Start off your Thanksgiving Italian style: Pour a bubbly aperitivo and get everyone in a festive mood even before the meal begins.

Naples is the capital of Campania, but the region is more than Naples and Vesuvius. There is the sea and a splendid coast, but Campania also has a very rich inland region, which has produced prized vegetables and fruits since the time of the ancient Romans and Greeks.
