ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Napoli è uno di quei luoghi che ciascuno crede di conoscere anche se non li ha mai visti. Un immaginario spesso ideologico, fatto di stereotipi, di racconti ossificati, di un'infinita aneddotica. La città si giudica continuamente e viene continuamente giudicata. Sconta il pessimismo indulgente che non di rado gli stessi «nativi» si cuciono addosso e sconta la lontananza culturale, arcigna o paternalistica, di chi la osserva dall'esterno. Di Napoli, Paolo Macry tocca le nervature profonde, ripercorre i segni di un tessuto urbano bimillenario, i comportamenti di lungo periodo della popolazione. Insegue le fratture drammatiche della sua storia, le esperienze politiche che l'hanno segnata, fino alle vicende di tre sindaci-sovrani, Lauro, Bassolino e de Magistris. Ci trasmette la suggestione di una città difficile e mai rassegnata. Napoli, per chi voglia conoscerla, capirla, ritrovarla, continua a essere un mondo. Un mondo da pensare. O forse un modo di pensare.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:

Naples is one of those places that everyone believes to know even if he/she has never seen seen or visitied. An imagery often ideological, made of stereotypes, of ossified stories, of an infinite anecdotal. The city continually judges itself and is continually judged. It pays for the indulgent pessimism that often the "natives" themselves sew on and discount the cultural, grim or paternalistic distance of those who observe it from the outside. In Naples, Paolo Macry touches the deep veins, traces the signs of a two thousand year old urban fabric, the long-term behaviour of the population. He follows the dramatic fractures of its history, the political experiences that have marked it, up to the vicissitudes of three mayors-sovereigns, Lauro, Bassolino and de Magistris. It conveys the suggestion of a difficult and never resigned city. Naples, for those who want to know it, understand it, find it again, continues to be a world. A world to think about. Or maybe a way of thinking.
