Abstract

The complexity of the Phlegraean Fields is linked to the constant interaction between the different historical and material dimensions of the landscape. An elaborate context, in which one cannot always follow regular stratigraphy, with constant and well differentiated overlaps. The archaeological landscape is characterised by high conditions of analysis, as in the case of Cuma, together with phenomena of dissolution and rarefaction in contexts eventually without an historical frame. This paper is intended to provide an updated picture of the interaction between the archaeological and urban landscapes in such an extremely illustrative context, such as the area between Cuma and Miseno, characterized by varying dynamics of settlement, both in ancient and in modern times. The research, still in progress, has been able to collect new data that, while updating the archaeological map of the area, on the other hand show mainly the signs of change in settlement features over time. The identification of new archaeological sites, previously unregistered, in highly urbanized environments, has shown that the territory is still able, despite the aggression of modern building activities, of producing history and knowledge. The discussion of available data will mainly focus on defining the historical and archaeological markers, interpreting the settlement characteristics and better defining the relationship between the ‘invisible landscape’, made up of isolated remains of archaeological evidence in the urban fabric, and other landscapes, as those of monumental archaeological sites, those of modern sites, up to landscapes now ‘without history’.
