"Naples has lights and shadows. Our program focuses on the lights, making you see a reverberation of them that you sometimes don't consider. This program also serves to dismantle prejudices - said Alberto Angela - Naples is for Italy a bit what Italy is for abroad. There are commonplaces, but then you have to know, knowledge is the most important thing to demolish and dismantle prejudices. I like it in Naples, I've been coming here to work for years. I'm not Neapolitan, I'm from the North, I'm from Piedmont, from Turin even, but I feel at ease, and this means a lot. This program also serves to dismantle these prejudices".

Among the guests of the evening some well-known faces of the Neapolitan song and theater as Massimo Ranieri, Marisa Laurito and the brilliant Serena Rossi and Serena Autieri. In the role of Charles III of Bourbon a giant of Italian cinema, Giancarlo Giannini.
