Welcome to one of the most incredible places in Naples! The Filangieri Museum in via Duomo 288, a few steps from San Gregorio Armeno.
Carlo Filangieri played a prominent role in the kingdom of Naples: he was awarded the honourable title of knight of the order of St. Januarius, showing a strong connection with the Deputation that manages and preserves the Treasure of St. Januarius. His son, the Prince Gaetano Filangieri, decided to devote the first room of the museum to his father Carlo. The arrangement aimed at creating harmony between the XV-style Como Palace and the best exhibition of numerous works (artistic handicrafts, weapons, paintings etc.). Carlo Filangieri’s hall is divided into three parts, covered by gold mosaic vaults crafted by Fabbrica Salviata of Venice. Many narrative functionalities are covered, since the Renaissance architecture hosts innovative XX-century art, sculptures, weapons, garments and Oriental pottery, describing different cultures. The focal point of the entire room is represented by the niche containing the bust of Carlo Filangieri, sculpted by Tito Angelini.
The Carlo Filangieri hall hosts a unique series of XVIII and XIX-century weapons and armour from China, Japan and Turkey, collected by Carlo Filangieri, who was in charge of the Ministry of War during the reign of Francis II of Bourbon.
In this unique location, Opera e Lirica concerts in Naples will take place from December 8th 2018.
