Hello! How are you? Tickety boo, I hope!
As always, there are some fab things to do this weekend.
Saturday morning sees the monthly meet-up of the AIWC (American International Women’s Club). This month they have some special speakers – our very own Bonnie Alberts, discussing our NEW BOOK, the ‘Napoli Unplugged Guide to Naples‘, and Anne Pizzorusso, discussing her book ‘Tweeting Da Vinci‘!
On Saturday 14th March, there is a ‘Night time visit to the crater‘ – a special opportunity to visit the crater of the Solfatara. Visitors will also be able to try some Agnanum Falanghina wine and try some fish cooked geothermally, over the steam holes.
There is an incredibly exciting guided tour on Sunday 15th, of the hidden treasures of the Reggia di Caserta. “Cose mai viste” takes visitors on a tour of the vaulted ceilings and hidden parts of the palace.
On Sunday 15th March, there is a special visit to the historical centre of Salerno – from the Verdi Theatre to the Duomo, organised by GAN (Gruppo Archeologico Napoletano).
Every weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), until 29th March, there are evening guided tours of the Catacombs of San Gennaro. ‘The Lights Inside‘ is a hugely successful guided tour, a journey of lights, sounds and images that rewrites the Catacombs of San Gennaro, seen not only as a burial place, but as a real womb where life takes shape. There will also be the virtual figure of Andrea De Jorio, archaeologist and ethnographer from Procida (born 1769), author of an important guide to the catacombs, who will host the visitors as an ironic and elegant “presence”.
MUSIC, DANCE & THEATRE
Every Friday night, at the Casa d’Arte, there is a date with Teatro nel Piatto, an exciting blend of cabaret, singing and theatre of the absurd, seasoned with touches of Mediterranean cuisine, orchestrated by Pasquale Della Monaco, to raise money to help restore and re-open the Villa Ebe and its gardens to the public.
On Sunday 15th and Monday 16th, there is another appointment with ‘Teatro dei Piccoli‘. This week they are putting on ‘Le Avventure di Pinocchio’, so if you have Italian speaking little ones, head to the Mostra d’Oltremare.
From 7th March – 12th April, in the Decumani area of the Centro Storico, there will be the IV Easter Fair. The workshops along Via San Gregorio Armeno will be open, there will be food tasting and folk music.
Every Sunday at the Hippodrome Park of Agnano, there is an antique, craft and flea market.
Every Sunday at the Fiera di Nocera Inferiore, there is the Salone Dell’Usato, a large, covered market, selling crafts, antiques, collectibles and modern antiques/art.
STARTING THIS WEEKEND
There are three exhibitions starting on Saturday 14th: ‘Posillipo, mare… Napule’ by Gennaro Guzzi at the Monumental Complex of San Severo al Pendino – until 26th March; ‘Teatime Cabbage‘ by Bruno Agolini at Fiorillo Arte – until 28th March; ‘La vita è un collage… 50 anni di arte e non solo‘ by Dario Cusani at Castel dell’Ovo – until 12th April.

Have a fantastic weekend! 🙂
