A view shows the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Italy. From Scarlatti to Verdi, the great arias of Italian opera are famous all over the world, an art that was born towards the end of the 16th century on the peninsula and which Italy hopes will be recognised by Unesco as intangible heritage of humanity.
