House on Masso
It is the symbol of the stone houses of the island of Ischia, the visitor crosses the highway that leads from Serrara Panza through the Ciglio perceives suddenly to its right, after a series of curves, which stands as a lookout on the sea against the horizon, on a huge rock that looks tuff should have rolled at any moment. They are unaware of its existence from a document from the State Archives of Naples dating back to 1607, which tells about "Ciglio with stone house" consists of a cellar dug deeply into the bottom, from the living areas at the top made tuff, a dry wall that encloses a yard, and access is via a narrow path that leads from the road to a wooden door. Its destination is changed several times in recent years: from home, a store of wine, a pizza restaurant. A few meters on the opposite side of the road, another "stone", with some additions made more modern aesthetic, but as always, perfectly camouflaged in the surrounding environment.
