Sant’Antuono feast, recently rediscovered as a moment of celebration for an entire category, will cross the borders of Naples and Italy for the first time. It will be an important day for a profession that in the past has been too often denigrated and which today can rightly be considered a source of pride for the whole country. An initiative that also aims to support those who are suffering more than others from the economic consequences of the delicate historical period we are facing ".
