Also see the website of NUG, Napoli UnderGround, run by ferocious urban troglodytes! There are considerable English-language sections expertly handled by Larry Ray, who has also contributed recollections of Naples (see his link in this sentence) as well as some of the above articles to Naples: Life, Death & Miracles. Larry also has this 30-min. interview (on the NUG website) with New Zealand radio about the "second city" beneath Naples.
