Here are my suggestion for this weekend.


Tonight, Thursday 22nd January, ‘Big Eyes‘ is being shown in ENGLISH at the Cinema Modernissimo, as part of their weekly series of movies in original language.

If that doesn’t interest you, ‘The Book Thief‘, which is one of the CLA’s (Centro Linguistico di Ateneo) series of films in original language, is being shown on Tuesday 27th January at the Cinema Academy Astra.

As part of ‘Napoli and contemporary art: The Museums, the Foundations, the Galleries‘, on Saturday 24th January there is a talk, in Italian, at the Villa Pignatelli (Pignatelli Cortes Museum) – ‘Introduzione alla casa della Casa della fotografia e visita alla mostra ‘Blow Up”.

On Sunday 25th January, you can visit the Duomo – Temple of Augustus in Pozzuoli, with a guided tour organised by GAN (Gruppo Archeologico Napoletano).

If you’re looking for some sport this weekend, then why not go to the Napoli vs. Genoa match at the San Paolo Stadium, on Sunday 25th January.

Something fun for the whole family, and running until 8th February 2015, is the ‘Magnifico Acquatico – Water circus‘ at the Mostra d’Oltremare.  Set in a marvellous, round aquarium filled with more than 50,000 litres of water, the show tells the story of a clown that accidentally falls into water and, not able to swim, reaches the depths of the sea.

Don’t forget that Pino Daniele’s ashes are on display at Castel Nuovo, until 22nd January.


On Tuesday 20th January, ‘Andrea Chénier‘ started at the San Carlo Theatre.  The historical drama, with music by Umberto Giordano, runs until 29th January.  As part of its run, this Saturday 24th January, there is ‘Andrea Chénier‘ for families, again at the San Carlo Theatre.

Tomorrow night, Friday 23rd January, there is a special event at the San Carlo Theatre – ‘San Carlo against violence threatening our freedom‘ – In relation to the painful, bloody events that have shocked France and the world, San Carlo has decided to set up an extra performance of ‘Andrea Chénier’ (in a reduced version) dedicating it to a wider reflection on what has happened, with the contribution of special guests from the world of Culture and Public Institution.

As part of the Alessandro Scarlatti Association 2014/15 Concert Season, on Sunday 25th January at the Castel Sant’Elmo, there is a concert of Mario Brunello and Uri Caine.


Unfortunately the markets seem to be starting again from February, so keep checking back.


Yesterday, Wednesday 21st January, ‘Stelle, an exhibition of works by Lino Fiorito, opened at the Al Blu di Prussia gallery.  The exhibition runs until 14th February 2015.

From Saturday 24th January until 24th February 2016, every Saturday and Sunday, the gothic basement of the San Martino Charterhouse and Museum will open to the public.  This is the first time it will be open and there will also be an exhibition of various sculptures from throughout the ages.

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 this weekend, stay dry, and come back next week for more fun things to do. 🙂
