Translated Jeff Matthews
An interesting website has published an article that reconstructs the story of the so-called "Lava dei Vergini" (a quarter of Naples. "Lava" refers to the periodic drastic flooding that afflicted the area for centuries, flooding from rainfall run-off so severe that it actually shaped the landscape of that section of the city.
The Italian version is on the website "Cose di Napoli": La Lava dei Vergini.
There is an English-language icon for a translation that is, unfortunately, inadequate. There is another version on the site Naples: Life, Death & Miracles at this link. http://www.naplesldm.com/
