The ancient shipyard, monument to Amalfi's sea power, is surprisingly well preserved in its unique medieval form. Its impressive elegant architecture, modelled from stone and mortar, consist of two parallel aisles covered by a double series of separate cross-vaults, supported by ten pillars. The museum of the Compass and of the Maritime Duchy of Amalfi documents and illustrates the great history of the ancient Maritime Republic of Amalfi. The museum's collection illustrates the evolution of nautical navigational instruments, among which is the compass, "invented", according to tradition by the Amalphitan Flavio Gioia, in 1302. The compass revolutionized navigation techniques, thereby opening up ocean rautes to the "New World". "The City-State", founded in839, remainded politically independent until 1135. Artefacts and relics represent the fundamental historical factors which permitted and preserved Amalfi's political autonomy,its social progress based on the rule of law and its economic prosperity:. The Translation's body of the Apostle St. Andrew from Constantinople to Amalfi, is re-evoked in a precious miniature of the Pontificalis ad usum ecclesiae salernitanae 492 and by the rare chronicle edited in 1656 by Andrè Du Saussay, Andreas frater Simon Petri deu de Gloria S.Andreae Apostuli. Exhibits of Roman and Medieval sculpture, ancient parchments, codices and manuscripts, statues in tufa, portraits of personages who belongs to the "Mythology of Amalfi", cartographic illustrations of the entity of the Duchy of Amalfi, artistic costumers of merchants and Ladies, knights and sailors, standard bearers and ambassadors, the duke and his bride, created according to the original model-designs of Roberto Scielzo (1955), all enable the visitor to relive one of the most exceptional moments in the history of Italy.
