Around Naples in English  © by Jeff Matthews & napoli.com
This part of Napoli.com is NOT a translation of anything you may read on the Napoli.com main page, nor is it related to the English-language items under "Cultural Routes" in the side-bar on the left of your screen. This is my own English-language page about Naples - Italy. There are five parts, linked below, of Around Napoli in English. The first is my "personal encyclopedia," approximately 400 entries, about Naples and the area. It is purposely an idiosyncratic, eclectic presentation of my own observations on the general culture of Naples. The link (below) will take you to an alphabetical index. Second, a collection of maps. Third, a selection of articles by Jeanne Manfredi. Fourth, "Through the Eyes of..., historical items by authors who have written about Naples. Fifth, recent items about Naples today. I shall try to add to that section at the rate of one or two items a week.I am responsible for the contents of Around Napoli in English, and the views expressed are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of napoli.com. I welcome your comments. Here, then, is Around Napoli in English:

1.  Encyclopedia  --  2.  Map collection  --  3.  Articles by Jeanne Manfredi
4.  "Through the Eyes of..."  --  5.  New articles (start below)
