Next November 15, Insolita Italia is going to leave for a new and fascinating blogtour and, this time, the aim will be really special: discovering Naples form a less ‘touristic’ point of view, in the classic sense of the word.
An unusual travel, perfect for the spirit of the project Insolita Italia, but fascinating and evocative.
An itinerary that is not only territorial, but also and above all social and popular where the photographer Giuseppe di Vaio will go with Insolita Italia.
In fact, the Insolita Italia Naples blogtour will discover those zones of Naples usually outside the common itineraries: Quartieri Spagnoli, Rione Sanità, Scampia and many other zones of the Neapolitan city, often considered ‘scabrous’, will be the exceptional locations of this tour.
With a decisively street view, the blogtour in Naples and Quartieri Spagnoli will give a point of view unknown for many, but much more important to deeply know the heart and the art of this wonderful city.
In fact, during the four days of the Insolita Italia blogtour, we will discover some realities with a strong street soul, without forgetting the ‘unusual’ itineraries and the artistic vocation of these places.
Therefore, we will stop in the mythical Quartieri Spagnoli, where we will admire a famous wall painting dedicated to the king of the Neapolitan football, Diego Armando Maradona, and visit the exhibition World Press Photo 2016 in Palace Pignatelli, but it will not miss a touch of food with the visit of Pintauro, inventor of the famous sfogliatella, one of the most appreciated desserts in the world.
Insolita Italia will stop at the Market Duchessa and Piazza del Mercato, while in Forcella we will make a full immersion in the Street Art of the place with the artworks of Jorit Agoch and Banksy, visit the famous Via dei Tribunali and San Gregorio Armeno, to discover its artisan shops. In the night, at the Theater Bellini, there will be also the meeting with the famous saxophonist James Senese
Once again Street Art, but this time that of Zilda, in Piazza Dante, while in Rione Sanità, we will admire the street art of Bosoletti, and we will visit the Nuovo Teatro Sanità where there will be the meeting with the director Mario Gelardi and his acting company.
Always in Rione Sanità, we will visit the Catacombs of San Gaudioso with Vincenzo Porzio (president coop. La Paranza), we will have lunch at ‘Concettina ai Tre Santi’ and visit the Basilica of Santa Maria della Sanità meeting the priest Don Antonio. In the afternoon, then, we will meet the local community of the Igers Napoli for an Instameet.
Obviously, during the blogtour of Insolita Italia Naples, there will be a stop in Scampia where we will meet the poet Vincenzo Monfregola and a visit to the Vele.
