Maybe you have not noticed that the tricky “Monaciello” hid away all our amulets and now Napoli is collapsing in misfortune. Yesterday, with the inhabitants of Spaccanapoli area, we asked for help to the directress of Le Belle Arti Academy in order to make an even more powerful talisman. The directress told us that she knows what to do and scheduled an appointment with us for tomorrow morning at dawn; we meet in the bar called “La Tana dell’Arte” in front of the Academy.
Please, be on time as we shall not wait for late arrivals, Ah, I almost forgot, bring some salt with you!
With Luisa, acting as the directress of Le Belle Arti Academy, you can go deep in the emotional side of Napoli connected to the most ancient traditions and learn the oldest tales of Naples traditions against misfortune. Going through the most hidden alleys, you are
introduced to the sculptural art of the city. In the laboratory of a real and world famous Neapolitan artist you will get the “Pulcicorno”, your original personal amulet with which you can relive the ancestral spells against misfortune . When back home…. you will have so much to tell about!
