Atrani


Subito a ridosso da Amalfi , sorge Atrani, che ai tempi della Repubblica Marinara era quartiere residenziale della nobiltà e dei maggiorenti. Storicamente, Atrani ha condiviso il destino di Amalfi: presso la chiesa del SS. Salvatore venivano incoronati i dogi Della Repubblica, mentre era dalla Chiesa del Bando, sulle pendici del monte Aureo che sovrasta l’abitato, che venivano proclamate le sentenze e appunto, i bandi del governo cittadino.

Raccolto intorno al campanile della Collegiata S.M. Maddalena, il paese ha conservato la stessa struttura di allora: case addossate l’una all’altra, vicoli, viuzze e scalinatelle che scendono verso la centrale piazza Umberto I.

Tradizione vuole che ad Atrani abbia avuto i natali celebri di Masaniello, che capitanò poi nel XVII sec. La rivolta popolare contro la Dominazione spagnola. E’ ancora oggi possibile visitare la casa che ospitò i primi anni di vita del capopopolo partenopeo.

Ad Atrani la vigilia di Natale viene festeggiata in modo davvero originale. Ci si ritrova tutti in piazza, all’alba, per fare colazione con caffè e cappuccino, ma soprattutto per scambiare (mangiare) i dolci della tradizione (zeppole, roccoccò, mostaccioli, etc.)

 

Our Italian secret is no longer a secret.

We have had a secret for many years. We have talked about it, but we have never shown it to anybody…

In May 2013 we revealed it to the closest family (16 altogether) in connection with my 70th birthday. We invited the family for a week’s stay in beautiful Atrani together with us.

Atrani is situated south of Naples on the coast of the Mediterranean a stone's throw from Amalfi.

Very few know of the small village. Attrani is the smallest municipality in Italy. The little village in the mountains is a piece of authentic Italy. Here the inhabitants live like they have always done. Small children are born, and old folk die. Here the “piazza” is the meeting place for great and small. Here you find the small shops. Still.

In this little paradise we had hired four old patrician houses right in the heart of Atrani, and among the locals.

The village has been built up two mountainsides divided by a river which is covered by the town’s only street. You go about on stairs. The four houses were situated fairly close to each other. Therefore we could follow the other’s lives and call “Buon giorno” to each other.

I had the feeling that this little paradise was now going to be shown to my family, just like a boyfriend is going to be introduced for the first time…. How would they react? Would they be able to feel that this was “the real thing” just like we felt at our first meeting with dear little Atrani.

And vice versa: the inhabitants (many of whom have become our friends) how would they react to an invasion of 16 people for a whole week?

We must state that the experiment was a great success. Atrani accepted the family, and vice versa. The family got kisses and hugs by small and great. Everybody was positive, even the strict police constable who at one time thought that the game of football in the piazza got a little violent, and he told the boys that the weekly football training had started on the artificial football pitch. Here they were invited to play join in.

The week in May has impressed us all, and since then our children and grandchildren have said:

“Now this was the end of your Italian secret, we’ll return.”

And of course we answer: “You’ll be most welcome, but please take care of the little paradise.”
