Fratelli Scuotto della Scarabbattola1
Why locals love it
This is not for all Neapolitans! some would think Scarabbattola's work might just be caricatures! but art is meant to divide and so the Scuotto brothers do it with their pieces. They focus on Neapolitan traditional figures and they re-interpret it. Through their work the tradition rebels against its meaningless commercialization.
Why you should visit it
The Scarabbattola is a little art gallery in itself, where you can buy extremely interesting pieces of craftsmanship all closely linked to the traditions of Napoli and all accompanied by precise meanings. If you are looking for souvenirs, the Scarabbattola's provides honour to the genre and you'll get back home with a piece of art.
Talk to the owners, ask what is behind each piece.
