The Fontanelle Cemetery Tour
The Fontanelle Cemetery (in Neapolitan ‘O campusanto d’ ‘e Funtanelle) is an ancient cemetery of Naples, located in Fontanelle Street, in the Sanità neighbourhood, one of the oldest districts of the city.
His name is due to the presence of natural water sources in remote times. The cemetery hosts the remains of 40,000 people, victims of two big pestilences in 1656 and 1836.
It’s a really special graveyard that reveals the unique, unusual, very close relationship of the Neapolitan people with death, where sacred and profane, magic and religion are held together to create a popular cult: it consists in the adoption and the loving care of a skull (called “capuzzella”), which represents the abandoned soul “pezzentella” (poor unfortunate) in return for protection.
Take part to the accessible tour of the ancient district of Naples called Sanità will be a unique and interesting experience to learn more about the city.
