Welcome to Naples
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.
