PASSIONS With Anna you go deep into Neapolitan territory history, in its mythos and legends sharing her huge passion for art and culture, to enjoy the essay of some introspection into the meaning of life. You talk of saints, princesses, and mysteries, following the hints of the treasure hunt organized in the castle.

WE WARMLY WELCOME Teens and adults, single and families interested in knowing better Naples history and who desire to reconnect the life stories of important personalities who lived in the ancient Castel dell’Ovo.

THE STORY The Borgo Marinaro’s inhabitants are talking about a mysterious presence hanging around every night inside Castel dell’Ovo and they even report it to the authorities. In the castle, some enigmatic messages have been found. Maria Sofia, as the directress of the National public library of Napoli, is in charge to find a solution, but she can’t really understand what’s happening there. So she decides to call esteemed international scientists to discover the arcane and calm down the worried people.

You too, as a member of the experts' delegation elected by your State, are invited to come to Naples: the appointment is near the entrance of Castel dell’Ovo, tomorrow in the late afternoon

Anna, in the role of Maria Sofia, accompanies you through this adventure and mystery. Your treasure hunt will start from a research on ancient books, to recall the legends and mysteries of princesses and holy women who lived in the old castle through the centuries. And right there, inside the castle, you will go at nightfall, to bring light to its hidden secrets, gathering all the messages left by the "mysterious presence" who haunts that place.
