Thoughts About History

I have to learn much about history of the region Campania in the last period and pass great part of my time to study. And it's clear that I have many thoughts about the life in this or that period. So, I want to write some posts to describe them here.

On my photos you see the New Castel of Naples. I thought, it was built in the period when the castles were unuseful for the defence of the town. And as the conseguence it was something like a decoration. Yesterday I knew that it was not only the real resedence of the generations of governors but was the aim of the conquerors too.

Looking at this door that is only memorial, I thought: it had to be terrible to live in that period and think that in every moment can arrive an other conqueror. There were centuries and centuries of wars, local and "global" etc. Every day something new. No one day of peace.

How could hey survive?

  1. The castle looks very beautiful but I would like to live in that era where you have to protect yourself this way.
