The museum

Designed by Marcello Piacentini at the end of the 1930s, the building, formerly the headquarters of the Banco di Napoli, was renovated by Michele De Lucchi -AMDL Circle in line with the latest museum standards: the architectural project continues and expands upon the exhibitions and cultural activities offered by the nearby Palazzo Zevallos Stigliano between 1999 and 2022.


The educational activities offered by the Gallerie d’Italia in Naples are designed to meet the needs of schools and associations by presenting the museum as a welcoming, inclusive space.
