The history of this area is connected to the name of three women: Donna Albina, Donna Romita and Donna Regina.

Donna Albina was one of the daughters of the Baron Toraldo and the noble family of the Seggio del Nilo. He didn’t have sons so he asked and obtained the chance to give his surname through his daughter, Regina.

When the Baron died, the second daughter Albina – called in this way due to her stunning skin - was only 17.

One day King Robert wrote to Donna Regina Toraldo communicating her the will to give Albina as wife to Don Filippo Capece, member of one of the noblest families of Naples.

Once the three women saw Don Filippo, they all fell in love with him and they started a fight between them.

During an Easter night in 1320, the two youngest sisters asked to the first one to create a convent. The sisters were three, but the convents were two, Donna Regina and Donna Romita. Albina joined few years later to the convent of Romita.

Our street in the Centre of Naples takes its name from this story. We are three minutes away from all the most important points of interest in the city: Piazza del Gesù, San Lorenzo Church, Santa Chiara, San Gregorio Armeno, Piazza Bellini and Piazza Dante. Here you can feel the real soul of Naples.
