July 19 we’ll broadcast NAPOLOVE, the fantastic performance of Monica Marioni ! Stay tuned to read all the details! See you soon… from Naples!


NAPOLOVE IS FOR NAPLES.
NAPOLOVE IS AGAINST NO ONE.
NAPOLOVE IS YOUTH.
NAPOLOVE HAS NO AGE. NAPOLOVE IS INNOCENT.
NAPOLOVE IS POWERFUL. 
NAPOLOVE HAS NO WORDS
NAPOLOVE SAYS LOVE
NAPOLOVE COMES FROM THE PAST.
NAPOLOVE IS THE FUTURE.
NAPOLOVE is a performative character created by the
Italian artist Monica Marioni.

The character allows her to represent the Parthenopean
universe as seen, or rather "heard", by an artist born and
raised in northern Italy, who arrives in Naples on the occasion of Artperformingfestival 2nd edition, but actually recalled in town by her love for it.
NAPOLOVE is built and acts in close relationship with
several Neapolitan topoi, reinterpreted and strongly
updated in a surreal key.
The character's appearance is precisely encoded as a
teatre mask, strictly defined in acts and appareance to
become part a completely new
Commedia dell'Arte.
NAPOLOVE lives the city as an alien fallen on the earth,
lost and astonished by the city and its inhabitants. His look is fixed in the unexpressive white mask and large
rounded glasses, dresses vary along a range of
composite and colorful outfits that tell, through the color
and juxtaposition of styles, the Neapolitan melting pot
style.
