I lived in Naples for seven years and believe me got to know what life in Naples is like, when you belong somewhere in the low/middle society. Although I watch this soap frequently (almost every day), I can't identify anything of what I experienced in Naples - but some usage of the dialect here and there. The "story" could take place everywhere else. I guess since producers and or directors wanted to offer something anybody could identify with, a lot of local sets, realities and circumstances are not shown. This is not Naples, so you may watch it as "off-the-shelf" soap.
