Norman Douglas, Friedrich Alfred Krupp, Jacques d'Adelswärd-Fersen, Christian Wilhelm Allers, Emil von Behring, Curzio Malaparte, Axel Munthe, and Maxim Gorky are all reported to have owned a villa there, or to have stayed there for more than three months.Swedish Queen Victoria often stayed there because Axel Munthe was her doctor.Fossils of wild boars have been discovered, lending credence to the "kapros" etymology; on the other hand, the Romans called Capri "goat island".Finally, there is also the possibility that the name derives from an Etruscan word for "rocky", though any historical Etruscan rule of the island is disputed. The sides of the island are perpendicular cliffs and the surface of the island is composed of more cliffs.It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic.Some of the main features of the island include the following: the Marina Piccola (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara (a high panoramic promenade lined with villas), the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea (the Faraglioni), the town of Anacapri, the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra), and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.
Augustus developed Capri; he built temples, villas, aqueducts, and planted gardens so he could enjoy his private paradise.
Rose O'Neill, the American illustrator and creator of the Kewpie, owned the Villa Narcissus, formerly owned by the famous Beaux-Arts painter Charles Caryl Coleman.
Dame Gracie Fields also had a villa and restaurant on the island and is buried there. In 1908, Lenin was hosted by Maxim Gorky, the Russian author, at his house near the Giardini Augusto.
The chosen representatives then choose two mayors to govern with them. Evidence of human settlement was discovered during the Roman era; according to Suetonius, when the foundations for the villa of Augustus were being excavated, giant bones and 'weapons of stone' were discovered.
The emperor ordered these to be displayed in the garden of his main residence, the Sea Palace.
