Paint: Blu Posillipo
Paint Name (I/E/F/D): Blu Posillipo / Posillipo Blue / Bleu Posillipo / Posillipo Blau
Paint Code(s): AR-355, AR-369
Note: "Posillipo" is considered by many to be the most beautiful (and upscale) part of Naples, Italy, located on a hill with steep cliffs and spectacular panoramic views above the Bay of Naples. My guess would be that the name, as applied to paint, was chosen by someone who was reminiscent of the color of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Naples.
Trivia: The name Posillipo seems to stem from the word "Pausilypon", meaning "recovery from sorrow".
