The Farnese Collection, with works by the great masters of the Renaissance, both Italian (mainly from Veneto, Lombardy and Emilia), and foreign (Flemish in particular), truly is a one-of-a-kind art collection, which the Kings of Naples acquired through inheritance: Antea by Parmigianino, Danae by Titian, Misanthrope by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Hercules at the Crossroads by Annibale Carracci are just some of the famous paintings that visitors can admire in the Farnese gallery at Capodimonte. It was Alessandro Farnese, otherwise known as Pope Paul III, who commissioned and collected many
of the artworks for Palazzo Farnese in Rome, while other masterpieces in the collection come from the ducal palaces of Parma and Piacenza.
A number of precious decorative art objects also belong to the Farnese collection, such as the silver gilt and rock crystal Farnese casket, as well as numerous other silver, bronze and marble pieces of exceptional value.
