History of Museo Di Capodimonte

History of Museo Di Capodimonte

The Museo Nazionale Di Capodimonte has a long history, as it was first constructed as a grand palace for the king of Naples and Sicily in 1738. The palace was built not only to accommodate his court, but also to display his beautiful Farnese art collection. Between 1738 and 1787, the palace was expanded and began to house a lot of other artworks, after which a laboratory was built here to work on the restoration of these paintings.

In 1799, the Parthenopean Republic was declared, and as a result, the king fled to Palermo along with a lot of the valuable items and artefacts from the palace-turned-museum. The rest of the things were also stolen by the French troops. However, it was during the French reoccupation between 1806 to 1815, that the art collection was transferred to the Naples National Archaeological Museum. The palace was also redecorated by painters and sculptors, and was finally completed in 1840. Upon its completion, the palace also housed a gallery with contemporary art. It was after the end of the monarchy, in the year 1950, when the palace was officially turned into a national museum and came to be known as Museo Nazionale Di Capodimonte.
