The history of Vico Equense has always been marked by the relationship between its land and the sea, both of which alternatively functioned as an element of union or of isolation. The roughness of the land led the first visitors of these sites to settle where the ground better lent itself to stable settlements, close to sea which was seen as a safe border as well as a source of economic opportunity. However, time proved that the sea was actually cause of turmoil: natural occurrences like high rising tides led to the withdrawal of the coast line along the sand beaches, or to pirate raids which from the Middle Ages to the 17th century scourged the coasts of southern Italy. Both events resulted in a part of the population moving to higher and safe places, eventually settling in farmhouses on the hills. Today’s careful observation of the geo-morphologic features of the land can help better interpret the history of Vico Equense. The following itineraries are an invitation to admire the nature aspects of the territory, and hope to be an opportunity to travel through time and into a part of the past that is yet to be discovered.
