The Museum

Enter a fascinating place, versatile and rich in history

A generous and enlightened donation from Count Alfredo Correale and his brother Pompeo, the last descendants of an ancient and noble Neapolitan family.

The two brothers, refined and cultured collectors, arranged for their works of art to be brought together in the Villa alla Rota, which had belonged to the family for centuries and set up a museum in their name.

The Correale Museum, opened in May 1924, is today divided across the four floors of the eighteenth-century residence, creating a total of 24 rooms, which are ordered according to a modern chronological criterion and by sections. From the entrance hall, it is possible to access the garden and, crossing the avenue, reach the prestigious Belvedere terrace overlooking the sea to enjoy the splendid landscape of the Gulf of Naples.
