Travel Memory: Naples, Chestnut Festival & Era ‘de maggio

I had the most amazing day at a small roasted chestnut festival that I would never have found without the coolest tour guide in Naples. Live Napolitano music that was so sweet to my ears. Chilly and gray day, warming my hands over a fire. I’m pretty tired, and I still have tonight’s Halloween party to go!! S

When I started my day, I didn’t expect to end it with “Era ‘de maggio” becoming one of my favorite songs. A woman sang it today at the Chestnut Festival, and it made me cry. I had no clue what it was about. It’s about two lovers who must say farewell to each other in May. They hope they can see each other again in the same place always in May. The second part of the song is about their reunion. ♥♥♥♥

I am learning about Canzone Napoletana. ♥

To listen to Era ‘de maggio.
