Museo di Capodimonte

History

The National Museum of Capodimonte is located in the Bosco di Capodimonte, a park used by the Bourbons for hunting. The palace was founded in 1735 when Charles of Bourbon decided to organize the works of art inherited from his mother, Elizabeth Farnese. In 1830 it was finished under the leadership of King Ferdinand II, then became the residence of the Dukes of Aosta until 1920, when it became the property of the state. After the war the National Museum of Capodimonte was officially inaugurated.

The museum is located inside the vast forest of Capodimonte. The palace is developed in three floors containing works of art fundamental to Italian and European culture. The first floor includes the Farnese Gallery, the Borgia collection, the De Cicco collection, the porcelain gallery, the Bourbon and Farnese armory and part of the royal apartment. The Farnese Gallery is an indispensable stop for anyone who comes to Naples as you can admire works by artists such as Titian, Correggio and Parmigianino. Crossing the rooms of the real apartment is a unique experience because it has remained unchanged over time and allows you to travel with imagination by transporting visitors in a fairy tale. The second floor includes Neapolitan art, Caravaggio and Caravaggeschi, the tapestry room and the contemporary art collection that extends and ends on the third floor.

It is advisable to visit the museum in the morning or on a sunny day to fully enjoy the park, organize a picnic, play, run or simply walk through the avenues of the forest. Despite being underestimated, the museum of Capodimonte is a milestone as it houses the works of art of the most important Italian and European artists. Not to be missed is the vision of the Flagellation of Christ by Caravaggio, a work of great importance for Neapolitan Baroque painting, of great visual and emotional impact. The museum also organizes exhibitions and often houses internationally renowned paintings from all over the world.
