The first of the four gates of the city of Naples has been opened. Porta San Gennaro, the oldest gate according to tradition, reopened, restored, on the day dedicated to the Jubilee for Naples, following an initiative of Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, for the renaissance of the city. “It is the gate of sharing, of solidarity - said Pepe - we are opening the gate to let in justice, to reconsign Naples to its inhabitants in the vestages of civil cohabitation”.

After the opening of Porta San Gennaro, the simulacrum of which was made in papier-maché by children from Procida, a long torchlight parade followed the city streets, finishing at the Cathedral.
