Piazza Vincenzo Bellini, located along the main decumanus of Naples, is one of the liveliest areas of the city thanks to the presence of numerous venues that overlook it. With its rectangular shape, it has always been a crucial meeting point for intellectuals, surrounded as it is by various university institutions and positioned near the Academy of Fine Arts and the Conservatory of San Pietro a Majella. The latter is particularly significant as it welcomed important national composers, including Vincenzo Bellini, to whom the square owes its name.
