Here are my picks of the fun things going on in the Naples area this weekend.


Tonight, Thursday 20th November, ‘Interstellar‘ is being shown in ENGLISH at the Cinema Modernissimo, as part of their weekly series of movies in original language.

Running from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd November is the ‘Festival of the tree‘, at the Botanical Gardens.  A celebration of the urban wildlife, to raise awareness of the importance of trees and plants in the city.

Also from Friday to Sunday, and also at the Botanical Gardens, is the ‘Corso di acquerello naturalistico e “en plein air”, run by the very talented artist Lorenzo Dotti.

On Sunday 23rd November, GAN (Gruppo Archeologico Napoletano) are running a guided tour of the Archaeological Museum of Antica Calatia in Maddaloni.

If you fancy some football, then there’s Napoli vs. Cagliari at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday 23rd November.

Saturday seemingly being concert night this week, there is also the inaugural concert of the ‘Festival Internazionale di Musica Antica’, ‘La Iole‘, at the Palazzo Zevallos.


The Naples Antiques Market is on this Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd November.  Whether buying or just browsing, the market’s eclectic assortment of antiques and junk will keep you occupied for hours and will make for a great weekend jaunt.  The market takes place on the Lungomare.

The Campagna Amica Coldiretti Market will be held on Saturday 22nd (at Piazza S. Di Giacomo in Posillipo) and Sunday 23rd November (at Piazza San Vitale in Naples and Viale Campi Flegrei in Bagnoli).  You’ll find local products and healthy and affordable food with low environmental impact: fresh fruits and vegetables, wines, olive oil and vinegars, cheeses, honey, salumi, bread and bakery products, and plants and flowers.

Sunday 23rd November, the Mercato del Contadino, a market of all the best local produce, is being held in the pedestrian area of Via Diaz.


Starting on Saturday 22nd November, and running until 9th March 2015, is the Lucio Amelio exhibition at MADRE, an exhibition dedicated to one of the indisputable protagonists of the history of contemporary art on the anniversary of his death.

There are also two exhibitions starting on Saturday 22nd November at the Alfonso Artiaco Gallery, both running until 10th January 2015.  One exhibition is of the works of Carlo Alfano and the other is the Marcobaleno’ exhibition of Marco Neri.

Also ending tomorrow, Friday 21st November, is ‘S21‘, the photography exhibition of Roberto Arcangeli at PAN.  The exhibition contains images of the S21 extermination camp in Cambodia, portraying it in the way it should be, not in a tourist memento.

Finishing on Sunday 23rd November is ‘‘O Curt‘, a festival of short films at the Institut Français of Naples.

Monday 24th November sees the last day of ‘I’Mperfect – individuality and imperfection on show’, an exhibition as a story about design, by Monica Massera at PAN.
