Our guide this week: Sergio Gatto, 61, was a dog trainer for many years. When he had to close his business he moved to London, working in the catering sector for two years. Now back in Italy, he sells Scarp de’ tenis and also works on the editorial board of the magazine.
My favourite place in Naples
Plaza Leon is a cafe which is situated in Piazza Giovanni Leone, near Porta Capuana, one of the ancient entry routes into the city. I enjoy going there to have a good coffee, sitting comfortably to talk to the young barista who lets me eat delicious croissants filled with pistachio cream with my coffee. From this privileged place I can observe the square where there used to be a market and a palace (the old seat of the magistrates court), which is now in the process of being restored.
Best things to eat
In Naples you can have excellent coffee, exquisite pizza and eat pasta with delicious ragu, but not everyone knows the casiatello and pastiera, popular pastries or cakes that you eat during the Easter period. And then there are also the lemon cakes, a typical speciality of Sorrento.
