Suggestive is the tale of the myth that gives origin to the numerous healing thermal waters of Ischia. The mythology tells about a conspiracy against Zeus, ideated by Gaea, who triggered against the Titans, the giant monsters, born from the blood of Uranus, who had enormous snakes for legs. From Campi Flegrei, where they lived, began their ascent to Olympus, hurling rocks and burning trees. The monsters would have won the battle if Zeus had not called for help a mortal, Hercules, semi-divine hero who, with cunning, defeated them, chaining each under a volcano from which they continue to erupt their anger: Enceladus under Etna and Typhon, the most terrible monster, under Ischia. Typhon continued to squirm under-earth, giving tremendous shakes and crying constantly. Juno, annoyed by his crying, promised Typhon the Jupiter’s forgiveness and anything else as long as he stopped crying. The giant agreed on condition that his tears were turned into healthy waters and his legs into branches. The Typhon’s request was accepted by Zeus, and so the tears were turned into giant hydrothermal springs on the island of Ischia and his feet, scary snakes before, became the vine branches that gave origin to the wine capital of the island. Many beneficial effects of the Ischia thermal waters, like fertility, according to mythology, brought about the birth of Aphrodite, because its radioactive waters mingled with the sea, fertilized by the Typhon’s genitals, Uranus’son.
