What to expect

Learn about the Neapolitan art of silk production in the Middle Ages through the words of a local expert, who will take you away from the main tourist routes inside the Church of Saints Philip and James.

Discover the history of the medieval Silk Art Corporation, born in Naples under the reign of Alfonso of Aragon and specialized in the production of beautiful fabrics exported throughout the country.

Visit the wonderful church dedicated to Saints Philip and James, protectors of the congregation, where the precious fabrics were displayed so that the nobles, entering inside, could admire and purchase them.

But that's not all! You will also have the opportunity to go down to the basement of the church to admire the Holy Land, still consecrated today, and the archaeological remains of a Roman domus.
