The author analyzes the production of discourses on Naples, tracking down the origins of the stereotypes of ethnicization of this town and of Southern Italy in general, within the practices of biological inferiorization established by the Italian Criminal Anthropology in the late 1800s. She compares them with the narrative stereotypes of Neapolitans, restated in discourses and prêt-à-porter images «packaged» for the large audience of reality television. Two specific cases are presented here: Il boss delle cerimonie and Napoli Sound. The author basically examines what the national newspapers have to say on these two shows, introduced as actual expression of the Neapolitan people, excitable and excessive by definition. The theoretical premise of these analysis is that in the stereotyped representations of the Mediterranean paradise yesterday’s devils have never ceased to exist, they kept on being told as the real obstacle to the development of global economy.
