Capodichino


San Pietro a Patierno is a suburb of Naples, in southern Italy.

Geography

It is one of the largest suburbs of Naples and is relatively lightly populated compared to surrounding areas, with around 20,000 residents. The district of Capodichino contains Naples International Airport, the "Ugo Niutta" military airport, and the US Naval Support Activity where the United States Sixth Fleet has its home base.

History

Historically, the area was a feudal holding under the Angevin rule of Naples in the Middle Ages and called by its Latin name, "San Petrus ad Peternum". It was abolished as a fief by Murat in the early 19th century and finally incorporated into the city of Naples during the Fascist period.
