Painters of the current Neapolitan mannerism of the 16th century are represented as being linked to the Spanish counter-Reformation religious conceptions. These painters are affected, in various ways, by the new realistic and illuministic experiences of Michelangelo da Caravaggio in the first half of the 17th century.
Along these rooms there is an exhaustive panorama of Neapolitan paintings and decorative arts from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, the Spanish viceregno, through the short Austrian viceroy period, up to the establishment of the independent Kingdom of Naples and Sicily with Carlo Borbone of 1735.
