Duke of Martina Museum Tour – Naples
The collection of the noble alchemist
A palace among art and landscape
The splendid holdings on the Vomero hill was acquired by Ferdinand I of Bourbon as a summer residence of the Duchess of Floridia Lucia Migliaccio. ...
Thus was born the Floridiana, elegant neoclassical villa by the architect Antonio Piccolini of Tuscan origin.
The villa and the park were purchased in 1919 by the State and since 1927 the Ceramics Museum of Martina, which contains one of the most prestigious collections of European and oriental decorative arts, is located here. The collection comprises about six thousand objects of artistic production: ornamental, ‘gallantry’, glass, ivory, amber, lacquer, coral, turtles, glazes, especially porcelain and majolica.
