Sacred and profane mesh into each other in Naples’s art scene. Saints and buffoons, the divine and the mundane blend and find a balance in artistic production. The narration of this contrast will take place in the heart of Naples, by coupling a guided tour of the Cathedral and of the treasure of San Gennaro with works of street art and visits to workshops of artists and artisans. The San Gennaro Museum has been established thanks to donations to the city’s patron saint on behalf of royals as well as populace. Contemporary artists and artisans reinterpret the suggestive force of San Gennaro, of Mount Vesuvius, and of the “Neapolitan-ness” with an absolutely original secular devotion. In conclusion, the graffiti depicting San Gennaro and Caravaggio have become famous worldwide. For those who wish to, the day will finish with lunch or dinner in a traditional pizzeria (on a fixed-price basis).
