Gallerie d’Italia – Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano

$0 $0 per person

Gallerie d’Italia – Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano, the Intesa Sanpaolo museum venue in Naples, stands at the very heart of the city, in Via Toledo. The palazzo’s construction began in 1635, commissioned by the wealthy Spanish merchant Giovanni Zevallos, duke of Ostuni since 1639. In 1688 the property passed to the Colonna family, one of the most influential aristocratic families in the Roman and Neapolitan circles. Between 1898 and 1920, Banca Commerciale Italiana conducted a campaign to purchase the palazzo. The building was adapted to its new functions by architect Luigi Platania who must be credited for the Art Nouveau style modifications that perfectly integrate with the Baroque architectural structure and the building’s nineteenth-century decorative apparatus. The selection of paintings on display at Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano – a venue that over recent years has become one of the Neapolitan museums with the highest number of visitors – offers an anthology describing the main stages of Neapolitan painting, from the early seventeenth century, with the intense Martyrdom of Saint Ursula (Caravaggio’s last masterpiece completed only a few weeks before his death in 1610), up to the nineteenth century. Most remarkable artists displayed at Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano include: Louis Finson with a famous painting from a lost Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Bernardo Cavallino, Angelo Caroselli, Paolo Porpora, Francesco Guarini, Luca Giordano, Francesco Solimena, Gaspare Traversi, Gaspar van Wittel, Anton Smink Pitloo, Giacinto Gigante, Gabriele Smargiassi, Salvatore Fergola, Nicola Palizzi, Domenico Morelli, Gioacchino Toma, Vincenzo Migliaro, and others. Lastly, the museum holds an outstanding selection of works by Vincenzo Gemito: terracotta sculptures, bronzes, and drawings forming one of the most important collections documenting this artist’s extraordinary career from the 1870s to the 1920s.

Gallerie d’Italia – Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano is more than a museum. It is a vibrant and well-known venue playing an active role within the city’s social and cultural context, offering a rich programme of events, temporary exhibitions, educational activities, concerts, and talks organised in collaboration with the most important local, national, and international cultural institutions.
