National Museum of Capodimonte

The building of Reggia di Capodimonte goes back to the reign of Carlo di Borbone to host the Farnese's art collection. The royal palace was later enriched with items from the former Bourbon royal sites and it is the only ancient art museum in Italy to have also a section of contemporary art. It keeps works from Caravaggio to Masaccio, from Titian to Neapolitan nineteenth-century art.
The Museum is on three floors. On the main floor you find the Farnese Gallery and the Royal Apartment, the second floor houses the Neapolitan Gallery and the third the nineteenth century collection and the Contemporary Art collection.
Galleria Farnese keeps the extraordinary family collection, arrived in Naples as inheritance of King Carlo di Borbone, son of Elisabetta Farnese, the last descendant of the famous Italian renaissance family.
In the Neapolitan Gallery, there are works by southern artists or by masters like Simone Martini, Tiziano and Caravaggio.
The nineteenth century collection includes the works of the most important Neapolitan masters that prove what the pictorial Neapolitan school was, between academic tradition and the new themes of the real.
Finally, the contemporary art collection is mostly composed of works by important International artists specially planned for the rooms of Capodimonte on solo shows, the first being the one dedicated to Alberto Buri in 1978 who displayed Grande Cretto Nero.
