Naples

Naples... Its monuments, its colors,...its warmth “Napoli lies in a great place, I will not say only at God's Sun but in the magnificence of the world and it is not only the garden of Europe for the astonished traveler's eyes, but it is also one of those radiant centers, around which gravitates civilization, progress, politics and art, for the historian, the poet, and the philosopher”. The opinion, given by Alexandre Dumas in the 19th Century, keeps unaltered – still today – its capacity to express the qualities of the ancient Parthenope. Several are the monuments and the buildings, which are worth attention. Among these: Castel dell’Ovo, the Maschio Angioino, Castel Sant’Elmo, the Palazzo Reale (and the Theatre San Carlo), the Cloister of Santa Chiara, the Museum of San Martino, The Museum and The National Galleries of Capodimonte and the National Archaeological Museum. Particularly rich is, moreover, the artistic and architectonic religious heritage: for example the Duomo (Cathedral), the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, in Piazza Plebiscito, and the church of San Domenico Maggiore and that of Gesù, both close to the University. Wealthy is also the esoteric heritage which is believed to be partly preserved at Cappella dei Principi di Sansevero (Sansevero Chapel) or near the tomb of Virgil. Naples is also this: a place – perhaps the only one in the world – where the sacred doesn’t jar with the profane; past is counterpart for "free life" wish; wisdom complements the chaos. And yet this so many apparent contradictions do not undermine a picture of absolute harmony. On the contrary, they enhance the charm of the ancient capital and the joviality of its inhabitants. It is not a mistake the fact that the cult of cheerfulness finds tangible signs in the affection for the old Pulcinella and for the most recent Totò. Indeed, Naples is all this and more.
