Cafébabel Napoli has been nominated as the local team for the month of June. We decided to hand over the reins directly to the protagonists to explain more about what happens in Naples.
In total Babelian style, the team from Naples meets in front of a good cup of coffee, with agendas full of notes and full of desire to work hard.
The task is large: our work is based on monthly meetings that are an occasion to meet up and discuss editorial questions from the blog, ideas and concepts for articles and the latest news from Paris. In other words, it's the time in which we try to be serious people who motivate ourselves and change something in our city. But there is something else: it's a great excuse to have a relaxing coffee with friends!
Our newsroom? Well, like real reporters, we are always on the look out for news, stories and people to speak with. The street is our home. This is the only reason why our office is a piazza (and not how you could think, because we don't have a headquarters to meet in). The Bar di Peppe in Piazza Bellini, right in the centre of Napoli, is our general neighbourhood and the people who surround us are also a fundamental part of our story.
Everyone of us has the same role on the team: a horizontal structure in which anyone can propose stories to write, ideas and much more. Every six months, we select a single person to be responsible for the publications calendar and communication with cafébabel headquarters in Paris. With great serenity, whoever desires can propose themselves as 'Editorial Coordinator'.
Our ideas? Everything is inspired by the vibrance of Napoli: we love our city and its unique way of being European and multicultural. The ideas that it gives us are endless, and we simply follow along and write about them.
