Naples, its cultural heritage and with it also its Language are a patrimony of all humanity, as UNESCO reminds us when it decrees the Historic Center of the city of Naples as a world heritage, recognizing the uniqueness of cultural identity of Naples and its cultural contribution to all Europe and beyond. That is why this patrimony must be defended by any interference and violation and this is the international work of the Neapolitan Academy presided by Massimiliano Verde, especially because in Italy this heritage is often treated, as who speaks it, in a villainous and very degraded way. So Neapolitan Language is not taught, it’s treated as the language of the mafia and the ignorants or ridiculous people.
The Neapolitan Academy works and cooperates internationally to promote this cultural heritage, jointly and favoring the dialogue with the other cultural communities that suffer the same or similar problems. The President of the Neapolitan Academy, Massimiliano Verde , made the first Certificate of the Neapolitan language and culture of European level (CEFR skilled) recognized in its cultural value by the Municipality and the Mayor of Naples, and this is a historical fact considered the recognition / patronage of the maxim public institution of the city of Naples.
