About Us Naples: Life, Death, and Miracles is a miscellany of entries written from October 2002 through the present. In a previous version on the internet, it was called the Around Naples Encyclopedia. It is purposely an idiosyncratic presentation of my personal observations on the general culture of Naples—history, art, archaeology, music, traffic, geology, literature, the evil eye, pizza and anything else that struck and still strikes my fancy. I have included a number of items about southern Italy, in general, beyond the immediate area of Naples. There is also an additional section on the island of Sardinia. Besides the alphabetical index, there is a Portal Index with entries grouped into general subject areas.
