Centro Storico, Napoli: a south Italian Chandni Chowk  Naples feels like a different country — grittier, messier, shabbier, feistier — from the Italy of the north.  Not surprising, really, because Naples always was a different country until 1861.  It retained the Greek language and culture of its founders through the Roman Empire, and even now the locals speak a language — Neapolitan — that is as different from Italian as Haryanvi is from Hindi. (Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend shows how Neapolitan schoolchildren in the 1950s struggled to understand their Italian-speaking teachers.) Friends had warned me against visiting Naples, telling me it is a den of thieves and tricksters, that it smells bad, that it completely lacks the grace and charm of the north.  But so far I love it.  It reminds me, in its unromantic lived-in antiquity and its in-your-face over-crowdedness, of India.  No wonder the place is teeming with desi migrants. “Kitna door hai,” I said unthinkingly to a Neapolitan street salesman I had stopped to ask for directions to the Santa Chiara cloisters. “Nazdiq hai,” he said without missing a beat.  He was from Pakistani Punjab.  I felt at home. #travel #travelgram #wanderlust #napoli #naples #neapolitan #centrostorico #gritty #feisty #shabby #elenaferrante #chandnichowk #desi #home
