When one thinks of Italy, the sound of the mandolin is one of the first things that comes to mind.
Dating back to 1929, Napoli Mandolin Orchestra hails from its home, the South of Italy.

Besides the best-known Neapolitan songs, their repertoire consists of opera fantasies like Verdi's La Traviata, Bellini's Norma and Bizet's Carmen in original and exclusive arrangements, tarantella-inspired arias and music from films like La Vita é Bella/Life is Beautiful, Amarcord, Il Postino, and Spaghetti Westerns.

The group performs for the city of Naples on official holidays and for the annual summer concert called "Mandolini Sotto le Stelle" (Mandolins Under the Stars) every year in August.

They also performed with Andrea Bocelli during the concert of his new CD dedicated to the Neapolitan repertoire at Piazza del Plebiscito in Naples.
