By the way, it is said that many voices together, human and animal, make a place in the heart: The Bay looks like from the ridge of Mount St. Costanzo, a privileged point on that stretch of the polychrome sea. And then the songs of the mythical winged creatures, they wanted to seduce Greek heroes and Latin poets and even seduces here, among Ieranto and the Lubrense Ateneo.

It moves from the picturesque groups of houses of Nerano to join , step by step, with rumours of a mythical and literary landscape , alive and popular. A vast horizon, therefore, binds in one the islets of the Sirens (today Li Galli) and the crested rock (then Tre Pizzi): rock icons and bird sanctuaries, now as in the days of Ulysses.
