This is Naples

0

Category:

Italy's third largest city thrives on the chaos that prevails amid its busy streets. This is the place where pizza was invented and its restaurants continue to serve some of Italy's finest cuisine.

Sheltering on the Bay of Naples and dominated by the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, Naples is naturally imbued with the best of nature's bounty. The city is somewhat schizophrenic in its juxtaposition of superb museums, Renaissance and Baroque churches alongside crumbling tenement blocks and squalor. Noisy markets sell a collection of items from high-quality food produce to fake designer goods. Roads are characteristically hectic with gung-ho moped drivers weaving wildly through the streets and frustrating traffic jams clogging the city's arteries. Despite its less refined elements, Naples is a fascinating destination and a great base from which to explore the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii and Herculaneum.

The city's transport hub is located around the immense Piazza Garibaldi, on the east side of Naples. The area's growing African population has imbued the streets with the flavours and favours of its immigrants. Southwest from here is the Piazza Bovio and branching to the left of it, the Piazza Municipio and nearby Piazza del Plebiscito. On the watery edges are the Molo Beverollo and the Stazione Marittima, the point of departure for ferries. From the reaches of Spaccanapoli one can explore the historic part of Naples with its numerous palaces and churches.

Naples Port Authority

The foundation of Naples and its port unquestionably dates back to the period of Greek colonisation; in the ninth century B.C. a group of sailors from Rhodes reached this part of the coast and, between the seventh and sixth centuries B.C., the Greek colony was founded on the Acropolis of Pizzofalcone.

In 475 B.C. the inhabitants of Cuma founded Neapolis (new city) in the eastern part of the original city. As a mainly military port in Greek and Roman times, the port of Naples gradually became more open to sea traffic and grew in importance.

It was under Norman rule that the port enjoyed a period of great splendour becoming the only one of the Italian marine republics to join the famous Lega della Compagnia, known as the “Hanseatic cities”. The period of Norman rule brought Naples and its port a period of successes in maritime affairs and sea traffic. However, it was with the Anjovins in the second half of the thirteenth century, and in particular during the reign of Charles I of Anjou, that the port expanded and it acquired new buildings, while the city became the most heavily populated and admired city in Europe. The fortification of the port and the construction of warehouses, storage depots and factories continued under Aragonese rule (fifteenth century) and under the Spanish viceroy.

It was not until the dynasty of the Bourbons (eighteenth century) that the port became established as one of the most well-equipped and strongest in Europe nd the city becam one of the great European capitals alongside Paris and London. Indeed, it was under the Bourbons that the arsenal became an enormous shipyard and the day of September 27 1818 saw the launch of the “Real Ferdiando I”, the first steamship of the Mediterranean.

After 1861, the port of Naples underwent a period of decline. Paradoxically the unification of Italy had a negative effect on the port with its traffic diminishing and its activities undergoing a significant reduction. Revival of its importance took place at the beginning of the twentieth century as a result of the efforts of Francesco Saverio Nitti and Admiral Augusto Witting.

The period of Fascism saw Naples become the main port for linking Italy to its colonial territories. New infrastructural works were built together with new buildings such as the Harbour station, designed in 1932 by the architect Bazzani. After the Second World War, the port of Naples became the setting for a terrible mass exodus of thousands of Italians who left Naples in search of their fortune in America.

Naples, Street Market

Greeks founded the city of Naples back in the 7th century BC. The ancient design of the city still exists today. Three long parallel streets cross the center of Naples, with many small, narrow and dark streets connecting them. As you’ll see on the following photos not much light gets here, come on let’s go --the city old district is at our back...

First we’ll visit the old district of Naples, where you’ll see the more typical sights of this city. This part of the city has a long history. The quarter has survived many blazes, air raids and earthquakes, and the best of all is that it has not lost its picturesque ambient. There are many fascinating (and some sinister) places here. The next we’ll visit a street market and then go to the old district...
