Itinerary 2 The Old City

Aristotle, one of the most famous Greek philosophers, said : "the harmony is in the contrast..." and Naples well represents this idea through its "decumani", Superior, Inferior and Major. The "decumani" bring the tourists from the Greek and the Roman town to the Medieval one, then towards the Renaissance to the unification of Italy. The "Decumani" are 3 broad straight-roads according to the plan of Ippodamo from Mileto. They run from east to west and are cut perpendicularly by 20 smaller roads called "cardines". Where the "decumani" and the "cardines" meet each other, the "insulas", part of town, rich of private noble and public sacred buildings, are. It determined the privation of the spaces between nobility and clergy.
