was once a major center of European culture and commerce. The
mighty Republic of Amalfi thrived from the 9th Century through
the 11th Century. It was home to 50,000 people, and an
important player in the Mediterranean Sea trade. The maritime
code created here, the Tavole Amalfitane, was adopted as the
code of the entire Mediterranean for centuries. In the
1100’s, Amalfi’s very own Flavio Gioia invented the
compass. The art of paper-making was centered here, with the
Republic bringing the craft with it on journeys to the rest of
Europe and the Arab world. But over time, Amalfi’s influence
eroded, and attacks from Pisa to the north left the town
deserted and powerless. Only recently has the city reinvented
itself as a tourist attraction, with people drawn here by its
small-town Italian charm, and the beautiful stretch of land
known as the Amalfi Coast.
