On the 23rd of July, I was in London for a “special evening devoted to Naples” at the Italian Cultural Institute. Penny and I were part of a panel discussion about Naples and we got to talk about the “love affair” we have with Napoli and more importantly, we got to promote the city we both came to love. Our moderator for the evening was the delightful and

Mayor de Magistris and Prof. Stanislao Pugliese

It was a very special night at the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute of the City University of New York.  Was it because of the energy that the mayor of Naples, Luigi de Magistris brought across the Atlantic, along the 41st parallel, straight to the Big Apple? Probably so, as both cities are electric, eccentric, controversial, full of things you either love or

ARPAC’s (the regional (Campania) agency for Environmental Protection) results are out and with the exception of the port areas, most of Naples coastline has been deemed safe for bathing with many areas achieving a ranking of “excellent”, the highest rating on a four rung scale - poor, fair, good,

I completely missed writing the post last month and this month, I almost missed that too. Didn’t I come here to live “la dolce vita”??? You know what they say, no matter where you go, there you are. And as it would happen, I packed my workaholic self in the suitcase when I moved here and although it didn't get unpacked right away, every year since, more and

April was such an incredibly busy month, I hardly know where to start. The beginning of the month brought us to Sorrento where we spent Easter weekend at one of our favourite hotels, the Grand Hotel de la Ville. Located just on the outskirts of town, it is a relaxing oasis set away from the fray, but close enough to enjoy all of the action. Arriving there on

On 28th July 2013, tragedy struck.  A coach carrying pilgrims from Pozzuoli, coming back from a trip, flew off a viaduct, killing 40 people and leaving only 8 survivors. To remember the victims of the tragedy, local artist Lello Lopez created 'La Scala', a huge spiral structure, which could be seen to resemble DNA.  The artist said "The ascents and therefore the

My niece has been working on a book lately. The book features brightly colored illustrations and pithy passages on the meaning of Easter. It begins with the rousing rhetorical declaration, “Easter is………” and continues with a compelling ode to “Chocolate Eggs!” My niece, Caterina is five, and like many of her peers, she is obsessed with the giant chocolate

As the old saying goes, March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. In between there was lots of rain and wind and many cold, damp days, but March also gave us a few beautiful, sunny days to wander the city and breath in its splendour. Marzo è Pazzo – March is Crazy or so they say, let's just hope April brings back the sanity and more importantly, the
