    THE HOLY MILE 

    The Holy Mile is a sacred journey that has been returned to Naples and to Neapolitans first, and to visitors and tourists, next. It is an itinerary one-mile long, from the tomb of St. Gennaro to his Treasury.
    To walk along the Holy Mile means to cross the Sanità District, where once people in the south and east of Naples lived, from African to Chinese, where once one could met coaches with Popes, kings and cardinals,  where today the churches are not only prodigious galleries but areas of rest, peace and design for a better life.
    To “live” the Holy Mile means supporting the redemption of this district by emphasizing its long history, but especially to meet a district where humanism either dies or becomes humanity.
