Dante and Virgil on the Path of Hell

On Sundays of 12 and 26 June 2022 an original and suggestive event will take place on one of the most famous paths of Vesuvius, The Valley of Hell.

A 1000 meters high we will be able to participate in aexcursion on the path enriched by an outdoor theatrical show organized by the Karma Association. It is a new format that sees the fusion between excursion and show.

We point out that the show is reserved for a limited number of participants and is not recommended for those with mobility problems.

The walk between nature and legends

The event will take place together with a expert hiking guide that will immerse us in the nature and beauties of Vesuvius among brooms, lapilli and trees of different types for a walk in the cool and in the shade, away from the heat of the city.

During the walk we will meet curious characters linked to the legends of Vesuvius from the guardian of the volcano to Spartaco and we will know the love story between Vesuvius and Capri. We may also meet some nice ones elves of the woods and everything will end with the representation of Canto V of Dante's Inferno.

Theatrical show on Vesuvius

After about 5 years, as the director Antonio Ruocco comments, this show is re-enacted and every time it has met with great success among the public both because it is well organized and because the location makes it even more suggestive.

The expert guide will be Luigi Guido, while the theatrical performance will be interpreted by Ciro Pellegrino, Ciro Scherma, Maria Claudia Pesapane and Federico Siano.

Recommended clothing and duration of the event

To attend the event it is recommended to wear comfortable shoes for example from gymnastics or trekking, comfortable pants e spare links. It is also recommended that you bring a mosquito repellent. Highly recommended bring a bottle ofwater di minimum 1lt. In fact, being immersed in nature, there are no refreshment points.
