A wonderful private theater, the smallest “Museum of typography” of the world, the secret deposits of the National Archaeological Museum, the oven where the first pizza Margherita was cooked in Capodimonte, a skull with “ears”, the sumptuous salon from which Garibaldi greeted the crowd, a community of friars who has lived since 1976 in some old railway carriages, an astonishing staircase hidden in an ancient building, extraordinary old libraries unknown to Neapolitans, vestiges of a former brothel, a Hellenistic hypogeum unique in the world, a customised Vespa from the Second World War, remarkable secret private collections, a Greek watchtower in a theatre, a rare clock that measures the equation of time, the staircase of a building entirely excavated in the tuff, a raft ride 20 meters below Piazza del Plebiscito …
Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, Naples holds many well-hidden treasures that are revealed only to local residents and travellers who know where to step o the beaten track.
An indispensable guide for those who think they are familiar with Naples or who want to discover another side of the city.
