Special Partnership With The Museo Di Capodimonte
Reasserting the importance of collaborative efforts among European museums, the Musée du Louvre has formed a partnership of unprecedented scope with the Museo di Capodimonte for 2023.

The Museo Di Capodimonte
The royal palace (reggia in Italian), which once served as a hunting lodge for Naples’s Bourbon monarchs, is now one of the largest museums in Italy, as well as one of the most important picture galleries in Europe in terms of both number and quality of works. Capodimonte is one of the few museums in Italy whose collection covers all schools of Italian painting. It also houses the second largest department of drawings (after the Uffizi) and a remarkable collection of porcelain.

The exhibition
Approximately 60 major masterpieces from Capodimonte will be exhibited in three different places in the Louvre.
Salon Carré, Grande Galerie and Salle Rosa (Denon wing, Level 1)
Salle de la Chapelle (Sully wing, Level 1)
Salle de l’Horloge (Sully wing, Level 2)

June 7, 2023 - January 8, 2024
Denon wing: Salon Carré and Grande Galerie
Sully wing: Salle de la Chapelle

June 7 - September 25, 2023
Sully wing: Salle de l’Horloge

Exhibition curators:
Sébastien Allard, director of the Department of Paintings, Musée du Louvre, and Sylvain Bellenger, director of the Museo di Capodimonte.
