See Naples through its history – Music, Literature and Wine

The Cities of Naples and Ercolano together with the Archeological Museum are presenting a view of Naples and the surrounding area with an exposition of works by local authors, music and wines produced in the region. Fuoco Vitale, of Life-giving Fire, will be open to the public from September 22 through September 30, 2006 at CIVES in Ercolano, via IV Novembre. The fair is spread over 4,000 sq. ft. and is divided into the three primary areas of Literature, Music and Wine.

The area around Naples is rich in culture and folklore. Naples is passion to the extremes. It expresses great appreciation for the arts and for the land. Fuoco Vitale is an attempt to visualize this passion using historic events and products. The show is intended to represent the magma flowing from Vesuvio, the active Volcano on the gulf of Naples, its life-giving power and capacity of destruction.

This is a unique opportunity to understand local culture, to live their experiences and to be, if only for a short time, Napolitano.

I wanna go! I've seen and been on Mt Etna, and would like to visit other Italian volcano's. So this show would be of great interest to me!

Dianne I think you will like Vesuvio. Like Etna it has a park around it and can be a fantastic couple of days. Hopefully it will remain dormante during your visit but with Vesuvio you never know.

CQ I think it is great that you had the opportunity to visit Ercolano. In every place we are and with all the people we know there are opportunities to learn and grow, if we just take the time to notice.
