Hello!

Did you all have a good week?  Have you had your “primo bagno” (first swim in the sea)?

First for this weekend is the last Angelic Dissonance event in the series, at the Girolamini, on Sunday 8th June.  Art historians from Cultura Felix will take visitors on a tour to discover the various iconographies of angels present in the Girolamini church, whilst also being treated to the celestial sounds created by Mundu Rua.

Also finishing this weekend is the Pagliacci show at the San Carlo Theatre.  The last two shows are on Friday 6th and Sunday 8th June.  The producer interprets drama through Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Eloize, a poetic meditation on the shifting boundaries between the human soul and the actor’s mask, between acrobats and dancers engaged in circus evolution.

For all you vintage lovers out there, why not pop along to the Barbaro Vintage Market at the Salone Margherita in the Galleria Umberto I.  Your chance to buy items from the shop’s past – 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, all between €5 and €50.  If you like vintage, then check out the vintage shops in Naples.

If you’re feeling crafty and creative, then on Friday 6th June there will be an ETSY ‘Craft Party’.  Bring along an old photo to sew over and decorate, meet like-minded crafters and share ideas.

On Saturday night (7th June), you have the chance to enjoy something a bit different and special – a night time visit to the crater of the Solfatara.  After a 2 hour guided tour, you will be able to try some fish, cooked using steam from the Solfatara and also try some Agnanum Falanghina wine.

For children and young people (and adults!), from Friday 6th – Sunday 8th June, on the Lungomare, there is a really fantastic event – International Interaction for Kids.  An event with music, food from around the world and the chance to try lots of different sports, all with the aim of encouraging multiculturalism and raising awareness of other nationalities.

Starting on Friday 6th June, you will have the chance to see images and photos from the famous Bagno Elena at the Castel dell’Ovo.  The owners have put together a collection of images from their historic archives to share with the public.

Last but not least, Friday 6th June sees the start of Naples Theatre Festival.  There will be shows every night until 22nd June, in various different styles and languages, from plays by Chekhov to dance/choral collaborations.  The festival takes place at a number of locations throughout the city.

Of course there are even more events currently on around Naples, details of which you can find on our events pages.

Have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy the warm weather!
