The Little Neapolitan theatre
With washing hanging from windows, Vespa horns blaring in the air and the hustle and bustle of the street, welcome to Naples, an open air theatre which plays host to as many comedies as tragedies. Full of paradoxes, the city is melting pot of the best and the worst of human nature; beauty, ugliness, splendour, misery. It is as if the city is in constant flux, as if it hesitates between light and darkness. But it’s the Neapolitans who make Naples; without them, it wouldn’t be the same city. Playful, inventive and comedians at heart, they have learnt how to tame this metropolis and to simply take life as it comes. Despite all the problems, they seem to know the secret of living a happy life. It’s a secret that they keep as they take us for a tour of this most incredible and paradoxical of cities.
