The city of Napoli was established by the Cumans in the VIII century BC and was subsequenty one of the most important Greek settlement of the Magna Graecia. Napoli played an important role also during the Roman Empire; it was frequented by the emperors Tiberius, Claudius and Nero during holiday times, and the last Roman Emperor, Romolo Augusto, was imprisoned in Castel dell'Ovo (formerly, a fortified house). During the Middle Ages, Napoli became one of the most important city in Europe. The Normans included Napoli in the Anseatic League. Frederick II founded the Napoli University in 1224, the first laic university in Europe. During the Angevins, Napoli became the Capital of the Sicily Kingdom (often indicated as Napoli Kingdom) and one of the most important center of Humanism. In the following centuries, Napoli hosted many poets (Petrarca, Boccaccio, Tasso, Marino, Leopardi), philosophers (Thomas Aquinas, Bruno, Vico), artists (Antonello da Messina, Vasari, Guido Reni, Caravaggio, de Ribera) and composers (Pergolesi, Scarlatti, Mozart, Cimarosa, Paisiello, Bellini). Capital of the Two Sicily Kingdom from 1816, Napoli was finally enclosed into the Italy Kingdom in 1860. Nowadays, the city of Naples mantains the splendour of the '700 period; at the same time it has been enriched with modern infrastructures like the new subway (ranked one of best of Europe) with which it is possible to easily reach historical and modern areas of the town.
