A TASTE OF CAMPANIA

La Campania è una bella regione. Purtroppo le cronache e i molti luoghi comuni non le fanno onore e offuscano un grande passato, sconosciuto a molti.
Molte similitudini la accomunano alla Liguria in primis quelle tra i due capoluoghi Genova e Napoli con i loro porti e le loro storie mercantili e le due coste quella Ligure di levante e quella sorrentina-amalfitana.
Leggendo alcuni libri si può apprendere che:
– Napoli, al tempo dei Borboni e il Regno delle Due Sicile, è stata la prima città al mondo ad avere l’acqua nelle case
– Napoli era tra le prime città d’Europa per popolazione, seconda solo a Parigi.
– La prima galleria ferroviaria del mondo fu costruita in quella che fu anche la prima linea ferroviaria in Italia, la Napoli-Portici
– A Napoli viene installata la prima illuminazione a gas.
– Anche il primo esperimento con l’energia elettrica in Italia avvenne in Campania a Capodimonte.
– La flotta borbonica ebbe la prima nave a vapore sulla rotta Napoli-Palermo, primi nel mediterraneo e quarti nel mondo.
– Fu sempre da Napoli che partì la prima nave linea Palermo-New york, un piroscafo ad elica con tre alberi.
etc. etc e si potrebbe continuare….
