Ferdinando Manlio was an Italian sculptor and urban planner of the Renaissance, active in Naples. He trained under the sculptor Giovanni da Nola. From 1540, he led the rebuilding of the Basilica of the Santissima Annunziata Maggiore, along with Giovanni Benincasa; the present church however was rebuilt. As a result of this, the viceroy of Naples, Pedro Álvarez de Toledo asked Manlio and Benincasa to design a long road connecting the Royal Palace of Naples to one of the city gates; this is now the via Toledo. The pair redesigned the Castel Capuano, transforming it from a military building into the new Palace of Justice. Dennis, George. John Murray. Handbook for travellers in Southern Italy.

Never Without You

"Never Without You" is a tribute song from Ringo Starr to his former Beatles bandmate George Harrison who died on 29 November 2001. The recording appeared on Starr's 2003 album Ringo Rama, was released as a single. "Never Without You" was co-written by Starr, Mark Hudson and Gary Nicholson. Starr commented: "Gary Nicholson started that song, Mark brought it over and we realized we could tailor it. George was on my mind then." In a 2003 interview, Starr said that he had remained closest to Harrison of all the former Beatles following the group's break-up in 1970, that the song conveyed "how I miss him in my heart and in music". The recording includes a lead guitar part by Harrison's friend Eric Clapton. Starr said of Clapton's contribution: "Eric's on two tracks on the album, but I wanted him on this song because George loved Eric and Eric loved George." Clapton uses Harrison's favourite technique, the slide guitar, to achieve the characteristic sound of a song of the deceased former Beatle. The heartfelt lyrics of "Never Without You" are sometimes misquoted the following lines, which refer to the titles of two of Harrison's songs from the Beatles' Abbey Road and Harrison's All Things Must Pass albums respectively: "Here Comes the Sun" is about you "I Dig Love" is about youStarr uses the riff-driven melody from Harrison's song "What Is Life" in the middle of "Never Without You", right before he makes reference to "All Things Must Pass".

The lyrics mention Harrison's composition "Within You Without You" from the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. After the first chorus, the lyric goes “Here today, not alone”, a reference to the 1982 Paul McCartney song, “Here Today”, written as a tribute to former bandmate John Lennon after he was assassinated.
