Real places become virtual

For this edition of the May of Monuments, the places that are usually the settings of the many events will not disappear, but will in any case be protagonists, strictly without audience. Between churches, cloisters, museums, historical theaters and monuments we can see the Certosa di San Martino Museum, the Ancient Roman Theater at Anticaglia, the Convent of San Domenico Maggiore, the Church of San Severo al Pendino in via Duomo, theAstronomical Observatory of Capodimonte, the Fontanelle Cemetery, the Maschio Angioino, the Railway Museum of Pietrarsa and many others.

In the impossibility of carrying out the usual guided tours, shows and concerts, the artists will perform in those places, broadcasting their performances online.
