Capodimonte meets the Health

It will be a special exhibition dedicated to popular districts of the city of Naples and in particular to the famous Rione Sanità, which will be shown through painted and sculpted children and boys by the artist Paolo La Motta, who lives and works in the neighborhood itself.

An evocative route, which thanks to the skill of La Motta, will make you experience the emotions and sensations of those children firsthand, fear, hope, anguish, but also dreams and la lightheartedness of a childhood abandoned too soon.

Among the many faces present at the exhibition, we remember that of Genny Cesarano, innocent victim of the Camorra, to which La Motta dedicated the Genny polyptych made from four points of view, the face, the neck and the two profiles, concluding the work in an all-round terracotta.
