The Cathedral of Amalfi is the most famous monument of the Amalfi Coast in the world, key tourist destination for those who want to undertake its historic - artistic offered by the province of Salerno.


The Cathedral, dedicated to St. Andrew , was built in the ninth century, when the Maritime Republic began to establish itself as a commercial power . It was completely renovated in 1203 , in the form introduced by the Arab-Norman conquerors. Remodeled around 1570 , it was rebuilt in 800 after a disastrous collapse occurred at mid-century.


Dominating the coastal town , on top of an impressive staircase , mosaic , full of bright colors and shapes , covering the facade of the Cathedral , and depicts Christ enthroned in the middle of the Evangelists.


The Cathedral has a beautiful Romanesque bell tower , completed in 1276, its tiled mosaic and restored in 1929.


Beyond the porch is the entrance to the Cathedral, bronze , from Constantinople , as a gift of a patrician Amalfi.


The interior of the cathedral, with its coffered ceiling , is characterized by a central aisle , characterized by large wooden crucifix of the thirteenth century . , At the top , instead , on the altar is the painting of the Martyrdom of St. Andrew ; two majestic Egyptian granite columns supporting the arch , below two twisted columns and the two pulpits .


In the left aisle there is the Cross Mother of Pearl , brought from the Holy Land from Mgr Marini side of the Baptistery in red Egyptian porphyry and , walking down the aisle, the side chapels of some Tele Sylvester Mirra and his students .


In the right aisle we find the Reliquary Bust of St. Andrew of the century. XVI , and on the door, a large painting of St. Andrew and St. Matthew.






The oldest of the Cathedral of Amalfi is certainly the Basilica of SS . Crucifix , built before the year 833 , next to which , in 987, the current cathedral was built .


To admire the gallery, the ancient columns of the original structure , and two small chapels painted with scenes of Miracles and effigies of saints.


In the cases placed at the center of the hall is home to the Diocesan Museum , which is exposed in the Treasury of the Cathedral : a Angioina Mitra 1297 , embroidered with gems , gold, enamel and a " cobblestone " of 19,000 beads ; chisel of a silver-gilt chalice of the first half of the century. XIV; Sedan a Chinese century . XVIII; a magnificent collar of the order of the Golden Fleece ; rare pieces of silverware of the Neapolitan school ; and the magnificent Falca arising from a Venetian galley of the fifteenth century .


Do not miss a wooden statue of the Madonna and Child , and fragments of the mosaic of the original facade of the Duomo . Last in order of time the Cloister of Paradise , which was built between 1266 and 1268 and a cemetery for the Nobles of Amalfi .


Arabian style , decorated with interlaced arches on marble columns , it houses stone artifacts , sarcophagi from different eras and six chapels built between the employers' twelfth and fourteenth century.


Precious is then the Crypt which houses the body of St. Andrew, the first disciple of Jesus and patron saint of Amalfi , whose remains arrived in Amalfi in 1208 , brought from the East during the Fourth Crusade .


The Crypt is today in baroque form dated in 1600 with scenes from the Passion of Jesus, set between rich and elegant stucco decorations .


The central altar , rich marble , was designed by Domenico Fontana. The large bronze statue is the work of Michelangelo Naccherino , Florence ( 1604).


Next there are the marble statues representing San Lorenzo and Santo Stefano. The holy relics are enclosed in a silver urn , placed under the central altar , the work of Domenico Fontana.

The Ancient Arsenals of the Amalfi Republic


Only example of a southern shipyard , eleven arches are present only surviving part of the twenty - twenty-two that opened directly to the sea. Inside are statues medieval elements of plunder and the Galleon of Amalfi, one that competes at the Historical Regatta .





Handmade paper of Amalfi

In the enchanting Valley of the Mills , where once was located on the industrial district of the city, one can encounter in the old mills , some of which are still in efficiency.


Worth visiting the Museum of Handmade paper of Amalfi , consisting of an old paper mill and a library with about 3,000 texts on the origin of the paper.


Of the 16 active cards at the end of the eighteenth century , today there are a dozen in operation , producing more precious handmade paper .


The Amalfi were the first in Europe to make paper , learning the techniques in the thirteenth century, thanks to the commercial relationships they had with the Arab world.

The manufacture of paper, which derived from the maceration of plant demanded rooms powered by hydraulic power , so the mills were located mostly in the valleys of the rivers edge .

