Museum |  Amalfi 

The little civic and naval museum of Amalfi showcases the city's impressive maritime history.
Located in the Arsenali, the impressive vaulted stone dockyards where Amalfi's ships were once built, the "Museo della Bussola e del Ducato Marinaro di Amalfi" (Museum of the Compass and of the Maritime Dukedom of Amalfi) is dedicated to the city's rich seafaring history. It keeps the Codice Foscariniano - a 17th century compendium of nautical rules and history that contains one of the earliest examples of the Tabula de Amalpha -  as well as various antique nautical instruments, some valuable paintings by local artists, and the traditional costumes for the Regata Storica delle Quattro Antiche Repubbliche Marinare, the historical boat race between Amalfi, Venice, Pisa, and Genova.
