Dive into the fascinating world of Neapolitan superstition, created by popular culture and not by ignorance, as many would believe.
Learn about the "curniciello" and the origins of its power; get to know the history of 'o munaciello and' a bella 'mbriana, which for centuries have been wandering among the palaces and houses of the city, together with numerous other esoteric figures; understand how in Naples history and myth intertwine and how thin the line of separation between truth and imagination can be.
Stroll through the historic center and make some obligatory stops to enter this fascinating world. Esotericism and mystery have involved, over the centuries writers and noblemen, including the Prince of San Severo, ambiguous character animated by an incontestable curiosity. He left in Neaples a jewel of the Enlightenment, the Palace and the Chapel of San Severo. In this place, a few steps from the street of the cribs, the famous Veiled Christ is jealously preserved together with the myriad of inventions made by the prince, like primordial anatomical machines.
