The use of Neapolitan dialect in post-unification, its contamination with Italian, the adaptation to music. The understanding and the “export” of the idolatry, from the parody of Ferdinando Russo’s Piccola Borghesia to the phenomenon of the “blob”, from the silent backstage of “Assunta Spina” to Eduard’s comedy.
