I walk through the curtain that separates, but –at the same time- links, the genuine neighbourhood of San Lorenzo from Palazzo Donnaregina, the 19th-century building that is home to the contemporary art museum of Naples. It’s a garish curtain, which without a big preamble leads into a visionary space designed by Daniel Buren. The French artist has, in fact, transformed the rigid architectural lines of this elegant palace into a wonderland of colourful panels, mirrors and disorientating perspectives that create infinite reflections, deconstructing and inverting the usual look of the entrance to the museum.
Whenever I have the tickle for travelling and experiencing something different, but no time to get on an actual trip, I always opt for Naples.
My high-school was so close to the main station, that it would have been a huge waste to never using a trip to the town of food, sea and amazing people. (I do realize it may sound as a cliché but.. ehy, have you ever met an annoying Neapolitan?).
