Summary

  • "Native Neopolitan and distinguished scholar Tommaso Astarita gives us a history both erudite and full of personality - from the freethinking, cosmopolitan King Frederick who conferred with Jewish and Muslim philosophers (and dared to meet with the sultan) to the fisherman Masaniello who inspired artists and revolutionaries across Europe. From the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, Naples was on a par with Paris, one of the largest and most cultured cities in Europe."--Jacket.
