THE PHLEGRAEAN LAKES

Campi Flegrei literally means “Burning Fields”, an ancient name given to the area that today includes the towns of Pozzuoli, Bacoli, Baia, Monte di Procida and Quarto, situated just a few kilometres distance from central Naples, Italy.

Throughout this fascinating territory the force of nature combines the beauty of its sea and lakes, to the mysterious charm of this volcanic land.

The Phlegraean zone is full of valuable and intricate evidence regarding past Greek and Roman traditions.

The lakes of  “Miseno”, “Averno”, “Fusaro”, “Lucrino” and “Patria” still characterize today the Phlegraean-Domitian coastline parting from the West of Naples and reaching the “Volturno” river’s mouth.

The use of the Phlegraean lakes in Roman times as reservoirs was quite common, cultivating mussels and fish produce.

The exploitation of the precious environmental resources gave life to sumptuous banquets that were held regularly in luxurious and elegant villas present throughout the area.

My Country magazine highlighted the Parco in Maschera programme in last month’s August edition with a great choice of events, dance, music and theatre taking place throughout the Phlegraean Fields (Parco Archeologico dei Campi Flegrei)

Two archaeological icons of the territory – Macellum (Tempio di Serapide) and Piscina Mirabilis will host various upcoming events.  The Macellum site, considered as one of the major symbols of Pozzuoli will host an innovative musical light show “Ouverture, verso il mediterraneo e oltre” organized by ATI Macellum and scheduled from dusk to Midnight on 25th and 26th September.

The Mirabilis cistern is located in the higher part of Miseno and was the final point of the aqueduct connected to Acquaro di Serino situated in Irpinia.  This unique and imposing structure measures 15 metres in height and 70 meters in length, originally supplying water to the major military port of Misenum and the imperial fleet Classis Praetoria Misenensis.

The archaeological treasure Piscina Mirabilis/Cisterna Mirabile will be hosting StraMirabilis in famiglia  – FREE GUIDED TOURS and family educational workshops throughout September 2020 – organized by ATS StraMirabilis (Associazione culturale Misenum, Cooperativa Sociale Tre Foglie, Coop4art)
