THE ARCHIFLEGREO


The "Campi Flegrei" represent a highly integrated land system, which is currently part of the Regional Natural Park of "Campi Flegrei ". It is one of the regional areas with the highest environmental, historical and archaeological significance.
The name itself suggests the volcanic nature of this area (phlegraios means burning) that extends to the West area of Naples to Cuma and Capo Miseno, including the islands of Ischia, Procida, and Vivara.
In this area, where a single volcanic system formed 42,000 years ago, the "Archiflegreo", is still active, we can recognize at least twenty-four craters and volcanic edifices, some of which are unique effusive gaseous (Solfatara) or hydrothermal evidencies (Agnano, Pozzuoli, Lucrino) also due to the phenomenon, called bradyseism.
