Marechiaro is a small village that in the sixties was one of the symbols of the sweet life in Italy becoming famous for its Hollywood, for its typical restaurants that overlook the splendid panorama of the gulf and for the characteristic “Scoglione”.
From Marechiaro you can also admire the panoramic view of the entire city of Naples, Vesuvius, up to the Sorrento peninsula and the island of Capri that appears exactly in front of the typical beach of the village. The detail that most contributed to the mythology of this hamlet is the so-called Fenestella (in Italian finestrella). Legend has it that the Neapolitan poet and writer Salvatore Di Giacomo, seeing a small window on whose windowsill there was a carnation, had the inspiration for what is one of the most famous Neapolitan songs: Marechiare. Still today the window exists, and there is always a fresh carnation on the windowsill, in addition to a commemorative plaque in white marble with engraved the score of the song and the name of its author.
