Naples! What does the name of this great capital evoke? Founded in the 9-8th century BC, as a Greek colony, under the name of Παρθενόπη Parthenope, and later Νεάπολις Neápolis (New City), Naples is one of the oldest cities in the world. The mere mention of Napoli brings fear to the hearts of Europe-bound travelers, but it's only because they've never been here and know little of its great beauties and elegant benevolence. This private home, called Villa Prota, belongs to the Baronessa Selvaggia Sanserevino di Marcellinara. It's an extraordinary property that stretches, from a chaotic inland road through a densely populated neighborhood not at all worthy of this great estate, a distance of five kilometers to the Mediterranean shore.
