In the nineteenth century Naples, refined capital and crossway of cultures, many aristocratic salons continued the tradition of Enlightenments' "civilization of the conversation". Cosmopolitan ladies and cultivated gentlewomen gave their contribution to transforming the social gatherings in meetings open to a civic and innovative relationship that originated from other European nations. Heir of these backgrounds, educated in music and literature, Adelaide Del Balzo with her husband Francesco Pignatelli, Prince of Strongoli animated a brilliant cultural circle where the model of aristocratic sociability gave way to a place for social and intellectual planning. Supported by the Court circles of the newly formed Italian Kingdom, helped by the educator Antoinette Pagliara, the princess projected a training program for the girls coming from the upper class of a city that was no more a capital, forced to rethink its role. As well as Neapolitan aristocratic circles obliged to revise loyalty and political cultures, replacing the noble tradition of social distinction with a new way of projecting itself as a ruling class.
