Favorite thing: I Church of Gesł Nuovo or else called Trinitą Maggiore is an important church of Napoli located just in front of Santa Chiara church.
First in that area there was Palazzo Sanseverino,finished in 1470. During Spanish occupation, the palace was confiscated and the owner, Ferrante Sanseverino was deported. In 1584 the palace was sold to the Jesuits which transformed it in a church in 1601. The new Church got the name of Gesł Nuovo (new Jesus) to distinguish it from the close by existent church called Gesł Vecchio. During the bombing of second world war a bomb hit the church but did not explode, it is still conserved inside the church.

Fondest memory: There you can find the grave of Saint Giuseppe Moscato a doctor, that dedicated his life to help sick people.
