Lustra is an ancient neapolitan word. It signifies “it lights up”. It is for me the most suitable word to fully describe the brightness of Naples, a light that has in itself the ability to expand over the city, changing its face, and to influence those who live there.
Conducting sort of an anthropological participant observation, Fiorito combines the very elements that he feels are the core of the city and rework them in an extremely creative way, transforming Lustra in a personal symphony, a tribute to what makes the background of ever-present sounds of the city, conscious or unconscious soundtrack for its residents.
