The Recording Studio project was consolidated, leading to the creation of an association called Apogeo Records. The first project led to the creation of a CD and a video in collaboration with the children of the district. Apogeo Records supported the get together of a group of kids that was always playing in the streets in front of the church and created an activity group called Luce (Light). This activity group was involved in a musical training and participated in the writing of the lyrics for the CD and further in video shootings.
In 2008 LAltra Napoli participated in the restructuring of the Catacombs of San Gennaro and the Basilica of San Gennaro extra moenia. In 2014, the number of visitors of the Catacombs reached 50,000. The overall increase in the incoming visitors since 2008 was greater than 300%. The Catacombs became a mandatory stop for tourists in the city. The social cooperative that manages the site, La Paranza, currently organizes not only guided tours but also numerous events dedicated to art, theatre, and culture. In 2013, the Catacombs organized the first diffused modern art exhibition in the city of Naples in collaboration with three other important museums (Museum of Modern Art, Archeological Museum, and Capodimonte Museum). In 2014 and 2015, Altra Napoli and other partners promoted an innovation and technology program with the Ministry of Education and Research. The project realized a series of site-specific digital installations in the Catacombs that were the basis of a new technological visit. All the activities stimulated the creation of new jobs. The number of people regularly employed doubled, reaching 15 people at the end of 2014. In 2015, the social cooperative was recognized as national best practice example and received the recognition and benediction from Pope Francis for excellence and inspiring results.
