Today I decided to write about something I love: Neapolitan songs. Naples has a very old musical tradition, with songs about all you can feel in love: nostalgia for a lost love, melancholy for a love you can’t have for one reason or the other, the romance of fresh love, passion or desire for the person you love (or you would like to love), jealousy about the person you’re in love with, regrets for the person you’ve hurt, and so on.
It’s been a while since my last post. To make up for it, I’ve decided to show some nice pictures I took of some statues belonging to the so-called Collezione Farnese at the National Archaeological Museum in Naples.
Despite being an Egyptologist, I just realized I never published anything related to Egypt on this blog, so it was high time I remedied the deficiency and wrote about something Egyptological (using my own photographs).
This post is about the site of Saqqara, northwest of Memphis and not far from Cairo. It is famous for hosting the first pyramid built in Egypt, namely the step-pyramid of king Djoser (ca. 2667 to 2648 BC), who was the second king of the Third Dynasty.
This latest tutorial is a little more about grammar, because I talk about the article, both definite and indefinite, in Italian. As always, feel free to post comments and questions. I hope you enjoy it, and to see you soon again on this blog. Ciao ciao!
