Pezzentelle souls

As usual every year, the special and unmissable appointment with the May of Monuments in Naples. The exhibition was created with the aim of enhancing and enhancing the culture and art of one of the most beautiful cities in Italy.

This purpose is achieved through a program full of events, with guided tours, exhibitions and events in the various places of Naples, just to let everyone know its history and its incredible beauty.

For the 2022 edition of the Maggio dei Monumenti has been organized for Saturday May 7 at 11:30, a special preview that will take place in Secondigliano.

The guided tour of the Church and Crypt of SS. Cosma and Damiano

At 11:30 am with an exceptional guide, a special guided tour will start that will lead guests to discover the history of Church and Crypt of SS. Cosma and Damiano, in Secondigliano, one of the most important and evocative places of the cult of the souls in Purgatory, also known as the cult of pezzentelle souls.

In the hypogeum of this church there was the Wedding shoes, that is, a skull with a white dress, to which the citizens asked for help to favor marriages, and then one more Medical, with a white coat, which was invoked for health and many other figures like the Monk, the Marshal and other. To date, all these figures are no longer visible because they were collected inside a large display case.

To welcome you there will be Francesca Amirante and Raffaele Siciliano of the CosDam ODV Association, a reality that was created to bring together all the young people of the neighborhood who care about the protection and conservation of the complex.
