Napoli Est

While in Napoli I met Danilo Capasso who amongst other things is working with a group of people on rehabilitating a previously industrial area in East Naples. Their group is called N.EST and their idea is to start infiltrating the area with art rather than with commercial development. It's an interesting approach because we have seen so many of these areas around the world that go from "the new place to be" to "everybody is moving to" to "it used to be much cooler" to "I never go there anymore". Check out East Napoli while it's really hot
