In the middle of a little square to the west of the Centro Storico is this statue of Vincenzo Berlini, the Neapolitan composer, who was associated with the Naples Conservatory of Music. When you wander along Via Tribunali, you can often hear music wafting from the windows of San Pietro a Majella church, today’s nearby home of the conservatory. The statue used to have four smaller females statues around it, now long stolen or vanished. Berlini here only has a pigeon, a tourist and graffiti for company.
Lonely Planet describe the square as ‘eclectic, bar-lined..roguish and raffish’. It is very busy on Saturday evenings when it is filled with locals, students and artists. A place to hang out for the young and also those young at heart and a good spot for an aperitif.
