The province of Naples offers many natural set for movies. Many are in fact the films that were shot in the streets of the city of Naples and, each of them belongs to different genres: there are musical films, the famous "sceneggiata" with Mario Merola or with Nino D'Angelo; dramas, action and crime movies, showing the most negative aspects of Naples, as the Camorra, corruption and crime (Matteo Garrone's Gomorra is one example); of course there is no shortage of romantic comedies or romantic movies, often seasoned with typical Neapolitan comedy like the films by Massimo Troisi (we remember the famous "pensavo fosse amore... invece era un calesse").
