that's how Gianni Simioli presented the event:

San Gennaro 2013. Three days. Three days of celebration that I have repeatedly defined as “sentimental-popular”. Two words that we should go back to using more and that are the key to getting out of the darkness these days. This festival is the symbol of a city that, as always, knows how to be reborn relying on its history and traditions but always projected towards the contemporary. Sentiment and people. A mix that surprises every time. Like the yellow-faced Miracle, miracle that every Neapolitan performs every day devoted to his Patron Saint as well as to his city.
Thanks to the merchants of Via Duomo and their stubbornness. Thanks to the artists who have accepted to be there.
Thanks to Jesce Sole. Thanks to the Curia and… thanks San Gennà.
