Cuma, Parthenope, Neapolis, Naples–these are the names that from the days of its foundation by Greek colonists to the present have come to represent one of the most incredible cities in the Mediterranean. A city rich in history, culture and food that has always been one of Italy’s most populous cities. Complex, yet utterly fascinating.
The Italian Embassy Cultural Centre continues its collaboration with Bell’Italia 88 to bring to the Indian public many of our country’s attractions. Starting today, and over the next 6 months, you will be able to virtually tour 6 important cultural cities of Italy. One city will be the focus each month, with a walking tour illuminating its most important monuments, followed by a talk including a visit to a museum or a historical building.
We shall begin with Rome, the capital city, moving on to Sicily in August for a visit to the marvelous Palermo, with its memories of Arab domination and the subsequent enlightened reign of the Swabians. After which there will be Florence, Naples, Venice and Milan in the months to follow.
