Duca di Martina Decorative Arts Museum

The park of the Duca di Martina Museum forms a green oasis in the very center of town of Naples. The beautiful English-style park sports pines, cypresses, oaks, and many other kinds of trees. A stroll through the park leads you to breathtaking views over the Gulf of Naples. At the heart of the park lies the neoclassical Villa Floridiana, as well as a greenhouse, an open-air theater, and a little temple. The villa houses the Duca di Martina collection of decorative arts, one of the most splendid and complete in all of Italy.

The holdings on the hill of Vomero were acquired by Ferdinand I of Bourbon as a summer residence for the Duchess of Floridia, Lucia Migliaccio. The exquisitely refined neo-classical villa was designed by the Tuscan architect Antonio Niccolini.

The villa and the surrounding parks were acquired by the state in 1919. The Ceramics Museum of the Duke of Martina has been housed here since 1927. The museum's prestigious collection of Oriental and European decorative art includes over six thousand objects made of various decorative materials, from glass to amber, coral to enamel, but mostly porcelain and majolica.
