discovery SORRENTO  
  Mills' Vallone  
The peninsula sorrentina is ploughed from well five vallonis that in the ancient times were used for pointing out the border between a country and the other (Destination, Plain, Sant'Agnello, Sorrento). during the centuries the vallonis have been modified by the hand of the man for which only someone and only partially preserve the native characteristics.
The Vallone of the Mills of Sorrento is better that preserved; from it they were issued other three vallonis: one, before the second halves the eight hundred (epoch in which Rate Plaza was built), it came up to the Marina Piccola; a second reached Marina Grande passing next to the Door Parsano and to the Civil hospital; the last, departing from the Villa “You Cliff”, it extended him up to the hills. You/he/she can be admired only today the central part of the Vallone that extends him from Rate Plaza up to the Villa “You Rupe”e from here up to the Door of the Anastasis.
The vallonis of Sorrento belonged first to the family Rate and then to the Correales. It was really a Correale that made to build the I bring down the Marina Piccola. It had initially called Head Buck, only subsequently to the recovery of the Roman temple devoted the name to Cerere you/he/she was turned into Head of Cerere.
The Vallone draws the name from the presence of a mill that was used up to the beginning of the Nine hundred to grind the wheat for the Sorrentinis. The waters that went down from the hills and those spring fed an attached sawmill to the mill. The sawmill had a strategic role for the workmanship of various wood types (cherry, ulivo and walnut-tree) that you/he/she was used for the production of manufactured articles of inlay. Another characteristic of the Vallone was given by the presence of a public lavatoio where the women of the people went to wash the cloths. After 1866 the Vallone was abandoned for the filling of the final part of the same (at the base of Rate Plaza, in the ample curve there is today still a small gate that connects Marina Piccola with the Vallone).
Testimony related to the life that developed him in the Vallone is had by the manifold paintings and photo that were realized by travellers and foreign artists and that they document the life that developed him and the people, above all farmers and fishermen, that spent you good part of their day.
