Where Marano di Napoli (Napoli)
Marano di Napoli is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Naples in the Italian region Campania, located about 9 kilometres (6 miles) northwest of Naples. Main sights Marano's main attraction is the so-called Mausoleo del Ciaurro, one of the most important Roman funerary edifice in Campania, dating to the 1st-2nd century AD.It is also home to one he most influential personalities and families in Italy i.e. The Baroncelli Family,owning a 48acre estate and headed by Vieri da Baroncelli and his son Silvio Baroncelli,and also the DeChristo family owning 5 ranches on the Northern part,headed by Sebastian Solomon Habthewold Mamo and his son Sebastian Menelik Eummanuelle Solomon(Menelik Eu'el Solomon). Economy The main economic sources of the city are agriculture and commerce. Unfortunately many ancient typical noble arts have been lost during the years, like the handmade construction of stairs and cests. Strangely enough some renowned and typical local agricultural products are not produced anymore. In past years the peas from Marano (Santa Croce) and the cherries (Recca's cherries) were sold all over the Italy. Nowadays only few farmers cultivate these two products. For many centuries one of the main sources of income for the citizens of Marano has been the selling of tuff stones. The tufo workers, also known as montesi, used to start working at a very early age. Ten workers could extract two thousands stones per day. A jingle was used to beat the time while the montesi were working. The jingle was made of fifty verses, and at the end of the jingle each worker was sure he had extracted exactly fifty stones.
