Pozzuoli: the myth in the land of volcanoes
The fields Flegre i have a unique territory: a volcanic system in full operation subject to bradyseism (slow subsidence and elevations of the soil) and marine erosion. Within a few kilometers of coastline living myth and history, beauty and morphological: we find beautiful coves and headlands, depths to be explored rich in traces of the past, gastronomic routes to enjoy fresh fish and wines of ancient tradition. And then the sea, beaches, and live music in the typical local.

The whole area is protected by the big Regional Natural Park of Campi Flegrei.
A path in this part of Pozzuoli , a vibrant city with elegant restaurants but also cheaper restaurants always full of young people.

It is rich in monuments of the classical age, proof of the lively commerce of Puteoli is the impressive Macellum said TempleSerapis (The I-AD), named for the discovery of a statue of the Egyptian gods. But in reality, the structure was a Macellum, the market for edible. The shops were lined up on the sides of a colonnaded courtyard, while the hall with an apse at the bottom was bound to the imperial cult and the protectors of the market (including Serapis). The columns of this hall are good measures of the volcanic phenomenon flegreo, on them you see the small holes dug by molluschimarini when bradyseism brought her underwater and the Flavian Amphitheatre of Flavian is to size the

third in the world. Its functional architecture is an example of the excellent technical level reached in that time, has basement, staircases, corridors, devices for lifting cages fairs and even a device to represent naval battles.

The Regional Natural Park of Campi Flegrei:
The park covers an area of approximately 8,000 hectares and includes the Solfatara , sites archaeologists in Pozzuoli , Cuma and Baia, the nature reserves of the Crater of Astroni and the Monte Nuovo , and the lakes Averno , Lucrino and Fusaro , all of volcanic origin. A Park extraordinary, enormous scenic value, environmental and archaeological. Broad and diversified its offer of hotels in the area: hotels, guesthouses, campsites, cottages, bed & breakfast, but also restaurants and taverns where you can enjoy excellent seafood and the region.
The Crater of Astroni Nature Reserve , hunting in real Aragonese and then the Bourbon, It is an oasis protected by WWF, located inside one of the craters flegrei.
The reserve offers nature trails, educational facilities and a recovery center for wild animals. Two proposed routes the first, about 5 hours, has a medium difficulty and allows you to see the whole of the crater and surrounding areas; the second (6 hours), which develops within, has a minimal difficulty and allows the observation of flora and fauna, forest and marsh.
The area, area favorable for nesting birds (migratory species), it is a corner of paradise for fans of birdwalching. The Solfatara is the most active volcanic complex of Campi Flegrei , with fumaroles that emit sulfurous gases, sources of carbon dioxide and mineral-rich waters, jets of hot mud that alternate with woods and Mediterranean vegetation that contrast nicely with the arid landscape.
The crater, which dates back to about 4,000 years ago, was called by the Romans Forum Volcanoes ("home of the volcano god") Among the major attractions, the Fangaia, where yellowish mud gurgle continuously; the Bocca Grande, one of the main fumarole and seismic control and measurement of temperature and chemical composition of the gaseous emissions; the Well of the mineral; and the old stoves, real natural saunas.


"A boat trip to Pozzuoli, the small carriage rides, merry jaunts through the most marvelous region of the world." WolIgang Johann Goethe. 1181

Rione Terra
"There's a neighborhood where chapters in the long history of Pozzuoli overlapped in a unique way, a bit like the pages of a book and the Rione Terra"
This is the expression used by Alberto Angela in an episode of the Discovery Channel in 2011 to describe the Rione Terra of Pozzuoli.
Until the 60 Rione Terra was still beating heart, as popular, the city and the passage of time they had already hidden the buildings from Roman times. On 2 March 1970 the fortress was evacuated after one of the frequent swarms bradisismici history of Pozzuoli. From that moment on the fortress it will be abandoned. This neglect will end in the early 90s when he finally decides to refurbish what has always been the beating heart of a city with a long history. Just during the first restoration work that history has resurfaced.

RTerra 1The Rione Terra has always been the heart of Pozzuoli. The name is derived from the medieval and seafaring indicate "ground" the village or the city, almost as opposed outright to the sea. That the heart of the ancient city was right here, on this tufa rock with its 33 meters above sea level it extends out over the gulf between Nisida and Baia, had already been told by ancient authors, especially from the greek geographer Strabo , who lived in ' age of Augustus, who in his "Geography" , after pointing out that Pozzuoli (or rather, as he said the Greek, "Potioloi") had been a port of call of the Cumans, says this first settlement, unfortunately for us anonymous, it was It was "established on a hill."

The archaeological evidence that they can document this first settlement are still a few things, despite the extension of the excavations carried out to date on the acropolis puteolana, and were substantially those already known in the '70s: a fragment of a wine jug subgeometrica Factory Cumana and the bend of a Ionian Cup from the mid-sixth century BC.

