We are a cultural association with the main purpose of promoting Canzone Napoletana as a touristic-cultural attraction for Naples. The team is entirely composed by experts or enthusiasts who have put themselves on the line with their skills for the realization of the projects of the Association.
The common vision of the group is the conception of an European Naples, not ignoring its history and inestimable culture. This goal can be realized through plans in accordance to a modern concept of a sustainable tourism.
The phenomenon Canzone Napoletana is a strong identifying resource and a material and immaterial cultural heritage, able to generate value in the territory.
We strongly believe in the necessity of promoting the musical tourism in Naples: the identifying resources, that are the typical elements of material and immaterial culture of a place, may give advantages to the local community and satisfy the visitors’ needs. We think that today the tourists always more look for cultural, artistic, social values, landscape and wine and food linked to a specific location, through authentic experiences with inhabitants and with peculiar characteristics.
Among the founders of the project are Mimmo Matania, cultural manager and musicologist, and the pianist Pasquale Cirillo. The artistic cast is made up of professional musicians and singers who lend their respective skills to the realization of Napulitanata’s projects. The working group is completed with a group of professionals who support the project activities from a communicative and administrative point of view.
