So many great things happening this weekend! I’m also testing out a new formula for these posts.  Let me know what you think. 🙂


Tonight, Thursday 16th October, ‘The Two Faces of January‘ is being shown in ENGLISH at the Cinema Modernissimo, as part of their weekly series of movies in original language.

Also tonight, Thursday 16th October, San Carlo Theatre presents Artecinema Festival.  Three screenings of film based on contemporary art.

Friday 17th October, a unique chance to go on a guided tour, based around food.  ‘Non solo Grand Gourmet‘ is a calendar of exclusive appointments – from lunches and dinners to artistic moments – in exceptional locations amongst Irpinia and Cilento, an ideal journey of discovery of the excellent gastronomy of Campania.

If you are looking for a concert for this weekend, then why not head to the Teatro Palapartenope for the Dear Jack concert – Saturday 18th October.

If you prefer something a little more classical, then look no further than the San Carlo Theatre, where on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th October there is the official opening of the San Carlo concert season, with Gabriele Ferro conducting.

However, if you’re more of a sporty type, then why not go and support Napoli Basket (Givova Napoli) in their basketball match against Basket Veroli – Sunday 19th October at the PalaBarbuto.

Finishing on Sunday 19th October, Stefan Anton Reck’s exhibition, ‘Painting. Sound Gesture Sign‘, at PAN.  Famous as a composer, Stefan Anton Reck is less well-known as an artist, but this exhibition shows off his artistic side.

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

Enjoy whatever you get up to, and I look forward to hearing all about it! 🙂
