Did you miss me? Sorry, it was time for some skiing! I’m back now though! 😀
As always, there are some fab things to do this weekend, including this Sunday (1st March) being #domenicaalmuseo, the monthly day of free entry to all state run museums, archaeological sites etc.
To celebrate the famous American filmmaker, documentarian and theatrical director Frederick Wiseman being in Naples, there will be a series of events and screenings over three days, concluding on Friday 27th February, at the Cinema Astra and the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II.
On Sunday 1st March, there will be a visit to the ruins of Pompeii, from Porta Marina to the theatre district, organised by GAN (Gruppo Archelologico Napoletano). Booking is required, by Friday 27th February.
If you’re looking for something a little more sporty, then on Sunday 1st there is a basketball match of Givova Napoli vs Junior Casale Monferrato at the PalaBarbuto.
Every weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), until 29th March, there are evening guided tours of the Catacombs of San Gennaro. ‘The Lights Inside‘ is a hugely successful guided tour, a journey of lights, sounds and images that rewrites the Catacombs of San Gennaro, seen not only as a burial place, but as a real womb where life takes shape. There will also be the virtual figure of Andrea De Jorio, archaeologist and ethnographer from Procida (born 1769), author of an important guide to the catacombs, who will host the visitors as an ironic and elegant “presence”.
Next Wednesday 4th March (not technically this weekend, but shhh!), it’s time for the monthly Naples International Happy Hour at Barril in Chiaia. Meet new people and old friends from all over the world and brush up your English!!
