Museo Pignatelli Cortes



The site reopens to visitors on April 28 for the DL 52 of April 22, 2021
​Reservation required on line for Saturday, Sunday and Holiday

This is a rare example of a house-museum. The objects within are found in their original locations in their original rooms. This princely residence radiates with the taste and prestige of its previous occupants, among them the Acton family, the Rothschilds and the Pignatellis. The villa, a harmonious and elegant example of Neapolitan neoclassical architecture, was designed by Pietro Valente in 1826. The museum was created in 1955 when the princess Rosina Pignatelli donated the park and villa, together with all its furnishings and collections to the Italian State. It displays a variety of furniture, domestic objects, silverware, ornaments and furnishings in bronze, small bronze statues and statuettes and porcelain, all of which demonstrate the interests of the Pignatelli family. The grand staircase leading to the upper floor takes us to a collection of art from the Bank of Naples with treasures from the 16th to the 19th century. The basement floor, completely restructured, hosts conferences and exhibitions while, in a pavilion at the end of the garden, thereis the Museum of Carriages.
