Description

The famous Neapolitan comedy “It’s not true but I believe it” of the great Peppino De Filippo wants to be the emblem of this path that will guide you in the fascinating world of Neapolitan superstition, a world created by popular culture and not by ignorance, as many would believe. The alleys of the old town are animated by dozens of sellers of amulets but few know how the curniciello must be to get really effective and you will smile once you discover the origins of its “power”.

Good manners in Naples are a must, so, let us introduce you ‘o munaciello and’ a bella ‘mbriana, which for centuries have been wandering among the palaces and houses of the city, together with numerous other esoteric figures that tell about  Naples, rich of history and myth that intertwine and you can’t distinguish the true from the imagination. And yet, this is the beauty!

We invite you to discover the esoteric and mysterious culture of Naples, strolling through the places of the historic centre and making some obligatory stops to enter in this fascinating world.

Esotericism and mystery have involved, over the centuries, writers and noble men, first of all the Prince of Sansevero, ambiguous character animated by an incontestable curiosity. He left in Neaples a jewel of the Enlightenment, ranging from artistic virtuosity to love for science in a Masonic key: the Palace and the Chapel of Sansevero. In this place, a few steps from the street of the cribs, the famous Veiled Christ is jealously preserved but you can also admire the myriad inventions made by the Prince, like the primordial anatomical machines … to give goose bumps.
