Welcome to Naples

Where Naples Coast & Islands - - From The Publisher - Ser­ena Altieri Pub­lisher and Editor- in- chief

as we her­ald in the au­tumn, a time when the city changes it look and says good­bye to the long sum­mer sea­son. Au­tumn is a great time to dis­cover less well- known land­marks sights in Cam­pa­nia, mean­ing that this month we of­fer you a few sug­ges­tions for an out- of- town trip, along the Ve­su­vian stretch, but also to other places, lo­cated in­land, such as San­nio, an evoca­tive hilly area ly­ing north of Naples. Oc­to­ber also marks the clos­ing of Expo 2015, an event which, for the past six months, has seen an in­flux of for­eign tourists to all parts of our coun­try, in­clud­ing Cam­pa­nia. To all those end­ing their trip in Naples af­ter vis­it­ing Italy for Expo 2015, we ded­i­cate the in­cred­i­ble mu­ral painted by Dutch street artist Jorit Agoch, in­au­gu­rated last month in For­cella: an enor­mous face of San Gen­naro, painted on the façade of a build­ing, all of whose glo­ri­ous 15 me­tres can be ad­mired as you de­scend from Spac­canapoli. The pa­tron saint of the city in­vites tourists to cross the dis­trict and al­low them­selves to be cap­ti­vated by the beauty of places, of­ten only as­so­ci­ated with tragic news sto­ries that have noth­ing to do with the in­ner­most fab­ric of a city, the cross­roads of the Mediter­ranean, a land of os­mo­sis and ex­change be­tween dif­fer­ent cul­tures.
