My perfect day
Maria Carmen Morese Interview with the director of the Goethe Institut in Naples
However, in principle, I like to dine at home using all the delicious ingredients that can be found here.
Your favourite museum? The Archaeological Museum but also Capodimonte. In fact, I believe that you can’t really understand Naples unless you visit Capodimonte. Let’s talk about shopping, where do you like to spend your money and what do you like to buy? Groceries! I often give food items as gifts, I’m always on the lookout for specialty foods. In via Cisterna dell’Olio there’s a Sardinian shop that sells delicious cheeses and, right next door there’s a bar where I stop for an aperitivo. They offer a great selection of cheeses. To my mind there’s nothing better than Sardinian cheese acccompanied by a Neapolitan aperitif. You were born in Pompeii, on the slopes of Vesuvius, what kind of impact does the presence of the Volcano have on Neapolitans? An enormous impact. It’s as if there were a sort of particular underground magnetism. It evokes a strong sense of emotion. You can almost feel the underground energy of the volcano being transmitted to the inhabitants of the city.
