Semmarezio: The Martyrs Square

The Martyrs Square

Defined by its location, the Terrace of Procida, this space is a wonderful little square that was one once a scene of a tragic event in the past - the hanging of sixteen citizens, whose sole crime was joining the Neapolitan Republic. Since then Spassìggio was given the name of Martyrs' Square, which is the transition zone or crossroads between the villages of Corricella, Marina Grande and Terra Murata. The main attraction of the square is the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a beautiful example of baroque style architecture and the Palazzo De Iorio built in the second half of the XVIII on the foundations of a gothic building. Another noteworthy sight is the statue of the illustrious Antonio Scialoja, an economist and politician of Procida. The name "Sèmmarèzio" is not only related to the square because of its enchanting landscape, but also due to the four houses which surround the area. These houses are the first urban settlements that were build outside the citadel of Terra Murata: multi-story, pastel-colored, grouped around in a large courtyard or, in other words, a dead end. These hamlets, dating back to the XVI century, follow one another in narrow winding cobbled streets and covered passageways. The most important and largest is, undoubtedly, Casale Vascello, which is also called "a vessel broken through" for the presence of two inputs.

ArchitetturaPanoramaStoria
  • Il nome Sèmmarèzio, non è riferito soltanto allo splendido panorama che si ammira dalla piazza, ma anche ai quattro Casali che delimitano l’area e deriva dalla pronuncia dialettale di "Santa Maria delle Grazie"

  • Oltre allo splendido panorama che si ammira dalla piazza, la zono è visitata soprattutto per i quattro Casali che delimitano l’area. Si tratta dei primi insediamenti urbani, risalenti al XVI secolo, nati al di fuori della cittadella di Terra Murata, e raggruppati intorno ad un ampio cortile o a un vicolo cieco.

  • I casali sono complessi di abitazioni a più piani raggruppate intorno ad un grande cortile, che furono i primi insediamenti nati fuori dall'area della Terra Murata nel 16° sec. Il Casàle, IL Casalièddo, La Schianata ed il Vascello, tutti contraddistinti da un gruppo di case color pastello costruite intorno ad un cortile o ad una strada chiusa.
