The origins of Scala are enveloped in clouds of legend. In the 4th century AD, some Roman families left for Constantinople, to populate the New Rome which Constantine had founded on the Bosphorus. On the Ionian Sea, a powerful storm forced them to land in Ragusa, Dalmatia, which they left after a certain time to return to Italy. They then founded a village in Lucania which they called 'Melfi'. They left that place to seek safety in the Lattari Mountains where, along with the indigenous residents, they built Scala, the oldest inhabited center of the Coast. From Scala they would then descend to the valley to found Amalfi and Atrani.
