My life in a long safar, a journey and a soundtrack, the sound of a string of the oud my father gave me, and my grandfather gave to my father and so on, endlessy backward, as endless is the desert I see from the wondows of my house. This desert has no obstacle for me. I’m leaving, father, and if God helps me, I’ll cross the sea…I have no fear…and this is enough. My son, a good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving, God bless you!
Spaccanapoli Virtual Tour Naples: Our beautiful city of Naples is so rich in history that Stendhal thought it was the only place (together with Paris) that might claim to be the “capital” of Europe. Between myth and reality, Naples is now 3,000 years old, going back to the days and events of the numerous peoples who dwelled in the chief town of what is now the Campania region of Italy. In the area of Materdei there is a prehistoric necropolis dating back to the 3rd century B.C. as well as a settlement from the 19th century B.C. It is commonly held that Naples was founded by ancient Cumans in the 7th century B.C. The Cumans named it Parthenope (virgin), the name of the mythological siren. Legend says that after failing to enchant Ulysses, she and her sister sirens killed themselves, and the waves brought the body of Parthenope to the spot where the Cumans then founded the first Neapolitan nucleus. The area covered the island of Megaride (site, today, of the famous Castel dell’Ovo) and Mount Echia, better known as the Pizzofalcone Hill. This small nucleus later declined in importance when the Etruscans destroyed Cuma in the year 524 B.C. Only later, in 474, did the Greeks from Siracusa, allied with the Cumans, defeat the Etruscans and found a new town, Neapolis (new town), which, with the ancient Partenope, by then called simply Palepoli (old town), formed a single “polis.”
