Naples 15 honored at Procida 2022

Mosaico per Procida” (literally: Mosaic for Procida”) is a collaborative cultural project which involves numerous actors aimed at producing a celebratory label for the 2022 capital of European culture: the wonderful island of Procida in Campania region, Southern Italy. An idea born from the meeting between the notorious winemaker Roberto Cipresso and the journalist editor-in-chief of Mediterranea Online Gaetano Cataldo for the creation of a wine that is unique under any point of view. About 25 wineries, distributed throughout the Campania region, Southern Italy, will bring their wines together in the blend that will give life to a grand cuvée for a total of about 6000 bottles.”

Naples 15's Caffé & Pizza Sospeso

“Suspended” Coffee & Pizza:

Salvatore with PizzaIn Naples once upon a time there was a beautiful habit. When a person was happy for some reason and wanted a coffee, instead of paying for one they paid for two. One they drank and the other was reserved for someone worse off who couldn’t afford it. In other words this was a coffee offered to humanity.

Here at Naples 15 we would like to take the initiative of the caffe sospeso and offer the Pizza Margherita suspended.

Our customers may participate by paying only half price for the second (suspended) pizza as a donation. You can enable those whom are less fortunate to eat a hot meal. This can also be done traditionally with a coffee. As a Neopolitan I grew up with this tradition and I believe it makes the heart feel better when you can do something for someone you don’t know and receive nothing in return.

If you are in need, please come in and ask our wait staff if there are any suspended pizzas available.

Learn more about this popular Neopolitan tradition.  Or please read this excellent book written by acclaimed author and philosopher, Luciano De Crescenzo called; IL Caffe Sospeso.
