But is she seeing things as they really are? Where must she look to find her true reflection and a life she can claim as her own?Giovanna's search leads her to two kindred cities that fear and detest one another: the Naples of the heights, which assumes a mask of refinement, and the Naples of the depths, a place of excess and vulgarity.
