Why
the Sanità neighborhood?

The Sanità neighborhood stands out for its millennial history, representing the starting point of the history of Naples. The old city, Parthenope, was rebuilt as Neapolis, the new city was founded in the 5th century B.C.E., and the Sanità neighborhood represented the necropolis, located outside the city walls.

Our Vision

The preservation of tangible and intangible heritage: a catalyst for growth and unity within communities, for a future of shared prosperity.
