Walk in Ferrante’s footsteps, in a weekend at Naples, Italy.

WWalk in Ferrante’s footsteps, a week end in Naples, Italy. The Bay of Naples, the setting for Elena Ferrante’s bestselling novels.It’s raining buckets, or piove a secchiate, as they say in Naples — and it continues all weekend. No matter. Elena and Lila, the resilient characters in Elena Ferrante’s bestselling Neapolitan novels who stand up to the Solaras mafiosi, wouldn’t be floored by a shower. Armed with enormous umbrellas, we head out to find the Naples described in minute geographical detail in My Brilliant Friend, the first novel in the series about the friendship between two poor, clever girls in 1950s Napoli.

Ferrante may not have done for Naples what Peter Mayle did for Provence (phew!), but, thanks in part to her novels, the southern Italian city is becoming a favourite destination for literature-loving mini-break enthusiasts. Last year was performed the television adaptation of the first book.
