Antonio Canova's work was once a hit with popes and emperors – even Napoleon was in awe of the Italian's stunning sculptures. Now, 200 years after his death, he's just as revered by art buffs and Instagrammers alike.
This exhibition brings together 12 of the neo-classical master's large marble works and 110 pieces in total, made possible by a series of collaborations started in 2017 with Russia's State Hermitage Museum.
With large models, plaster casts, bas-reliefs, models and drawings, the National Archaeological Museum of Naples connects Canova's sublime work with the ancient art and models that inspired masterpieces such as The Three Graces and Love and Psyche
Witness treasure from Herculaneum and Pompeii in one of the world's most amazing collections of ancient exhibits. See mosaics from Pompeii's Casa del Fauno, the famed Toro Farnese (Farnese Bull) sculpture and more!
Step into this old cavalry barracks and former university for an insight into Naples' past and mind-blowing Greco-Roman artefacts.
The Naples' National Archaeological Museum was established in the late 18th century by the Bourbon king Charles VII, ultimately to house the antique treasures handed down to him from his mother!
Explore artifacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum and don't miss the Toro Farnese (Farnese Bull) sculpture, or the iconic statue of Atlas with a globe on his shoulders in the first-floor library.
There are also stunning mosaics, bronzes, glassworks, ceramics and engraved coppers from Pompeii, Herculaneum and other ancient cultures. And down in the basement you'll find the Borgia collection of Egyptian relics and epigraphs.
It's a history fix like no other in Naples!
