“This project, due to the courage and inventiveness of Carmine Cardinale, bears witness to a south that does not want to die,” De Luca said. “Among the different rooms I found all of Southern Italy: the old trades, the history, the family, the gastronomy and I breathed in an atmosphere of strong spirituality”. Also, complimenting the art directors who worked on the
project, he added: “The room that struck me the most is that of the Kiss of Judas, because you have masterfully managed to reproduce the setting of that time”. The Governor then concluded his speech by renewing his commitment to a concrete valorisation of the Campania region. Connecting himself to these words, Cardinale underlined that he certainly had to do even more, promoting other important initiatives to increase real growth, both under the social, economic and cultural aspects.
