Maria Carmen Morese
What is your favourite Neapolitan tradition? Pizza! Pizzerias started opening in Berlin in the 90s and, as youngsters, our favourite sport was looking for a good one. There were no cell phones. We made appointments to meet up by leaving notes on the doorsteps of our friends’ homes or making plans at the University. What is the place ‘ dearest to your heart’ in Naples? Castel dell’Ovo. In particular one corner: when you’re walking along the Lungomare at one point the road curves and you can see both Castel dell’Ovo and Vesuvius. From that angle Vesuvius gives the impression of being enormous, it is silhouetted against the sky, it’s huge. It almost seems to embrace Naples in a hug.
