The Museum of Capodimonte

The Museum of Capodimonte, opened in 1957, houses an art gallery among the richest and most prestigious of Italy in the palace, essential stop on the Grand Tour, commissioned in 1738 by Charles of Bourbon, to house the Farnese collection inherited from his mother Elizabeth. The list of great Italian painters exhibited in the Museum of Capodimonte reads like the best book on Italian art you've ever read. In the Farnese Collection, one of the most famous of the Renaissance with masterpieces by Titian, Raphael, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Mantegna, Correggio and Parmigianino, Lotto, El Greco and the Carracci, you'll find masterpieces by artists of every Italian school of painting. The art gallery in Naples from the thirteenth to the eighteenth century exhibits works of art coming mainly from Neapolitan churches and monasteries, works by Simone Martini, Titian, Caravaggio, Ribera, Artemisia Gentileschi, Luca Giordano and Francesco Solimena. The nineteenth century gallery and the private nineteenth century section complete the collections, with works by Boldini, Gemito, Mancini, and the contemporary art section, unique among the medieval and the modern Italian art museums, with artists such as Alberto Burri and Andy Warhol. Capodimonte is also a Park. The royal park, first a hunting reserve is a pristine green area overlooking the city and the Bay of Naples. In 2014 the park of Capodimonte was recognized as Italy's most beautiful park for its historical, architectural and botanical heritage.
