The island of Nisida is located in an enchanting natural landscape of rare beauty in Phlegrean coast. Nisida has an ancient history: geo-morphological (eruptive cycle of the Campi Flegrei); mythical (the adventures of Ulysses); archaeological (summer Brutus’residence); defensive (until World War II). The defensive role of Nisida is demonstrated by its presence in the most important maps of the time. In the Angevin period, on top of the island a cylindrical watchtower was built. On its facility, in the sixteenth century, works began with the aim of the construction of ramparts tower, as noble residence of the Piccolomini and maritime surveillance (Monterey Project, 1635). In Bourbons age, two forts in Porto Paone were built, used until the Second World War. Today, the access to the island of Nisida is prohibited because inside there is a juvenile penitentiary. The current surveys of defensive architecture, recently discovered, are occasion of documentation for the enhancement of the existent.
