National Museum of Capodimonte

The National Museum of Capodimonte is a museum in Naples, located inside the palace of the same name in the town of Capodimonte: it houses galleries of ancient art, one of contemporary art, and a historical apartment.

It was officially opened in 1957, although the rooms of the palace have housed works of art since as early as 1758. It mainly holds paintings, distributed widely in the two main collections, namely the Farnese collection, which includes some of the great names in Italian and international painting (including Raphael, Titian, Parmigianino, Bruegel the Elder, El Greco, Ludovico Carracci, Guido Reni), and that of the Neapolitan Gallery, which collects works from churches in and around the city, transported to Capodimonte for precautionary purposes from the suppressions onward (Simone Martini, Colantonio, Caravaggio, Ribera, Luca Giordano, Francesco Solimena). Also important is the contemporary art collection, the only one of its kind in Italy, in which Andy Warhol's Vesuvius stands out.
