Amalfi is the main town on the Amalfi Coast to which it gives its name. As an authentic pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea, it has long been among the favorite tourist destinations of famous people and elite users. Historically it owes its foundation to the Romans: it is no coincidence that the written “Descendit ex patribus romanorum” stands out in its emblem. Amalfi is also famous for being one of the four Italian maritime republics: first by birth in the ninth century, it rivaled Pisa, Venice and Genoa for the hegemony of trade in the Mediterranean Sea. In Amalfi itself is the so-called Maritime Code, better known with the name of Tavole amalfitane, which enormous spread and influence had until the seventeenth century. After the period of maximum splendor around the eleventh century, it experienced a rapid decline due to the Norman domination of 1131 and the looting of the following years perpetrated by the Pisans. Even a storm and a consequent tidal wave, in 1343, destroyed much of the city. The great wealth of Amalfi is due in particular to the extraordinary paper tradition and its gold, the prized Amalfi paper. It is dedicated to the famous Paper Museum to visit absolutely together with the splendid Cathedral of Sant’Andrea.
