I left Brindisi at 6 in the morning to speak to Naples, briefly visit and address a meeting in the Venezuelan Consulate, important diligence for certain documents required in certain proceedings. Arrives at Naples at 10.30 on a summer day a little warm 30 degrees without any setback. It is the first time that I visit it and since then, as Wikipedia does not review them widely we must know, Naples (in Neapolitan Napule, Italian Napoli) is the city most inhabited of the South of Italy, capital of the region of Campania and of the province of Naples. The administrative city of Naples has something less than 1 million inhabitants that together with its metropolitan area, will rise to 4.4 million. Its inhabitants receive the gentilicio of Neapolitans.
It is located halfway between Mount Vesuvius and other volcanic area, the Phlegrean fields. Naples in the s. XVIII was called the city of the 500 domes but due to earthquakes, fires and 181 bombing in World War II, lost about 60 temples. However, the city still has more churches than any other population in the world with a number of churches exceeding the 400 has a wealth of historical, artistic, cultural and gastronomic, which led Unesco to declare its historic heritage. Greeks, Romans, Normans and Spanish have left their mark on the city. Hand of the past, the city was the political center of the Bourbon Kingdom of the two Sicilies. In the 20th century, first during fascism and in the subsequent reconstruction to World War II was built much of the periphery. In recent decades, Naples has adopted a commercial area with skyscrapers and infrastructures as the TAV to Rome or a network of metro on expansion process. On the other hand, also they being big problems as the crime organized, very present in the life of its inhabitants and which constitutes a brake on economic and social development; or of another nature, telluric forces: the city has suffered major earthquakes and volcanic activity is constantly monitored.
