Epigraphic Collection

Beginning in the 18th century, the National Archaeological Museum of Naples amassed a vast epigraphic collection through both antiquarian market acquisitions and discoveries. From the 6th century BC to the 2nd century AD, it provides a snapshot of the main languages spoken in Central and Southern Italy. The documents can be found in Latin and other Italian languages.

Campania in the Roman Age

Placed on the ground floor and consisting of almost 200 objects, the Campania in the Roman Age is a new exhibition that aims to reproduce some of the old decorative elements from the early imperial ages. Sculptures from ancient Capua's amphitheater, wall frescoes from Herculaneum's basilica, and the world-famous bronze quadriga from Herculaneum, which has never been seen before, are some of the items on display.

Farnese Collection

The Farnese collection is a famous collection from the Renaissance Era. It arose from the powerful Roman family’s zealous acquisition policy, which was carried out in a variety of ways, including antiquarian market deals, confiscations, and archeological digs, all of which provided important sources of valuable marbles and sculptures for the family manors’ decoration. The Farnese collection was first started by Alexander Farnese who later became Pope Paul III around 1534.

Farnese Gems

Gemstones from other famous private collections of the 15th century, particularly those formed by Venetian pope Paolo II Barbo and Lorenzo de Medici, were incorporated into the Farnese collection. The original core was supplemented by the gemstones collected by cardinals Ranuccio and Alessandro Farnese, as well as their librarian Fulvio Orsini. You can find these gems as a part of the Farnese Collection on the ground floor itself.

Daily Life Objects From the Vesuvian Area

When Pompeii and Herculaneum were discovered in the 18th century, they contributed significantly to our knowledge of a previously unknown aspect of classical antiquity: ancient Roman daily life. The excavation of various sites led to the discovery of many public buildings, private houses, frescoes and mosaics. It also led to the discovery of enormous amounts of cookware, pottery, furniture, and other artifacts.

Mosaics

The National Archeological Museum of Naples has a fantastic mosaic collection, the majority of which were discovered in Pompeii and other Vesuvian cities. Among the most famous works of art are the Alexander Mosaic, which depicts Alexander the Great fighting Darius III of Persia in 100 BC, and another piece depicting a gladiator fight.

Secret Room

The Secret Room is a one-of-a-kind collection of 250 sexually themed artifacts unearthed during Pompeii and Herculaneum excavations. Over the centuries, the collection was alternately censored and physically separated from the other collections due to the embarrassment caused by the exhibition of "obscene" and "pornographic" objects, reflecting a more or less liberal political scene as well as various museum directors. It was finally reopened to the public in 2000.

Numismatic Collection

From the first coins minted in Magna Graecia to examples issued in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, the museum’s numismatic collection spans centuries. They were acquired as part of private collections, such as the Farnese, Borgia, and Santangelo ones, or as a result of excavations in the Vesuvian area and in Southern Italian regions, and became part of the museum’s heritage.
