History and design of Via Duomo in Naples
Spaccanapoli is the most famous street in Naples, via Duomo with its 1200 meters of grandeur is certainly not a secondary street. This road connects the city with a thousand intersections between art, culture, history, tradition and shopping.
Its conception was approved in 1853 when the Bourbon reigned over Naples, its project has undergone several variations over the years, while its design dates back to 14 years earlier. The idea of the road was to connect the current Via Foria to Via Marina, a project that was expanded over the years to expand the connection beyond the Duomo and beyond the current Piazza Nicola Amore. To complete this connection, the facade and a nave of the church of San Giorgio Maggiore, later rebuilt, were demolished. While the width of the road was always the same.
The works were also banned during the period of the unification of Italy, to then be completed in 1868, via Duomo has always been a street in constant evolution so that during the First World War the street was named in dedication to the then American president Woodrow Wilson.
