The Campania region
Campania is a region of southern Italy. Counts 5,812,962 residents (demo.istat.it 31/12/2008) that rank second in population (after California) and the first for the density. Its capital is Naples.
Bordered to the west, south-west by the Tyrrhenian Sea, north-west by Lazio, Molise to the north, north-east and east of Apulia Basilicata.
Ravello, located at the top of the Dragone Valley, really seems as though it is a town, and a garden, at the same time. Enclosing endless numbers of amazing views, and examples of traditional architecture, the beauty of Ravello has been charming travellers, and artists of all nationalities for centuries. Some famous artists who have visited Ravello are, Boccaccio, and Wagner, as well as many others.
Ravello was founded by the Roman aristocracy, and soon it became a very wealthy and powerful town between the X, and the XIII century. Ravello, like Amalfi, owed its prosperity to extensive commerce throughout the
Mediterranean, and to its strong textile industry (wool and cotton). The fall of Ravello's wealth and influence
came with Ruggero II, and the Normanni domination. This was furthered even more with the Pisani invasion in 1337, which deprived the entire Amalfi Coast of its independence, and political power.
The most famous architectures in Ravello are Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. These buildings perfectly represent the architectural style which is typical throughout the major centres found on the Amalfi Coast.
The town has served historically as a destination for artists, musicians, and writers, including Richard Wagner, M. C. Escher, Giovanni Boccaccio, Virginia Woolf, Gore Vidal,André Gide and Sara Teasdale who mentioned it in her prefatory dedication in Love Songs, one of her many books of poems.
Every year in the summer months, the "Ravello Festival" takes place. It began in 1953 in honour of Richard Wagner.
There is an ancient legend, still recounted by tour guides in Salerno and Amalfi, that it was to Ravello, with its breathtaking view of the Mediterranean and the dramatic Amalfi coastline, that Satan transported Jesus during His second temptation to show the beauty of the world's kingdoms.
