Diario napoletano / Neapolitan Diary (1992) Francesco Rosi, Simona Caramelli, Pietro Bontempo, Documentary, Crime, History


A fascinating return to the same issues done in a semi-docu style. The ‘story’ joins Rosi as he fights his way through impossible city traffic to a school of architecture to host a discussion of the older movie. The students explain how things in Naples have changed in thirty years. Nobody even knows who is in charge, as the organized crime institution called Camorra controls everything including a massive drug trade. Disputes with uncooperative judges are now handled with machine guns and bombs. The city’s poor are caught up in the drug industry, which creates more poverty and misery.

As Rosi and his companions tour the city, the docu camera pulls in comments and testimony from experts on both the New Naples and its historical roots. Speculative development has scarred the countryside with giant apartment buildings that now clog most every bit of seaside real estate. Public money is quickly tapped by projects that generate private profits while the city infrastructure is a mess. Modern Naples has been built atop the ruins of older cities. An engineer tells us that building so many high-rise structures on the city’s uncertain foundations is risky. Meanwhile the community is allowed to sprawl right up to the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. If the volcano were to erupt, millions of inhabitants would be as trapped as the citizens of ancient Pompeii.

Through all of this, Rosi is able to stroll about his beloved city and enjoy its bakeries and surviving architecture. Neapolitan Diary compliments Hands Over the City while making this Criterion disc an excellent research document on urban problems.
