Naples is now a must-see city, diverse and unique in its greatness, intensity and passion of its music, but not only, mingles high-brow culture with the popular, the sacred with the profane, and the joyful with the melancholic. Elena Ferrante's "My Brilliant Friend" novel, now on HBO as well the gritty Gomorrah tv series, have brought Naples to be known to the American younger generations.
