"Forcella is stabbed into the deepest guts of Naples. It's the oldest and small neighbourhood of the city, known as the home to the most violent and fierce mafia gangs. In Forcella time is suspended, frozen in a undefined era that holds the breath from postwar to the Eighties; modernity and globalisation didn’t make their way through the daily life of common peolple. Forgotten by the institutions, abandoned to the casualness, cursed forever by the 1980's earthquake, Focella is also a place where citizens follow ancient rites of friendship and politeness. Forcella seems like the archetype of the whole city of Naples. We started from this area to continue our exploration to other districts we felt had a similar atmosphere, like the Quartieri Spagnoli, Sanità, and the city beaches of the Caracciolo broad walk. Places where poverty is the queen and camorra the king."
