The venue

 

 

Naples is Italy’s third-largest city, one of its oldest, most artistic and most delicious. Naples’ historic centre is a Unesco World Heritage Site, its archaeological treasures are among the world’s most impressive. Wonderfully rich in vainglorious palaces, castles and churches.
Then there’s the food. Blessed with rich volcanic soils, a bountiful sea, and centuries of culinary know-how, the Naples region is one of Italy’s epicurean heavyweights, serving up the country’s best pizza, pasta and coffee, and many of its most celebrated seafood dishes, street snacks and sweet treats. Certainly, Naples’ urban sprawl can feel anarchic, tattered and unloved. But look beyond the grime and graffiti and you will uncover a city of breathtaking frescoes, sculptures and panoramas, of unexpected elegance, of spontaneous conversations and profound humanity. Welcome to Italy’s most unlikely masterpiece.
