Naples is a unique city. And by virtue of such uniqueness, it blends together its two very diverse souls, that run parallel along the path of history, yet never forgoing its roots; on the contrary, it has reinforced and toughened them, in order to build the future, while tradition and innovation merge and meet in a never-ending and stimulating play on shapes and colors and in a constant research based on the development of the urban setting and its various scenarios.
Throughout the centuries, the city has evolved steadily, maintaining its true spirit: the little back alleys, clothes hanging on lines, its culture and passion, its scents and its romantic vibe: the Rione Sanità, for instance, encompasses the popular spirit of the city, where all the facets of old Naples, full of tradition and history, are still markedly represented. Walking down Via Foria, one reaches the heart of the Rione Sanità, in the midst of Naples’ historic center, Borgo delle Vergini. Here, the Palazzo dello Spagnuolo, a monumental building erected in 1738 and conceived as a space for socialization, thanks to its distinctive double ramp intersecting stairs, embodies the Neapolitan baroque style more than any other palace in the city.