The history of Amalfi and its monuments


Amalfi - duomo
Il Duomo di Amalfi è il monumento della Costiera Amalfitana più conosciuto nel mondo, meta turistica fondamentale per chi vuole intraprendere gli itinerari storico - artistici offerti dalla provincia di Salerno.
Il Duomo, dedicato a Sant’Andrea, fu costruito nel IX secolo, quando la Repubblica Marinara cominciò ad affermarsi come potenza commerciale. Venne completamente ristrutturato nel 1203, nelle forme arabo-normanne introdotte dai conquistatori. Rimaneggiato attorno al 1570, fu ricostruito nell'800 dopo un disastroso crollo avvenuto a metà del secolo.
A dominare sulla cittadina costiera, in cima ad una suggestiva scalinata, il mosaico, ricco di forme e luminosi colori, che ricopre la facciata della Cattedrale, e rappresentante Cristo in trono in mezzo agli Evangelisti.
Il Duomo ha uno splendido campanile romanico, terminato nel 1276, rivestito di maioliche a mosaico e restaurato nel 1929.
Oltrepassato il portico si trova la porta d'ingresso al Duomo, in bronzo, proveniente da Costantinopoli, quale dono di un patrizio amalfitano.
L'interno del Duomo, con il soffitto a cassettoni, è contraddistinto da una navata centrale, caratterizzata dal grande Crocifisso Ligneo del XIII sec.;in alto invece, sull’altare, è la tela del Martirio di S. Andrea; due maestose colonne di granito egiziano sostengono l’arco trionfale, più avanti due Colonnine Tortili ed i due Pulpiti.
Nella navata sinistra vi è la Croce di Madreperla, portata dalla Terra Santa da Mons. Marini, di fianco il Battistero in porfido rosso egiziano e, scendendo lungo la navata, nelle cappelline laterali alcune Tele di Silvestro Mirra e dei suoi Allievi.
Nella navata destra troviamo il Busto Reliquario di S. Andrea del sec. XVI e, sulla porta, una grande tela raffigurante S. Andrea e S. Matteo.

L’elemento più antico del Duomo di Amalfi è certamente la Basilica del SS. Crocifisso, edificata prima dell’anno 833, accanto alla quale, nel 987, sorse l'attuale Cattedrale.
Da ammirare il matroneo, le antiche colonne della struttura originaria, e due piccole cappelle affrescate con Scene di Miracoli ed Effigi di Santi.
Nelle teche poste al centro dell’aula è allestito il Museo diocesano, nel quale è esposto il Tesoro della Cattedrale: una Mitra Angioina del 1297, ricamata con gemme, oro, smalti ed un “pavè” di 19.000 perline; un cesello del Calice in argento dorato della prima metà del sec. XIV; una Portantina Cinese del sec. XVIII; un magnifico Collare dell’ordine del Toson d’Oro; pezzi rari di argenteria di scuola napoletana; e la magnifica Falca derivante da una galea veneziana del XV sec.
Da non tralasciare una statua in legno raffigurante una Madonna col Bambino, e frammenti del mosaico originario della facciata del Duomo. Ultimo in ordine di tempo il Chiostro del Paradiso, edificato tra il 1266 e il 1268 e destinato a cimitero dei nobili amalfitani.
Di stile arabo, decorato con archi intrecciati su colonnine marmoree, conserva al suo interno reperti lapidei, sarcofagi di epoche diverse e sei cappelline patronali edificate tra il XII ed il XIV sec.
Preziosissima è poi la magnifica Cripta dove è custodito il corpo di S. Andrea,il primo discepolo di Gesù e Santo protettore di Amalfi, le cui spoglie giunsero ad Amalfi nel 1208, portate dall'Oriente nel corso della quarta crociata.
La Cripta si presenta oggi nella forma barocca datata nel 1600 con scene della Passione di Gesù, incastonate fra ricche ed eleganti decorazioni a stucco.
L’altare centrale, in marmo pregiato, è opera di Domenico Fontana. La grande statua bronzea è opera di Michelangelo Naccherino, fiorentino (1604).
Accanto ci sono le statue marmoree che rappresentano San Lorenzo e Santo Stefano. Le sacre reliquie sono racchiuse in un urna d’argento, posta sotto l’altare centrale, opera di Domenico Fontana.

Gli Antichi Arsenali della Repubblica Amalfitana
Unico esempio di cantiere nautico meridionale, le undici arcate attuali sono solo parte superstite delle venti-ventidue che aprivano direttamente sul mare. All’interno sono conservate alcune statue medievali, elementi di spoglio ed il Galeone di Amalfi, quello che gareggia in occasione della Regata Storica.


Carta a mano di Amalfi
Nell'incantevole Valle dei Mulini, dove un tempo era ubicato il quartiere industriale dell'antica città, ci si può imbattere nelle vecchie cartiere, alcune delle quali ancora in efficienza.
Degno di essere visitato il Museo della Carta a mano di Amalfi, costituito da un'antica cartiera e da una biblioteca con circa 3.000 testi sull'origine della carta.
Delle 16 cartiere attive alla fine del XVIII secolo, oggi ne restano in funzione una decina, che producono ancora pregiatissima carta a mano.
Gli amalfitani furono i primi in Europa a fabbricare la carta, apprendendone le tecniche nel XIII secolo grazie ai rapporti commerciali che avevano con il mondo arabo.
La fabbricazione della carta , che derivava dalla macerazione dei vegetali, richiedeva locali alimentati dalla forza idraulica, per questo le cartiere furono ubicate per lo più nelle vallate ai margini dei fiumi.
