CLEANAP is a socially advantageous performance.
Everybody can take part to it, no matter what their political or ideological ideas are, because Naples’ welfare is an aim that cuts across any specific lines. Its supporters are unstructured and unsponsored. We want to create new urban and voluntary citizen actions.
It goes without saying that our actions neither want nor can substitute the ordinary cleaning and maintenance of a public place. Our actions are simply a constructive and active challenge aimed to the creation of a new awareness in citizens and institutions.
Our name CLEANAP, is a crasis and it comes out from the verb to Clean and our town’s name: NAP(oli). If you pronounce it, it will come out as “Clean up” whose double meaning (the literal and the metaphorical ones) seemed particularly appropriated to our mission. Same thing for our subheading “Piazza Pulita”: in Italian it means not only “Tidy Square”, but also “to make a clean sweep of something”.
Let’s go into the streets and make our small sign !
“Man is a political animal by nature. And nature does nothing in vain.”
