Global Citizen Diplomacy of 21st Century — one individual, one city at a time
The Amalfi coast is without question the very synonym of natural beauty. This stretch of coast encompasses more spectacular beauty into its score of miles than any region of comparable area on earth. Amalfi was born “between the sunset of the Western Empire and the dawn of the Eastern.” Through the centuries, Amalfi grew richer, building an unrivaled military and merchant navy. She declared herself an independent republic in the 9th century, thus becoming one of the four maritime republics of Italy, joining Genoa, Pisa and Venice. Amalfi is noted for its lemons, ceramics, seafood, fishing, and as the birthplace of Flavio Gioia, the inventor of the compass, and the home of the Cathedral of St. Andrew, the patron saint of Amalfi. Today it is a mecca for artists the world over.
