Vincenzo Minieri CEO Cargomar
At the conclusion of the celebrations for Cargomar’s first decade, after a year full of changes
and great satisfaction, our company is seeing a quantitative and qualitative growth trend.
We are ready for new the appointment with our commitment made last year, on our decennial,
when, on the publication of the first volume dedicated to the history of Naples, we stated our
intention to make it the first of a long series, each one dedicated to one of the areas of our
city which are most characterized by their historical and cultural value.
Therefore, we invited Professors Pasquale Rossi and Paola Villani, lecturers in history of
architecture and Italian literature at the Università Suor Orsola Benincasa of Naples,
to write the ‘story’ of Piazza Mercato. This choice was dictated by the thirty-year-old
tradition of scientific research that this university provides. The Università Suor Orsola
Benincasa of Naples is the first university in Italy to offer a graduate degree in Conservation
of Cultural Heritage (1991) for the protection and promotion of the heritage of Naples,
whose city center is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site (1995).
