Quick presentation of origin of Sorrento

 

Sorrento History

About the origin of Sorrento the historian Diodoro Siculo, relating to a legend, asserted that the town was founded by Liparos, son of Ausone, who was the king of the Ausoni and son of Ulysses and of the witch Circe. According to this legend, the origin of the town dates back to an ancient Italic population, that of the Ausoni, which accounted for one of the most ancient ethnic groups.

 

Sorrento after Eruption of the Vesuvius of 24th August 79 A.D.

On 24th August 79A.D. the town was seriously damaged by the earthquake, caused by the eruption of the Vesuvius which destroyed the towns surrounding the area such as Pompei, Herculaneum and Stabia.

 

Sorrento as a holiday resort

Sorrento during the first half of the Imperial age it became a very popular seaside resort among the wealthy patricians, who considered the entire Gulf of Naples, from the Flegreian Plains to Sorrento, an ideal place to spend the summer months and the otium periods. Therefore several Villae Maritimae were edificated in this area: magnificent lodgings, each with a landing place from the sea, spacious private residences, sometimes also farms where oil and wine were produced with the crops belonging to the dominus. Horace of Sorrento

The fame of Sorrento is also commemorated by Horace and Stazius, who in his work Silvae praised the beautiful sights and in particular the Villa of his friend Pollio Felice. Sorrento in 420 A.D.

 

Sorrento had an archiepiscopal site around 420 A.D., and after the fall of the Roman Empire it was subjected to Byzantium. It was in vain besieged by the Longobard. It became a free Dukedom and had to defend itself from raids by the Saracens; it struggled against Amalfi, one of the powerful Maritime Republics, to claim its independance.
