FATHER AND SON

It's not often that museums help produce games, so the upcoming Father and Son, produced and distributed by The Naples Archaeological Museum, is notable if only for that honor. At the same time, though, the game looks intriguing in its own right. Father and Son is a 2D side-scrolling narrative game that dives into themes like love, fears, dreams, and the passing of time.
The story is about an archaeologist and the son he never knew, and the main character crosses the lives of people from different historical eras (which is where the archaeological theme comes in). The protagonist gets to travel through eras like Ancient Rome, Egypt, and Bourbon Naples, and the player's choices will affect the story and the ending.

MARADONA AND NAPOLI

Maradona was undoubtedly the most valuable player after the world cup and he was already playing in Napoli. Especially after the world cup, all eyes turned to Napoli. He continued to live his best years and took a major role in Napoli's two championships in the seasons 1986–87 and 1989–90.
The city of Naples had a special relationship with Maradona. Being ultimately a religious city, Naples regarded Maradona as a semi-saint (or maybe a real saint) figure. There were shrines dedicated to Maradona, people lid candles and made special prayers on Sundays and festivities.
Naples and Maradona has one serious conflict. In the world cup '90 which was held in Italy, he requested the city to support Argentina instead of Italy. He backed his idea by reminding them how the Italian governments which were dominated by North, neglected South Italy and Naples.

THE BASTARDS OF PIZZOFALCONE

In the Bastard books we have contemporary Naples in all its noisy complexity, and a group of cops whose insights into crime arise as much from their own imperfections as from their training and experience.
We arrive in the rough Neapolitan precinct of Pizzofalcone in the company of Lieutenant Giuseppe Lojacono, a Sicilian known as “the Chinaman” because of his “almond-shaped eyes.”
Their replacements are discards, Lojacono’s Commissario warns him: “people who aren’t welcome where they are now, whose commanding officers are eager to get rid of them. Renegades, bastards, or screwups, every last one of them!”
Each of the Bastards books is structured around a primary case with subordinate but sometimes intersecting plot lines.
