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 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 leads to a collection of art from the Bank of Naples with treasures from the 16th to the 19th century. The completely restructured basement floor hosts conferences and exhibitions. In a pavilion at the end of the glorious garden, there is the Museum of Carriages.

Don't miss this rare occasion for a look into a time when Naples was one of the epicenters of art and culture in Europe and post-unification Italy.
