THE BIRTH OF THE COAST

The Scala origins are surrounded  by clouds of legend. Some families of Rome in the fourth century A.D. They would leave for Constantinople, to populate the New Rome that Constantine had founded the Bosphorus. In the Ionian Sea a powerful storm forced them to land in Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, who left after a certain time, to return to Italy. Founded, then, a village in Lucania, which they called "Melfi." They left that place to find safety among the Lattari Mountains, where they built Scala, the oldest town in the Costa, along with native living there. From Scala would then descended to the valley to found Amalfi and Atrani.
