The first news of this village, formerly called Scazano, date back to the late fifteenth century. Schiazzano is a charming hamlet in the hills of the Sorrento peninsula, near Massa Lubrense. It is not far from Monticchio and situated on the northern slope of the hill that extends to Termini, in the highlands above the Mediterranean Sea.
There is a parish church built in honor of the Blessed Saviour. The Church is full of vestments and well kept. You can admire an old wooden picture representing the Transfiguration of the Savior. Shiazzano was one of the richest "Casali" because of its fortunes in maritime trade. Now it's a peaceful place that enjoys a tranquil position while being close to the seaside attractions of the Sorrento coast.
