Amalfi, and its particular coast, is considered perhaps the most beautiful part of Italy. It is a quiet and picturesque seaside resort with a temperate climate and incomparable natural beauties.


Amalfi, originally Roman, was the first Sea Republic of Italy. After the fall of the Roman Empire, it was the first city to re-establish relationship between East and West by transporting and introducing into Italy exotic merchandise such as carpets, coffee and paper.

Amalfi had its own coin (The Tarì) and was the home of Flavio Gioia, the inventor of the compass, and gave the navigators the famous maritime law known as 'Tabula de Amalpha'.


Below follow some suggestions about the places to visit:
The Duomo, built about the 6th century and dedicated to St.Andrew the Apostle whose remains are kept in the crypt; 
• The Cloister of Paradise, set beside the Duomo, that was built the 13th century in Arabian style;
• The Paper Museum, where we can see the tools used over the centuries for making paper by hand;
• The Emerald Grotto, a fantastic green temple full of figures, caryatids and bas-reliefs formed by dripping water from the vaulted ceiling, over the thousand of years. An interesting feature: the underwater pottery crib.

The 'Paper Museum' at Amalfi
Amalfi lies between the Valle dei Mulini and the sea. It's the great stage on which one of world's most famous histories unfolded, the Marine Republique of Amalfi, which illuminated the Mediterranean with grandiose enterprises.


That small space enclosed by the harsh Monti Lattari also earned another claim to fame for the production of hand made paper. There are no official documents to enable us to determine how far back the first production system appeared, but it was presumably around the first half of the XII century.


The people of Amalfi had learned the paper production techniques from the Arabs, indeed they called it 'carta bambagina' from the name of the Arab Town El Mambig, though another school of thought believes that name is associated with 'bambagia' (cotton wool).


Many foreigners, attracted by the quality of the product, came to Naples to have their works printed on Amalfi paper. It is not possible to establish just how many paper mills there were in Valle dei Mulini.
This museum is housed in an old paper mill that dates back to XIV century (approx).


Today in the paper mill turned museum we can see the tools used over the centuries for making paper by hand. There are the old wooden mallets, operated by a hydraulic wheel, which used to beat and mash rags of linen, cotton and hemp, previously gathered in the mighty 'stone beaters'.

The mixture obtained was lifted from the beater with special wooden scoops and placed in the vat where it diluted with water.

The vat was composed of a tank, lined on the inside with majolica, high enough to allow the operator the most comfortable standing position.

The operator would immerse in the vat a frame, the bottom of which was made of a wire screen with fine mesh, and collect a certain amount of pulp, distributing it evenly over the screen. . 
After the water had drained off, a thin layer of pulp was left.


The 'sheet' was then placed on a 'couch' of woollen felt and covered with another felt.
Many 'sheets', piled up with the same procedure, were then placed under a press to eliminate the water residue.

There is one such press in the museum, still in working order, dating back to the XVII century. After the sheets had been pressed, the operator removed them and placed them one on the top of the other, creating to so called 'post'. The 'posts' were then transferred to the drying room to be died in the air. 
The sheets were then treated with a solution of an animal gelatin and smoothed by hand, after accurate quality selection.
But the various level of the paper mill also present some more 'modern' aspects.
