The essay deals with the revival and rediscovery of Scarlatti in Naples in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as revealed in contemporary newspapers and gazettes. This rediscovery followed in the wake of the early music revival, which saw a series of small-scale publications featuring presentations of ‘ancient’ authors by such luminaries as Beniamino Cesi and Alessandro Longo. As for performances, the name of Scarlatti begins to appears in local concert programmes only from 1919, the year of the foundation of the Associazione Musicale Scarlatti. Over the following decades this society was responsible for enabling concert-goers to hear a series of his masterpieces for the first time.
