The amazing Amalfi Coast

Magically suspended between the blue sky and the iridescent colored sea, the Amalfi coast seems to be born from the palette of a painter who wanted to use the warmer color gradients for creating a landscape that enchants the visitor at the first shot, giving thrilling experience and such evocative view to doubt, for a moment, it is real. It is the land where the sweet scent of lemon blossoms harmonizes itself with the most aromatic one of the Mediterranean vegetation and the acrid aroma of saltiness; where the brilliant colors of the majolica domes, bougainvillea and carnations pergolas give an evident colored touch to the typical whitewashed houses, clinging to the last offshoots of the Lattari Mounts that plunge dramatically into the sea. A vertical landscape, in short, characterized by a picturesque labyrinth of stairways and narrow alleys, connecting the two main elements of this landscape: the mountains and the sea. A continuous succession of headlands and inlets, bays and fjords, interspersed with pebbled beaches and rocks on which you can still see the ancient viceregal towers, the first bulwark of the local population against the Saracen attacks.

The botanical garden of Naples

The Botanical Garden of Naples was founded at the beginning of the 19th century at a time when this city was dominated by the French. They carried out a plan which had been originally conceived by Ferdinand IV of Borbone and was prevented from being accomplished by a revolution in 1799.
The research done by the Botanical Garden is principally the study of the macro and micromorphological characteristics of some groups of plants for example : cycadales  and  orchidaceae,  ethnobotanical researches in rural areas of central and southern Italy and the analysing  of vegetable fossils from geographical sites in the Campania region.
Furthermore it is clear that the collections of the Botanical Garden represent a reservoir of vegetal  substances used for studies purposes by researchers in the Plant Biology Section of the Department of Biological Science..
