  • Few cities in Italy or the world possess a patrimony as extraordinary as Naples. Our recommended travel itinerary approaches this marvelous city from three different angles, starting with Naples’ scenic side, as beautiful today as it was ages ago, when 16th Century travelers on the Grand Tour arrived seeking beauty and gradeur. Next up is the rich, majestic Naples, capital of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, known for its monuments and squares, its culture and truly popular side streets. Finally, we’ll introduce you to a hidden Naples, which has existed underground for centuries. This may be the most mysterious and spectacular side of Naples, spanning two millennia and conti- nuing to look to the future: from catacombs to under- ground art, with the most beautiful train stations in Europe designed by 14 “archi-stars” and adorned with 200 works of art by over ninety artists.

  • Fu il dottor Ferdinando Zanetti il 23 novembre 1863 ad estrarre la famosa pallottola dal malleolo del Garibaldi “ferito” pochi mesi prima durante l’agguato in Aspromonte. L’episodio segnò definitivamente la vita e la carriera del medico pisano consegnandolo per sempre alla mitologia Garibaldina, portandolo a ricevere riconoscimenti ed attestati di stima da ogni parte del mondo. Tutte quelle medaglie, assieme ad alcune lettere e all’astuccio con i bisturi e gli strumenti utilizzati in occasione di quello storico intervento, sono esposti da giovedì 20 settembre fino al 12 ottobre all’Istituto Italiano di Cultura di New York nell’ambito della mostra “Giuseppe Garibaldi tra Storia e Mito”.
