'''Secondigliano''' is a relatively modern suburb in the north of Naples+, in southern Italy+.

Secondigliano lies between San Pietro a Patierno+ and Scampìa+.

The name may derive from a contraction of "secondo" (second) and "miglio" (mile) since the area was at the second milestone on the old road to Capua+. Alternatively, the name may derive from the Roman family name "Secondili." The area was a feudal holding in the Middle Ages+ and not incorporated into the city of Naples until the Fascist period+.

Secondigliano is relatively modern, the result of extensive building in the 1970s and 1980s, yet has enormous social problems similar to those in adjacent communities: high unemployment, truancy and drop-out rate from school, drugs and the pervasiveness of organized crime, the Camorra+. Secondigliano is the site of one of the most important maximum security prisons in Italy.
