Some evenings unwrap like the best parcels – one surprise at a time. This was one of those evenings.
We were part of another Curiosity Tour of Naples. I’d signed us up for two reasons – the first was to visit the old red tower I’d seen above Naples so often; and the second was to show our visiting artists the Museo di Capodimonte.
The tower is part of our lives here in Naples. We see it on every trip along the tangenziale from the airport at Capodichino. It stands tall and mysterious above the dark green of the bosco di Capodimonte … an exotic exclamation mark surrounded by a city built of blocks.
