This post will be about some more of my favourite classic Neapolitan songs.
In a previous article I talked about my (personal) top four as far as classic Neapolitan songs are concerned. Here I talk about some more songs that are part of the traditional Neapolitan repertoire and I particularly like.
As you may know, I enjoy dancing, so today’s post will be about a dance that I love a lot: the tammurriata. It’s a folk dance from Campania (the region of Naples), and belongs to the family of the tarantella, the folk dance of southern Italy (I’ll make a post about it too). There are some variations on this kind of dance.
Today I decided to write about something I love: Neapolitan songs. Naples has a very old musical tradition, with songs about all you can feel in love: nostalgia for a lost love, melancholy for a love you can’t have for one reason or the other, the romance of fresh love, passion or desire for the person you love (or you would like to love), jealousy about the person you’re in love with, regrets for the person you’ve hurt, and so on.
It’s been a while since my last post. To make up for it, I’ve decided to show some nice pictures I took of some statues belonging to the so-called Collezione Farnese at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples.
This is my second post on beautiful things to see in Naples; this time I write about something very archaeological. Indeed, the topic today is the archaeological site of Herculaneum (Ercolano in Italian), near Naples, and I have attached the first of two videos based on photos that I took at the site.
This is the first post on my blog; I’m so excited! As you can see on my About page, I’m from Naples. My city is famous, of course (!), for the pizza and for the songs and for the Vesuvius, and also for the many problems that, as in every big city, you can face there.
But there’s way more to it than this, Naples is a city with a long, uninterrupted history dating back to the ancient Greeks, and I want to show you the beautiful monuments and cultural stuff that you can visit there.
