Starting tomorrow tonight (Friday 27th June), there will be an exhibition of watercolour paintings by Alessio Schiattarella and Riccardo Zagaria at Gino Ramaglia, Artisti in vetrina.  The artists take inspiration from their surroundings, and also other famous pieces of art.

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June at the San Carlo Theatre, Marc Albrecht conducts works by Schreker, Stravinsky and Strauss.

If you’re interested in inventions and science, then you need to head to the Naples Science Centre (CittĂ  della Scienza) before Monday 30th June, for ‘Hall of Fame’, a travelling exhibition which presents seven inventors from seven Europen countries whose inventions changed our lives. The event tells the stories, characterized by great ideas, of seven scientists and engineers – Anne Lambrechts, Benedetto Vigna, Josef Bill, Jan Topholm, Jason Chin, Farouk Tedjar and Jaap Haartsen.

Last, but not least, on Saturday 28th June from 15:00, starting in Piazza Dante, there is the Mediterranean Pride of Naples.  A celebration to promote equal rights and to help improve people’s attitude towards lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual etc. people.

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

Enjoy your weekend, whatever you get up to and I’ll be back next week. 🙂
