The latest issue of ReadingItaly, the blog of the Reading University postgraduate forum in Italian Studies, is devoted to Naples.cropped-logoscritte-univ-01 It contains a discussion of Naples as a ‘rainbow city’ (Lorenza Gianfrancesco, RHUL, who has a particular interest in academies, printing and publishing) alongide a piece on Naples as an ‘ordinary city ‘ (Nick Dines, Roma 3, whose recent book on Naples is entitled Tuff City). Stefano Bragato (Reading) relives the progressive rock scene in the city in the 1970s – an interesting discussion to set beside Mathias Stevenson’s recent post on Italian reggae and its local roots. And Thomas Denman (Reading), studying early 17th century Neapolitan art and involved in the Italian academies project described in an earlier post, signals several recent books, conferences and workshops devoted to aspects of early modern Naples.
