No research or interpretation of the genius loci can compete with the place itself: Naples, but not only Naples…’the central station, crossroads of crossroads’.

This place enters the space strongly, inducing us to think of it as a suspended, light, reassuring shell, ‘like in our memories’, from which we can participate in the theater of the city in a spontaneous and serene way.

In these environments we desired a constant rhythm, with the only suspense of feeling everywhere the guests of a delicate presence, ‘a host who is there but not there’, and with the intention of leaving the unexpected smell of a place much more intimate than it appears.
