  • The Basilica-with the famous wheel of Exposed-versa really bad conditions: infiltration, debris, barriers. And yet ... is alive, thanks to the community and to the parish priest who does not give up and believe that the revival of the neighborhood walk through one of the Basilica. The Church is a small masterpiece of sacred art in Naples, with the crypt sometimes really nice. Deserves a special wheel, which can only excite visitors knowing deeply his story.

  • To reach the complex dell'annunziata must cross the neighborhood of fork. Once there, as is often the case in Naples, you find yourself facing a living museum system. In addition to the Church and to the structures, which were once a convent and home for foundlings, there are still active, a children's Hospital and gynaecology and a pharmacy for the poor. Now, on art and history of the basilica a good tour guide can summarily inform you. Here, I would like to express to you, on the other hand, the emotion that I won it seeing mothers holding children prowling hasty between halls of the hospital. And I thought of other mothers, who had courage enough misery and degradation, in these same places left, in a wheel of love and luck, the result of a birth. Past and present are United in my heart and it was like all those thousands and thousands of lost children had been found.

  • Catholic Church of Santissima Annunziata is located in the historic centre of Naples, in the quarter of Pendino, but somewhat away from the main tourist routes. The current appearance of the temple acquired already in the 18 century, when the old building was severely damaged by fire. In General, the Church at this place existed since 13 century, built on the site of an orphanage. And Yes fame already in 19-20 centuries, the Church has acquired as a place where horrible very many abandoned children, which was put in a special basket "la ruota", and from there through a special mechanism of these kids end up in the very chapel where they baptized and then packaged in an orphanage. Now the Church is situated in the complex of buildings, where there are also maternity hospital and children's Hospital.

  • Almost falling into desrepair, the church is astonishing to see with a majestic steeple and dome. Located in the heart of Forcella, once a hotspot of local mafia gangland wars, the area is safe to walk and boast a few nice pizzerias to try
