Actual life in the Tunnel Borbonico

Some days ago I stepped back in the Tunnel Borbonico to add some more shots. The location is fairy… But this time, if possible, it was even more magic than the last time. In the silent dark, bizarre figures with out-of-dates clothes, clearly coming from the past, were strolling around. Ghosts? Actually the guys of cultural association Nartea, give the spectator, a different view over well known historic locations in Naples. These women and men are really good actors and bring back to present the old life, as it was giving to visitors the real perception about how that place had to be when it was alive. I follow them, a couple of nights laters, to Santa Chiara cloister as well. This time they were performing the life of the monastery during the plague of the late 600 that spreaded over Naples leaving behind thousands of deads.
