Articles I had read about this district in Naples were divided in their opinions. One camp said “Don’t go there, it’s dangerous, it’s dirty, it’s the home of the Camorra”. The other side said “Things have changed in this district, the residents have used their pride to reclaim their territory.”
I wanted to see it for myself, and the morning was warm and sunny, so after a fair bit of my eccentric navigation, I found the Rione Sanità.
It was throbbing with people on a sunny morning, looking for the best of the fresh produce on offer.
There were folks gathered just for a chiacchierare (chat). At least one took it all lying down!
There was plenty of fresh washing hung out to dry in the spring sunshine.
And, evidence of another failure at Giovanni’s School of Driving and Hair Removal.
I’ll bring you more about this particular district in Naples. I’ve fallen quite in love with it, to be honest.
Jane I keep forgetting to post a stemma, to feed your obsession. Here you go, one from Sanità.
