On the trail of “Gomorrha”, Frauke Schlieckau explored the southern Italian metropolis together with the journalist and hotel owner Nathalie de Saint Phalle, visited the politically committed Antonio Manfredi in his Museum for Contemporary Art and had artist Giuseppe Zevola show her how to escape from the dark sides of Naples.
