Located in the hillside of the mountain upon the sea level, this land over the years attracted loving artists from all over the world; visual artists, musicians and writers discovered in Ravello a unique place where to find peace and inspiration. Many and many artists gave birth to their masterpieces in this enchanted slice of land. It provided inspiration to André Gide, one of the giant of French Literature and Giovanni Boccaccio, one of the voices of the Italian Renaissance, raved about Ravello in his Decameron.
Ravello is as well a land where music always found a glorious expression.
