Pheasant of the Capodimonte Wood

With the closure of the vaccination hub in the Fagianeria del Bosco di Capodimonte in Naples, the House of Health and Wellness is born to help citizens who seek not only physical but also psychological support for many problems.

This new structure is always found in the Pheasant House and confirms the collaboration between the Capodimonte Museum and the ASL Napoli 1 Centro, already very close during the emergency due to the pandemic precisely due to the setting up of the center to administer the vaccines.

It is no coincidence that the Pheasant was chosen as the location for this new initiative because we know how much Covid has affected mental and psychological health of many citizens, between fears, uncertainties, loneliness, lack of psychological support and therefore creating the House of Health and Wellness is a sign of continuity. After administering the Covid vaccines, it now arises attention to people's quality of life also affected psychologically by the pandemic and who have neglected other important aspects of their organism.

The Casa della Salute e del Benessere project was commissioned by the directors of Capodimonte and the ASL, Sylvain Bellenger and Ciro Verdoliva.

Social, health and cultural workshops and events

This new house will be a structure entirely dedicated to improve health and well-being of the individual through a series of well thought out and planned initiatives. They will be of a socio-sanitary and also cultural type, articulated in a rich program with one or more events almost every day.

Among other things, educational workshops are planned that recommend:

  • the correct lifestyles to adopt;
