On the ancient islet of Megaride stands the Castel dell'Ovo. One of the most imaginative Neapolitan legends would trace its name back to the egg that Virgil is said to have hidden inside a cage in the basement of the castle. The place where the egg was kept was closed by heavy locks and kept secret because "all the facts and fortune of Castel Marino hung from that egg".
From that moment the fate of the Castle , together with that of the entire city of Naples, has been linked to that of the egg. The chronicles report that, at the time of Queen Giovanna I, the castle suffered extensive damage due to the collapse of the arch that unites the two rocks on which it is built and the Queen was forced to solemnly declare that she had replaced the egg to prevent panic from spreading in the city for fear of new and more serious disasters.
Neapolitan icons become designer graphics with "The symbols of Naples", an artistic project by the Switch communication agency, made up of young creatives under 35.
The graphics, created by the designer Peppe Guida, are protected by Plexiglas and surrounded by a precious wooden frame handcrafted by the craftsmen of the GM Group, a leading company in the production and distribution of Italian handcrafted frames. Precisely the synergy with GM Group and Switch, all realities belonging to the same holding company of Le Voci di Dentro, allows our atelier to sell designer graphics protected by precious frames at advantageous prices.
