglia and Italy, with widely distributed species tied to steppe environments and a few species distribution point linked to other environments.
Among the birds that populates the Murgia there are some of the most important populations of species of steppe and semiarid areas of the Mediterranean basin: lark ( Calandrella brachydactyla ) and the calender ( Melanocorypha calender ) that have particular relevance for the purposes conservazionistici being the most numerous populations Italian peninsula, woodlark ( Lullula arborea ), skylark ( Alauda arvensis ), crested lark (Cristata Gallery ), stone curlew ( Burhinus oedicnemus ). The Murgia welcomes several species of birds of prey including one of the largest populations in the world of lesser kestrel ( Falco naumanni ), a priority species for which the steppe is the trophic habitats and nesting in the historical centers of the neighboring countries where it determines a match unique among ancient architecture and nature. Other species of birds of prey of great importance in the area are the red kite ( Milvus milvus ), the short-toed ( Circaetus gallicus ), the Montagu's harrier ( Circus pygargus ), the marsh harrier ( Circus aeroginosus ), buzzards (Buteo buteo), The kestrel ( Falco tinninculus ), and the Lanner falcon ( Falco biarmicus feldeggii ) for which southern Italy is the western limit expansion.
Among the owls are the barn owl ( Tyto alba ), the long-eared owl ( Asio otus ) and the owl ( Athene noctua ).
The Murgia is also the habitat of amphibians such as the Italian newt ( Triturus italicus ), endemism of central and southern Italy, and the yellow-bellied toad ( Bombina pachypus ) and reptiles such as geckos of kotschyi ( cyrtopodion kotschyi ) , the green lizard ( Lacerta bilineata ), the cervone (Elaphe quatuorlineata ), the leopard snake ( Elaphe situla ), the viper ( Vipera aspis ) and the Hermann tortoise ( Testudo hermanni ).
Among the mammals to be counted the fox ( Vulpes vulpes ), the weasel ( Mustela nivalis ), marten ( Martes weasel ), the badger ( Meles meles ) sporadically is also the wolf ( Canis lupus ).
Of great importance is the small mammal population as the main source trophic for many birds of prey, including the shrew ( Suncus etruscus ), Savi's vole ( Pitymis lizards ), the wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus ) and the numerous species of bats of which he cites the greater horseshoe ( greater horseshoe bat ), the lesser horseshoe ( Rhinolophus hipposideros ), the Mediterranean horseshoe ( Rhinolophus euryale ), the Miniottero ( Miniopterus schreibersi ), the greater vespertilio ( Myotis myotis ), the vespertilio Blyth ( Myotis blythii ).

A traditional Italian menu consists of different phases, it is conceivable that the Pizza in most cases, in Italy, is considered a single dish (single recipe). The typical menu consists of at least four courses: antipasto, primo recipe, secondo and dolce recipe, ie, appetizers, starter, main and dessert.

The antipasto is usually made by small fleshy delicacies is ivas penis and other miniatures. Cousin usually a plate or pasta based or rice. The second is meat or fish and is usually served with some accompaniment, since in these dishes there is only meat or fish and, at most, a little trim.

To accompany braised vegetables offered and also in northern polenta. The last place is the dessert, which might consist of only a small cheese board or a piece of fruit or try a regional specialty. If desired the end as some digestive concoctions are highly effective. It is usually drunk on grappa in the northern regions, south herbal liqueur is most characteristic. Also express can round out the meal.

The Vatican Necropolis lies under the Vatican City, at depths varying between 5–12 meters below Saint Peter's Basilica.

The Vatican sponsored archeological excavations under Saint Peter's in the years 1940–1949 which revealed parts of a necropolis dating to Imperial times.

The work was undertaken at the request of Pope Pius XI who wished to be buried as close as possible to Peter the Apostle.

It is also home to the Tomb of the Julii, which has been dated to the third or fourth century.

The necropolis was not originally one of the underground Catacombs of Rome, but an open air cemetery with tombs and mausolea.

ke an arrow that creeps off of the seas, the simplest geometry to draw more 'long the coast here in Puglia.

But what happens in the middle ground and 'a miracle that you will discover with patience, time consuming, sometimes with difficulty.

Between Bari and Brindisi for example, with those signs on the highway that will seem bizarre invitations to derogate from the rocks and sand to get lost in the history and geography, in time and space.

Soon will be streets where the asphalt clears, guard rails are filled with stones piled to dry by drawing curves, slopes, trees and silence.
