Nola is town and a modern municipality in the Metropolitan City of Naples in Italy. It lies on the plain between Mount Vesuvius and the Apennines. It is traditionally credited as the diocese that introduced bells to Christian worship.Since the 1990s, illegal dumping of toxic wastes by the Camorra has turned the surrounding area into a "Triangle of Death", with cancer rates far above the European average.HistoryPrehistoryExcavations at Nola-Croce del Papa have uncovered extensive evidence of a small village quickly abandoned at the time of the Avellino Eruption in the 17th century. This powerful eruption from Mount Vesuvius caused the inhabitants to leave behind a wide range of pottery and other artifacts. The foundations of their buildings are also preserved in imprints among the mud left by the eruption.AntiquityNola was one of the oldest cities of Campania, with its most ancient coins bearing the name Nuvlana.
