What to expect

The Museum Pignatelli Cortes is an example of a 'house-museum' where the objects you see inside are still in their original location and in their original rooms. The museum was once the residence of several noble families, such as the Actons, the Rothschilds and the Pignatelli family.

Elegant example of the neoclassical architecture typical of the city of Naples, the Villa was designed by Pietro Valente in 1826, while the museum was created later, in 1955, when the princess Rosina Pignatelli donated the park and villa to the Italian state. She also donated all the furnishing and collections that were inside the residence: domestic objects, silverware, ornaments in bronze, small bronze statues and porcelain. All these objects represent the artistic interests of the Pignatellis. Climb the grand staircase and arrive at the upper floor, where you can see a collection of art from the Bank of Naples, with treasures from the 16th to the 19th century. The basement was completely restructured and is now used for conferences and exhibitions.

Don't miss a visit to the garden pavilion where the Museum of Carriages is hosted. This collection shows many examples of French, English and Italian carriages and gigs, as well as many leather objects, riding crops, bridle bits, accessories and clothing items that prove the high quality of artisanal production in Naples in the 19th century.