The explosion of modernity that with industrialization (yards Armstrong 1866) invested Pozzuoli, not without consequences remarkable paid in terms of the use and abuse of the land, relegated to the Rione Terra suburb. Trasferitesi downstream gradually its economic and administrative, next to the Bishopric the only remaining urban function was that of the District Court (1896), located at the entrance of the district of Porta Napoli. Marginalized by the phenomenon bradisismico recur in the early years of the last century, despite interventions such as special law for the restoration of Pozzuoli (1911), life on Earth Ward continued so in an ever more precarious, and the conditions of the neighborhood were already degradation when it fell before the burning of the Duomo (16 May 1964) and then the events of 1970 and the earthquake bradyseism dell'irpinia1980.

This site allows you to do a very special trip back through the centuries.

The March 2, 1970 for the effects of bradyseism, The ground rose a few centimeters every day and remain in those houses inhabited uninterruptedly for two thousand years had become too dangerous, so that day in 1970 was the last lived from Pozzuoli in the Rione Terra, before the forced eviction imposed by the Ministry of the Interior and the National Civil Protection, the residents were forced to evacuate turned this district a district ghost, was only the Bishop but all around there were only houses silenzione. The Rione Terra was not never forgotten by the people who were evacuated, many of them were fishermen and were moved far away from the sea suffering serious hardships due to their particular business,

January 19, 2013 was inaugurated a new square on the input side via tram with some buildings in the age-old fortress. The square, following a survey, was attribbuito the name "Rione Terra - 2 March 1970 " , despite the rainy day numerous people were present at the opening ceremony. The project for the urban void, created by the demolition of several buildings located in the northern side of the promontory of the Rione Terra, and the route of Via Cavour, is driven by the desire to recover the collective memory of the role and commercial emporium of Puteoli in Roman times .

After the ribbon cutting and the unveiling of the headstone that gave the square its name, it was screened a film with unpublished images of archeological and of the work being completed by the Consortium conducted Rione Terra.

From the early years of colonization Greek and Roman to modern times, according to the greek historian Strabo, the fortress was considered landing of Cuma and was here so that in all likelihood, in 529 BC the exiles landed on the island of Samos and Dicerachia founded, the government of the righteous. However, it was in Roman times that Pozzuoli and the fortress reached their heyday.Click to enlarge
Pozzuoli has been for centuries, before the creation of the city, the largest port city of Rome and consequently it availed. The then Puteoli was deducted a Roman colony in 194 BC and had its stronghold in his heart. With the birth of the first port of Ostia and the decay of the Roman Empire then, Pozzuoli quickly fell into decline, until the large city that extended to encompass the modern Bacoli, was reduced just to the small fortress of Rione Terra.

And by this time (400 AD) that this corner of the city begins to "stratify". Cultures that have succeeded have built their shops their homes on what were once the Roman walls.
The most striking example of this phenomenon is undoubtedly the Cathedral of the city of Pozzuoli, which was built right on the walls of the Temple Augustus. The Cathedral, built in the time of Spanish rule, includes the Temple of the Roman era, which in turn embraced a temple dating back to the Republican era 194 BC, which was already restored by Sulla in 78 BC

The discovery took place in the margins of the work carried out after the fire of the cathedral took place in May of 1964.


The excavations of the Rione Terra revealed considerable stretches of roads, both along the path of decumano median and in some point of the Via Duomo, is long the mainstay of Via San Procolo, and alongside of them are came to light, in excellent preservation, the fronts of ancient islets, stay long in use until the late Middle Ages and then switch to act as a foundation to the fronts of the buildings of the Baroque period. The first thing that strikes one who walks these streets is the difference with the Vesuvian cities, first of all their width of just a few meters, at least since the urban renewal of the Augustan age, compared to which even the hinges of Herculaneum appear very broad, which gives now the idea of ​​hunger for space that must have always characterized, from the beginning, the life of the city within the acropolis. The fires must have played an important role in the history of the neighborhood. Traces of fire, possibly resulting from the earthquake in Pompeii in 62 or one in Naples in 64 AD, or perhaps independent of these, they are noticed in some shops along the hinge via San Procolo. The materials discharged into the wells of some tabernae closed after cleaning the collapses belong, in fact, the same as earlier types in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD

After this stage "catastrophic" life, at least in the north-east of the city, it continued quiet at least until the middle of the third century, as they seem to testify ceramic materials constituting the furnishing of another of tabernae dug near the intersection between the hinge of Via San Procolo and decumano median, and found in another well closed at this time. So in this well the crisis of Italic productions, determined by production autonomy of the provinces, to which Augustus had also recognized the administrative autonomy, evidenced in the modest amount of late-Italic sealed with respect to the large presence of African red. Even most of the lamps is imported from North Africa, and some forms seem to Tunisian production.

Who lived in these neighborhoods? It is not easy to say. On the ground floor of these islets, behind the rhythmic sequences of brick pilasters not glimpsed inputs of patrician houses, but only stores and tabernae. Below often it develops another level, sometimes even two, of tanks and tunnels dug into the tufa, some also in this area date back to the founding of the colony, to store rainwater before the construction of the aqueduct.

