Ospedale delle bambole
It feels like being a child again when you cross the threshold of the Doll Hospital. It was 1899 when Luigino, set designer of the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, began to "treat" and repair rag dolls in the old shop in Via San Biagio dei Librai, 81. Today his son and great-granddaughter Tiziana continue this extraordinary tradition, repairing dolls of all sorts that enthusiasts and collectors bring here from all over the world. Not only are heads repaired, eyes and hair restored, but custom-made clothes are also sewn together in the style of the patient, to give him back to the owner more beautiful than ever, as he once was.

Farmacia degli incurabili
Reopened to the public in 2012 after a long restoration, this historic pharmacy was inaugurated in the 1700s next to the Ospedale degli Incurabili, which arose due to the plague epidemic that infested the city in the 1500s. The pharmacy, made up of a boardroom and a laboratory, today it is visible again just as it was then, with the splendid walnut briar furnishings, the polychrome flasks and vases in original ceramic, the cabinets sculpted by the cabinetmaker Agostino Fucito. On the ceiling, the large painting by Pietro Bardellino entitled Macaone healing a wounded warrior. Attached to the pharmacy, also a museum dedicated to the history of medicine in Naples.

Museo del tesoro di San Gennaro
Seven centuries of donations have made the Museum of the Treasure of San Gennaro one of the richest and most particular collections in the world. Precious objects, ancient documents, silver, jewels and paintings were given as gifts by illustrious men, popes and sovereigns out of devotion to the Saint, forming a huge collection now on public display. Among the objects on display, the famous reliquary for the blood of the Saint which was donated by Charles of Anjou. A journey through the history of Naples accompanied by songs and sound itineraries that make the experience truly evocative. (Via Duomo, 149 – Tel. 081 294980)
Teatro romano di Neapolis
Imagine digging in your cellar and finding nothing less than the remains of an ancient Roman theater. This is what happened to a lady from Naples who, wanting to expand the cellar, opened a passage in a Theater (called Di Neapolis or Dell'Anticaglia) located on one of the city's Decumani and dating back to the 1st century BC. A little further on, an old craftsman discovered that the trapdoor he was hiding under the bed to keep the wine chilled was the only access to the cavea, the corridor under the stage for the actors who had to change. The theatre, surrounded by houses, has now been recovered and opened to the public. (Via Anticaglia)
Cimitero delle Fontanelle
Imagine digging in your cellar and finding nothing less than the remains of an ancient Roman theater. This is what happened to a lady from Naples, who, wanting to expand the cellar, opened a passage in a Theater (called Di Neapolis or Dell'Anticaglia) located on one of the city's Decumani and dating back to the 1st century BC. A little further on, an old craftsman discovered that the trapdoor he was hiding under the bed to keep the wine cool was the only access to the cavea, the corridor under the stage for the actors who had to change. The theatre, surrounded by houses, has now been recovered and opened to the public. (Via Anticaglia)
Purgatorio ad Arco
Linked to the Fontanelle Cemetery is the Museum Complex of Santa Maria delle Anime del Purgatorio in Arco, an absolutely unique reality in the world, entirely dedicated to souls lost in Purgatory in search of relief from the pains of the afterlife. In fact, Purgatorio ad Arco is also called the "Church of the heads of the dead". A place rich in Baroque art but also in legends, such as those linked to the "sweating skull of Donna Concetta", a skull which, unlike all the others, is never covered in dust, but always appears shiny and clean, cause, it is said, of the sweat that covers the soul in Purgatory. (Via Tribunali, 39)
An important restoration is underway by the talented operators of IMC Restauro led by Mariapaola Castellano and Adriana Ciardiello. At the moment they have made the stitching of the gashes and adding scraps of new canvas with the same thickness and texture characteristics of the original to then proceed with a pictorial restoration and reconstruction of the missing areas. The large infiltrations that have damaged the canvas and its decorative parameters will be treated and camouflaged by means of pictorial retouches while the decorations that are missing will be reconstructed to "full effect" so as to restore uniqueness to the entire ceiling.
