WALK TO THE HISTORIC CENTER OF NAPLES

IT’S WINDY AND IT’S STARTING TO GET COLD. THE SMELL OF THE SEA AND THE SALT AIR ARRIVE UP HERE, INSIDE THE BUILDINGS, AND THEY MINGLE WITH THE INCENSE OF THE CHURCHES, WITH THE SMELL OF THE HOT “SFOGLIATELLE” AND THE COFFEE SMOKE.

IN THIS PLACE THE HEART BECOMES BIGGER, EVERYTHING BECOMES INCREDIBLY FULL AND LIFE SEEMS TO HAVE A DIFFERENT MEANING.

 

WE CONSTANTLY TRY TO KEEP ON STAY IN TOUCH WITH “REALITY”, IN TOUCH WITH THAT WORLD MADE OF PEOPLE THAT CREATE WITH THEIR HEART AND HANDS. WE ARE HERE TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY THAT SURROUNDS US AND TO FIND INSPIRATION FOR SURFACES AND COLORS.

 

CHURCHES, CLOISTERS, BUILDINGS, HIDDEN ROOFTOP GARDENS, ABANDONED COURTYARDS ARE FULL OF HISTORY AND SECRETS. TO TRULY “BREATH” OUR CITY, ADMIRING THE GULF AND EATING PIZZA IS NOT ENOUGH...YOU NEED TO WALK IN THE SILENT CHURCHES TO OBSERVE THE BEAUTY OF THE TIMELESS THINGS, YOU NEED TO PEER INTO THE COURTYARDS TO FIND AN UNEXPECTED GLIMPSE, YOU NEED TO TALK TO PEOPLE THAT LIVE HERE AND THAT EVERYDAY TRY TO DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR THEMSELVES AND THE OTHERS.

 

WE WERE WALKING AND WE CAME ACROSS AN EX-CONVENT BUILT IN THE XVI CENTURY AND ABANDONED IN THE 1980...AN INCREDIBLE PLACE, BREATHTAKING. WE MET THE PEOPLE THAT ARE “FREEING” IT FROM DEGRADATION, THAT EVERYDAY FIND THE TIME TO MAKE THIS BEAUTY SHINE AGAIN.

 

PHOTOS AND WORDS WOULD NEVER BE ENOUGH, BUT WHENEVER YOU WANTWE WILL TAKE YOU TO ADMIRE ALL OF THIS.
