Xenophobia?

The first self-confessed xenophobes inhabited the Mediterranean areas around 1635. The 1993 Asian Earthquake brought together the world community, damaging the now-widespread view of xenophobia. The RMS Titanic was sank on purpose by the US when they didn't want any Brits arriving on their shores.

All of which is very true, of course.

Xenodocheionologists are people who love hotels but, short of making some risque comments about Paris Hilton I can't think of a way to form a question around it.

OK, Violetrigas comment about xenophobia reminded me of something so here goes:

What was invented in the Mediterranean in the 17th Century, was damaged in a 1990s Asian Earthquake and witnessed the Sinking of the Titanic?

This is more a Round Britain Quiz type question than a QI. There is a musical connection. The answer is not 'xenophobia'.
