From today, August 1, will again visit the Fontanelle Cemetery.

The cemetery, located in the heart of the "Rione Sanità", is one of the loveliest spots in Naples and currently holds about 40 thousand of the dead remains of between 600 and 800 outbreaks.

A visit to the Fontanelle Cemetery helps to understand the relationship that the Neapolitans have with religion, death, the deceased, fate, lot, fortune.

Until the 70's took care of the faithful "souls pezzentelle" (poor souls): chose a skull, cleaned it and built a small altar with candles and rosaries, began to pray for the soul chosen that, through the dream, manifested.

For many years, the cemetery was the scene of this popular religious rituals and practices made ​​very special.
