Estate a Napoli 2014 – Sole, Lune e Talia Festival

If you’re going to the Novecento a Napoli museum this weekend, then why not take part in ‘Advise me an interpretation…….of the Novecento a Napoli museum‘.  The aim is to engage the audience and involve them by getting them to approach the museum’s works by interpreting them in their own way, and they can post a poem, a quote, an image, a link to a piece of music, a video or a photograph on the Facebook page, which represent a subjective point of view.  The project runs until 13th February 2015.

At the MADRE museum, until 22nd September, there is an exhibition of Francis AlĂżs’s ‘REEL-UNREEL’ (Afghan Projects, 2010-14).  The exhibition premieres all the works produced by AlĂżs in Afghanistan, from 2010 to 2014, set in relation to some of the artist’s most famous previous works.

Don’t forget about L’Estate è Oltre – Island of Passions at the Mostra d’Oltremare.  There are lots of wonderful events happening, so why not make the most of the wonderful summer weather and try a massage with Tibetan bells, Free Books in Motion, and much more.  The events are running until 30th September 2014.

Starting on Tuesday 2nd September, and running until 7th September, Napoli Pizza Village returns to the Lungomare.  Your chance to try pizzas from 45 of the most renowned Neapolitan pizzerias, take part in workshops and enjoy the final of the World Pizza Maker Championship.

This Friday, 29th August, is the last chance to benefit from ‘Friday night at the museum‘.  The historical apartments of the Reggia di Caserta (Royal Palace of Caserta), Capodimonte Museum, San Martino Charterhouse and Museum and Castel Sant’Elmo are all open specially until 22.00.

Finally, there’s the last chance to visit the MADRE museum and its exhibitions etc. for free, as part of ‘August at MADRE‘.

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

Have a super dooper weekend.  🙂
