The Museum dedicated to Gaetano Filangieri
The birth of the Filangieri Museum is due to Gaetano Filangieri, prince of Satriano and lover of the arts, who transformed, at the end of the nineteenth century, the Palazzo Como in the seat of his personal collection consisting of well 2.500 pieces, among which porcelain, archaeological finds, precious manuscripts, paintings ed weaponry.
In the 2005, following years of neglect, the Filangieri was entrusted to the current director Gianpaolo Leonetti that in the 2012, after 13 years, he reopened it thanks also to the intervention of the Superintendency for Artistic Heritage of Naples.
The halls of the museum are then returned to relive in the 2013 thanks toAssociation Save the Museo Filangieri Onlus which also deals with a constant donation campaign to support the historic museum.
In the 2015 it was reopened to the public, after a long restoration, the Agata Moncada room, located on the first floor and famous for its majolica tiled floor made by Filangieri at the Museo Scuole Officine, which he founded together with Palizzi and Morelli. In this splendid room are kept the porcelains of the famous Perrone Collection, donated to the Museum in the post-war period, and many paintings by Neapolitan authors and not only of different eras.
