Hi all! How are you doing? Staying dry with all this rain?!
As always, there are some fab things to do this weekend, but in particular this Sunday, 8th March, it’s International Women’s Day (click here for more posts about it).
The Comune have released a huge program of events for ‘Marzo Donna 2015‘ (Women’s March 2015). Below are some of the events happening this year.
From 2nd – 31st March at the Terme di Agnano, there will be a campaign for prevention, raising awareness among women of the importance of prevention and spa treatments when it comes to health. There will be free specialist advice throughout the month.
On Sunday 8th itself, there will be many events in and around the city, a few of which are:
- Screening of ‘Eros kai Psyché‘: The short-movie about violence against women, between love and myth – at PAN.
- ‘Waiting for ROCK!5 – ‘SHE’S ROCK’‘, a concert/reading at New Around Midnight, in Vomero. A precursor to the 5th edition of the incredibly successful ‘ROCK!’ exhibition at PAN, which will run in June and July 2015.
- ‘Women’s Day at the National Railway Museum‘ – special reduced ticket price for women and extended opening hours – at the National Railway Museum.
- FREE ENTRY for women to all state-run attractions – museums, galleries, monuments, archives etc.
If you don’t fancy that film then on Tuesday 10th March the CLA (Centro Linguistico di Ateneo) is showing ‘August: Osage County‘, in English, as part of their series of movies in original language, at the Cinema Academy Astra.
There are two sporting events on Sunday 8th March: football match – SSC Napoli vs Inter at the Stadio San Paolo, and American football match – Briganti Napoli vs Marines Lazio at the Stadio Comunale di Grumo Nevano.
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
On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th, at the San Carlo Theatre, John Axelrod and David Garrett will be in concert.
As part of the series of concerts at the Villa Floridiana, on Sunday 8th March there will be a concert/recital, ‘Texts of Dante‘.
Also on Sunday 8th March, Verdena are in concert at the Casa della Musica.
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.
