Activities/Attractions: Minori was founded in the 7th century B.C. by the Etruscans and was later occupied by the Roman Patricians. All this is documented by the archaeological digs of the Villa Romana Maritima. The Villa Romana was built in the times of the emperor Augustus.
In the days of the Repubblica di Amalfi it was a place where many trade ships docked and sold their good off to intermediate sellers. In the year 987 it became a diocesan town.
The river Reghinna Minor flows through the center of this town. Many paper makers and millers settled along the bans of this river. It was here that the first prototypes of a dish were developed that we can’t even dream of living without these days – pasta. Back then the fresh pasta was dried in the sun in the town squares and along the “Lungomare” promenade. Back then it was especially popular to eat the pasta with different sea-foods, and that tradition is still quite popular today in Mediterranean cooking.
The cultivation of lemons already introduced during the 10th century, the production of hand made pasta, considered the best in the whole region, were the most profitable activities. The lemon trade is still today a very profitable activity, the variety of lemons called ‘Sfusato Amalfitano’ is partially exported and partially used to make the famous liquor ‘Limoncello’ of the Amalfi Coast.
The industry of hand made pasta was most flourishing till the past few decades, is now a tradition kept by the housewives. The famous ‘ricci’ from Minori, the ‘scialatielli’ and the ‘ndunderi’ are cooked according to ancient recipes, mainly during the local festivals and important occasions, and are traditions of a past that signs the history of a community.
