This road was the idea of German steel industrialist A.F. Krupp, who to this end purchased the "Fondo Certosa" (Certosa Estate), where part of the Gradens of Augustus are located.
The road, which was built in 1902 on a project by Emilio Mayer, starts here and characteristically zig-zags its way to Marina Piccola.
According to architect R. Pane, it proves "that even a road can be a work of art, not just metaphorically speaking, but in the true aesthetic meaning of the world".

How to reach
