  • Italian style is a natural attitude. It is about a life of good taste. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Simple but with good taste. Luxury is possible to buy. Good taste is not.

  • Love and understand the Italians, for the people are more marvellous than the land.

General Information About Amalfi

Its string of fabled towns read like a Hollywood cast list. There's jet-set favourite Positano, a pastel-coloured cascade of chic boutiques, spritz-sipping pin-ups and sun-kissed sunbathers. Further east, ancient Amalfi lures with its Arabic-Norman cathedral, while mountaintop Ravello stirs hearts with its cultured villas and Wagnerian connection. To the west lies Amalfi Coast gateway Sorrento, a handsome clifftop resort that has miraculously survived the onslaught of package tourism.
Turquoise seas and cinematic piazzas aside, the region is home to some of Italy's finest hotels and restaurants. It's also one of the country's top spots for hiking, with well-marked trails providing the chance to escape the star-struck coastal crowds.

History

Amalfi, Maritime Republic from 1st of September 839, was one of the most important centres of Mediterranean in the Middle Ages, representing the meeting point between East and West thanks to warehouses that was able to build in various seaports. These contacts made it so big to join around itself a territory, Amalfi dukedom, which swept from Vietri sul Mare as far as Capri isle, and it intervened to defend southern Italy and Papacy against saracenic attacks, excepting stipulating in a second moment diplomatic agreements with them to obtain trade facilities. With Maritime Republic decline the territory became feud of big families who carried on making both town and dukedom big from the architectonic point of view. At the end of the feudal period inhabitants decided to buy the whole dukedom and also in Amalfi rose the public University (the town hall).
