first_imgA great discovery in Rovinj! At the foot of the church of St. Euphemia, underground, the church of St. Michael the Archangel, reports from the Rovinj Tourist Board.Due to the works on paving the western plateau in front of the church of St. Euphemia opened, after more than 100 years, one of the 32 tombs built and laid to the ramparts that surround the church, and the opening of the tomb led to the church of St. Michael the Archangel.As they point out from the Rovinj Tourist Board, although it was known that at the foot of the church there is a buried church of St. Michael the Archangel, its rediscovery during archeological excavations was a real sensation, and according to the historian and deputy mayor of Rovinj Marina Budica’s church is in relatively good condition, so the valuable history of Rovinj can be read from the walls, vaults and arches.Photo: Rovinj Tourist BoardThe top of the island hill on which between III. and the 1673th century Rovinj, an area of ​​special historical and archaeological interest. Namely, the first parish church was built then, and around the church there was the first Rovinj cemetery which was used until the XVIII. century. In the Middle Ages, next to the church dedicated to St. George and St. Euphemia, three more churches were built: St. Michael the Archangel, St. Roka and St. Ursula. Later, in XNUMX, on the top of Grisia Street, next to the cathedral, the church of St. Joseph.Since the old parish church was in a very bad condition in 1720, the then City Council decided to renovate it to better suit the importance that Rovinj had in Venetian Istria at that time, which resulted in the demolition of the churches of Sts. Roka and St. Ursula as well as the churches of St. Michael the Archangel.Photo: Rovinj Tourist BoardThe project of the ground floor arrangement of St. Euphemia Square began in 2015, and includes two separate phases: first the rehabilitation of the western part of the cemetery, and then the southern part. Considering that below this last part there are numerous tombs, as well as the church of St. Michael the Archangel, a detailed archaeological research of this area is planned.The task of future archaeological research is a more detailed research and study of all historical aspects and architectural structures of this underground church, which is certainly unique at the regional level and which hides many more secrets that have yet to be revealed, valorized and brought closer to scientists and the general public.Related news: ROVINJ ON THE LIST OF TRIPADVISOR AS A RISING DESTINATIONlast_img read more

first_imgThey continued to go back and forth, Liverpool pulling out the third set 25-21, but B’ville taking the third set 25-22, so the season hung on a fifth-set race to 15 points.Only by the slightest 15-13 margin did the Warriors prevail and end the Bees’ season, with Quinn Moore leading the way as he got 29 assists, 16 digs, two kills, two aces and two blocks.Anthony Pezzino finished with 12 kills and 12 digs, while Elliott DeForge had eight kills and two blocks. Defensively, Jagger Alberici picked up 27 digs as Jackson Furr had 10 digs and Nolan Feldt earned eight digs, plus a pair of aces. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story The only problem was that the Warriors had less than 48 hours to recuperate before the sectional final against a C-NS side against which it had not claimed a set in two previous regular-season encounters.And it wouldn’t do so here, either.It wasn’t for a lack of effort, for the Warriors fought hard in each of the first two sets, only to have the Northstars get away and claim them by 25-17 and 25-16 margins.The third set also went 25-16 in C-NS’s favor as it won its 21st onsecutive match, earning a trip back to the state tournament, where it will play a regional final against the Section I-II champion Saturday night at Fayetteville-Manlius.Kevin Felasco put away 16 kills, helped on the front line by Dan Seliger, who had 12 kills. Libero Trace LaRobardiere finished with 10 digs as he worked well again with setter Brandon Millias.Before this, C-NS first had to turn back no. 4 seed Fayetteville-Manlius in last Wednesday’s semifinals. And the second set was stressful, but the Northstars claimed it 25-22 in between 25-14 romps in the first and third sets for yet another sweep.Seliger put away 17 kills, while Felasco had eight kills, John Hendry six kills and Grant Sennett and Carter Wisely five kills apiece. Feeding all of them, Millias earned 35 assists as LaRobardiere finished with 11 digs.Over in girls volleyball, C-NS held the no. 2 seed, but a home-court advantage did not mean much as no. 3 seed F-M eliminated the Northstars in four sets in last Wednesday’s sectional Class AA semifinal.After dropping the first set 25-13, C-NS did play a strong second set and won it 25-19. Yet the Hornets regained control with a 25-16 decision in the third and just kept the Northstars from pushing the match to the wire by taking the fourth 25-23.Brooke Segars still had 12 kills and 17 digs, with Aurora Lesinski adding nine kills. Adriana Houston had five kills and Emma Koening four kills as Jennifer Carl got 24 assists and four aces. Cassidy Ormond earned 10 assists, with Hannah Mingle adding 15 digs.For F-M, Morgan Napier, earning 40 assists, passed to a well-balanced front line. Kendra Broddus earned 12 kills, with Harper Stoppacher adding 11 kills. Juliana Myagkota and Mackenzie Helmer had eight kills apiece.So the C-NS girls had its season end –but the boys Northstars, intent on getting the program’s first-ever state championship, must win a regional match Saturday at 7 p.m. at F-M’s gym against whoever wins the Section I-Section II match the night before. Perfection has marked the run of the Cicero-North Syracuse boys volleyball team in 2019, which makes it special beyond the latest Section III Division I championship it has put on its ledger.The Northstars defeated Liverpool in last Saturday’s sectional title match at Jamesville-DeWitt, though the match proved a bit anticlimactic in the wake of an epochal semifinal at C-NS two nights earlier where the Warriors fought off no. 3 seed Baldwinsville.Every run by one side was met by another throughout the semifinal, starting in the first set, where Liverpool did just enough to edge the Bees 25-23. Then, in the longest set for either team this fall, both sides squandered multiple set points before B’ville took it 32-30. Tags: C-NSliverpoolvolleyballlast_img read more
