Bigger than life bras and undies are playing a supporting role in the restoration of some of Naples most precious monuments. Yes, you heard that right. Bras and undies. Okay “the cover story” is that they’re swimsuits, but who can tell the difference these days anyway.

Capua Amphitheatre

Situated sixteen miles north of Naples within the fertile plains of the Caserta province, Capua dates back to at least the 7th century B.C. when Etruscans and Euboean Greeks settled the area. Today, the ancient city lies mostly underneath the modern town of Santa Maria Capua Vetere.

The amphitheater is easy to find at the center of Capua. It’s the second largest in Italy next to the coliseum in Rome. The amphitheater is open so visitors can roam the vaulted corridors, the gladiator field, and the underground tunnels where once elaborate stage machinery as well as caged animals were kept.

Girolamini Monumental Complex

Crossing Via Duomo into the heart of Centro Storico along Via dei Tribunali, a massive church on the right commands your attention. Its principal facade, the work of Ferdinando Fuga, sits at the far end of a small piazza, Piazza dei Girolamini. You may never see the doors to this Florentine style church open and the piazza is not much to look at, but linger here a minute or two and you’ll eventually notice the Banksy (British graffiti artist) on a wall to the right of the church.

Back around the corner on Via Duomo and across the street from the Cathedral, you’ll find the entrance to the Girolamini Monumental Complex designed by the Florentine architect Giovanni Antonio Dosio.