The testimonies that have brought to light with the excavations to date conducted on the Acropolis, with regard to flooring and wall coverings, are still very limited. The cause is to be found not only remembered, persistent change of use that most of the complex has been dug in the imperial age, when many of tabernae and borrea were transformed into processing environments, but above all in the destruction, also remembered, of the upper floors to those places at street level, which occurred during the construction of the city sixteenth and seventeenth century.

The huge amount of plates and tiles of marble found in the waste materials of the modern age, in the layers of abandonment of imperial age and in a pit filled with scraps of marble, also bore witness to the widespread use of this type of flooring, Neronian-Flavian age until the third century AD, for which they were used marble from the East (pavonazzetto), Greece (Hymettus, ancient red, portasanta), but also from Africa (Numidian) and the Apuan Alps (bardiglio).

In most cases to show how the buildings of this district should be directed to a representative, it reminded the sculpture, whose abundant elements have been found dumped in fills late-Renaissance. Given this phenomenon, which never ceases to amaze in front of the absolute beauty of some of the sculptures found, in particular, under the Bishop, it is very poor instead reuse the Rione Terra, compared to the flashiness of the same phenomenon in other centers of Campania, such as Amalfi, Ravello, and Salerno, both decorative and architectural elements of the classical age which, although present in the cement foundations or incorporated in the work of the walls do not assume anything, except in very rare cases, a function also Decorative. The amazing variety of sculptures, probably produced by factories operating in the Campi Flegrei to the Roman client, both the private villas, is one of the great monuments public official, and working as the Pentelic Greek marbles, used for sculptures peplophoi are mostly replicas of excellent quality of prototypes of Greek masterpieces of the classical and portraits mostly of eminent persons of the imperial court; a typical combination of the decoration of large public buildings that seem to indicate, as stated above, the main destination of these complexes immediately outside the Capitoline temple. And almost a rebuttal of origin from public buildings must be reported the absence of those small decorative sculptures that made up the bulk of the decorations instead of private homes, as the examples of the Vesuvian cities.

Archaeological Park of Cuma
Here is the 'Cave of the Sybil , cave dug into the tuff the legendary id entifica with the place where the priestess of Apollo issued his oracles. ( Virgil, Aeneid, Book VI ).

A long corridor about 130 m. Wide 2.40 m. and about 5 m high. trapezoidal is illuminated by six opening side, leading into an environment in which the arcuate faces another innermost.

Almost sorry to discover that in reality it is a tunnel for military ...

Here the myth lingers even in the names of places.

In the area where arose Cuma , the first city of the Magna Grecia , develops a fantastic route where they meet the places sung by Virgil.

Among the most enchanting corners, the lake Averno . To the ancients was the entrance of Hades.

Hence Enea ventured to his descent into Hell. Even today, among the hills covered with vineyards, the dark body of water creates a mysterious atmosphere. On the other side stand the remains of a magnificent spa room known as the " Temple of Apollo ".

"You can not imagine anything more romantic small passage from Lake Averno entrance of the cave, especially for those who have the head full of legends ..."

Johann Gotlfried Seume. 1802

Among craters and fumaroles:
the Solfatara
In Pozzuoli there is a volcano altivo and can be visited: "square of Hephaestus' was the name that the greek geographer Strabo in the first century BC had given Solfatara, attributing the presence of the God of Fire (Hephaestus) the disturbing appearance fumarole, clouds of sulphurous steam and boiling mud in the large crater.

The Solfatara, you can see a crater of boiling lava, with its vapors and steaming mud. This active volcano can be visited and is one of the main attractions of Campi Flegre i. The feeling here is disturbing: the earth tormented by fire creates a surreal scenery of unimaginable colors.

Founded 4,000 years ago almost to the center of the Campi Flegrei, the Solfatara (from Late Latin Sulpha Earth , "the land of sulfur") is itself lively with geysers, springs and gas mineral water, jets of hot mud and seismic shocks. The biggest geyser is the Bocca Grande ,a natural source of water vapor pressure, splashing out at 160 degrees and contains several gases that give the characteristic smell of "rotten eggs", are these phenomena through which it manifests activity of Solfatara , which no It is fueled by magma. The last eruption was in fact the year 1198. In the first half of the nineteenth century the crater, real property, was used as a quarry to extract some chemicals used for military purposes. Many of these, sulfur and other minerals, can still be seen at the fumarole, in the form of coatings, crusts and crystals, generated by sublimation hydrothermal activity of the volcano. The surface of the crater is covered by the "white out", a clay-siliceous material from which sewage was extracted, in Roman times, alum.

"There is between Naples and Great Puteoli, a place place in the bottom of an abyss cable, washed by the waters of the Cocytus, because they come out impetuously vapors, spreading around with sweltering heat"

Petronio, the first century. c,

The Oasis of Monte Nuovo
Monte Nuovo , formed in 1538 after an eruption from which originated the crater hill that rises between Lucrino and Arco Felice , is the most recent volcano of Campi Flegrei.
Oasis panoramic, can be visited on foot. Going up to the top, the view from Posillipo to the Gulf of Pozzuoli; instead along the edge of the crater you can see the lakes of Averno and Lucrino and, in the distance, the islands of Procida and Ischia.
