EXHIBITION NAPOLI NAPOLI. DI LAVA, PORCELLANA E MUSICA
@ MUSEO DI CAPODIMONTE until SEPTEMBER 20th 2020
The exhibition Napoli Napoli. Di lava, porcellana e musica is promoted by the Museo e Real Bosco di Capodimonte in collaboration with Teatro di San Carlo di Napoli and curated by Sylvain Bellenger. This spectacular exhibition is the third act of a trilogy designed to evolve the museum’s Permanent Collection following the exhibitions “Carta Bianca. Capodimonte Imaginaire” and “Depositi di Capodimonte. Storie ancora da scrivere” (fully highlighted by My Country magazine).
The Royal Apartments boast 18 halls of which have become a unique setting and a multi-sensory journey placed in 18thcentury Napoli created by the artist Hubert le Gall. Each hall follows a different theme ranging from sacred music, politics and succession of dynasties, the Grand Tour, ironic wigs and to the art of embroidery and sewing including paintings, musical instruments, furnishings, more than 100 costumes and 500 porcelain artefacts.
Precious porcelains are staged together with intricate costumes taken directly from the dressmaker’s workshop of the theatre Teatro di San Carlo selected by Giusi Giustino.
The exhibition represents those fascinating times when the arts were considered as a celebration and splendour was a cornerstone of the new Bourbon reign.
