Il gigante Tifeo sotto l\'isola d\'Ischia (27)
Geological and historical origins.

According to the most recent theories, the island of Ischia, has volcanic origins. In fact the Greek myth of Tifeo sees him as a volcanism personification: the rebellious giant who was condemned by Jupiter at the foot of the island of Pithecusae (Greek Pithekoussai), today's Ischia, erupting flames and hot boiling water and causing earthquakes by its movement.

In Ischia, like in all the other territories of recent volcanic activity, volcanism left its mark influencing human settlements. There are too many gaps concerning the island population during prehistory, so that we still do not know how volcanic phenomena influenced the life of the islanders.

As matter of fact Neolithic Age materials are sporadic and isolated. The most important archaeological finds come from the Cilento locality (Rif.1). Together with some fragments of ceramic, archaeologists also found some terra-cotta weights for fishing nets and some stone tools, in particular some knife blades and tools residual flakes made of flint and obsidian.

Then, during the first half of 8th century B.C. and after the extrusion of a near eruptive vein, the village situated (from the Bronze Age and until the First Iron Age) on the Castiglione's hill, between Porto d'Ischia and Casamicciola, (Rif.2), was completely abandone
