The history and success of the song ‘O sole mio, a world famous classic.

A tale that peers behind the clichés of Naples, too often defined only as “sole-pizza-amore” (sun-pizza-love). Through the history of the song ‘O sole mio, from its birth in 1898 to its consecration, the film narrates the two faces of Naples: on the one hand the paradisiacal, luminous postcard-city, on the other hand, the dark mysterious Naples of the vicoli (the alleys). A kaleidoscope consisting of evidence ranging from the era of silent movies to our days, with the celebrated interpretations of Mario Del Monaco, Elvis Presley, Luciano Pavarotti, Sergio Bruni, and occasional performers such as Paul McCartney and the Spice Girls.
