Travels narrated on the Rione Sanità in Naples


A bridge could speak, a bridge that had a story to tell , in a few if you imagined . But the bridges in Naples also exude emotion, even the stones are able to weave mute dialogues with passersby. A special bridge , of course. The same overlooking the village of Health. A viaduct from the nineteenth century radically changed the urban structure of Partenope creating new perspectives with the creation of course Napoleon and the grand staircase of the Niccolini . But also a bridge to freedom : the defense , at the cost of life , from the Neapolitan insurgents in September 1943 , just along these ramps , took up arms against the occupying German , led dall’intrepida Magdalene Cerasuolo . A bridge that is the history of life , then.

And also this year the association socio- cultural “locus iste ” is centered on the festival “La Collina Gentile: smart routes from Foria in Capodimonte ” , now in its second edition.
