There are places that you go to, and once is enough. And then there is Napoli. We journey through one of the biggest of jukeboxes in the world, a treasure chest of songs, from 1200 to now, conjuring distant stories and myths that still live, a repertoire that speaks of love, sex, jealousy, crime, poverty, irony, superstition, and social protest. Each song is a small screenplay, an emotional postcard sent from a city by the forces driving it.
Passione is a musical adventure that comes directly out of the people, the walls that surround them, and the land they inhabit.
