The Floridiana Villa in Naples

The villa

The Villa Floridiana, located on the Vomero hill, offers a spectacular view of the Gulf of Naples. The elegant neoclassical villa owes its name to Lucia Migliaccio, Duchess of Floridia and wife of King Ferdinand of Bourbon I, who assigned her to his summer residence.

The Duca di Martina Museum

In 1826 the villa was purchased by the State and from 1931 it became the seat of what is now the Duca di Martina Museum. It houses about 7000 works, datable between the twelfth and nineteenth centuries, by both western and eastern manufacture (majolica, corals, European and Chinese porcelain, among others) that, in the second half of the 800, were collected by the Duke of Martina, Placido de Sangro and donated, at his death, by the namesake nephew to the city of Naples.
