The land, the rivers, the sea: a never ending game, a bustle, an up and down, almost a duel. Water, earth, air, fire, playing an eternal game, creating shapes, brightness, reverbs, echoes, caves, creeks, precious for mermaids, nymphs, sibyls, oracles, mythological figures. Opici, Osci, the Samnites, Enotri, legendary Cimmerians the ancient populations of the region. They had to face the Etruscans and the Greeks, and then live with them, from the VIII century. Ac, then Rome unified them in the Campania region. With the first colonies and the Greek polis the roots of classicism and the organization of civil life got stronger. Architecture and philosophy schools prospered in the area together with the settlement of new cities (Neapolis, Naples) with their rules, monuments and temples of refined beauty appreciated by different population of the various dominations: the the “docta parthenope” by Martial and the “otiosa Neapolis” by Horace. . Frederick II, the emperor Svevo, in 1224, founded the first laical University, result of a new idea: the modern state! The University Federico II, almost confirming a historical vocation of the city, became a magnet for cultural education in the whole empire.
The court of Frederick becomes a meeting place, almost a synthesis among Greek, Latin, Arabic, Jewish cultures. This synthesis will reveal itself later in the “messages hidden in the stone, in the musical notes, in the works of art, in the writings”: the esoteric culture. A significant track: the esoteric triangle, the center of energy between the convent of San Domenico, the statue of Nilo – the Palazzo Di Sangro (where the Prince of Sansevero used to live, a mathematician, philosopher, alchemist, Templar, important representative of esoteric culture in Europe). Underground tunnels linked those three places: the “connection as well as symbolic was also real.”
“The music was born in Naples,” informs us Riccardo Muti. From 500 in Naples the “Conservatori” had the rule of saving, preserving orphans or poor children and to train them to start a profession. For the first time, we experience that, through the music, you can retrieve talents that otherwise would remain unexpressed. The “Conservatori” become a magnet for musicians, instrumentalists and singers that will spread the passion and music culture throughout Europe. Naples becomes a focus for the European educated upper classes: it started to grow a curiosity to approach the special atmosphere of the city, to visit it, to know it, until it become a must in the tradition of the “Grand Tour”.
