Naples in Paris, the new Exhibition of the Louvre Museum !

The new exhibition at the Louvre Museum showcases Italian art, particularly the art of one of Italy's most beautiful cities, Naples!

The "Naples in Paris" exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Louvre Museum and the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. The cultural and artistic treasures of Naples take center stage through a carefully curated selection that provides a comprehensive overview of the city's artistic evolution.

Upon entering the exhibition, you will be immediately transported to Naples through a magnificent life-size replica of the Gulf of Naples. Beautifully designed thematic rooms will allow you to admire masterpieces from different artistic periods. The selected artworks span a wide range of time, from antiquity to the contemporary era. You will have the opportunity to admire sculptures, paintings, crafts, jewelry, and other precious artworks. Renowned artists such as Caravaggio, Luca Giordano, and Salvator Rosa are prominently featured, showcasing the significant influence of Naples on the world of art in Italy and internationally.

Indeed, a remarkable aspect of the exhibition is its emphasis on Naples' influence on European culture. Neapolitan art played a significant role in the development of different artistic movements, such as Baroque and Romanticism. You will have the chance to appreciate unique artistic techniques, recurring themes, and distinctive styles of Naples throughout various historical periods. You may recognize characteristics present in French artistic creations, but not exclusively so.

In addition to the artworks, the exhibition offers audiovisual projections, historical photographs, and archival documents, providing a more comprehensive context to understand Naples' artistic and cultural history.

"The 'Naples in Paris' exhibition is a unique opportunity to discover the richness of Neapolitan art without leaving the French capital," says Marie-Laure de Rochebrune, curator at the Louvre Museum. "We are delighted to collaborate with the National Archaeological Museum of Naples to present these artistic treasures to the Parisian public."

The "Naples in Paris" exhibition is open to the public until August 31, 2023. It is recommended to book your tickets in advance due to the expected high turnout. The Louvre Museum also offers guided tours of the exhibition, providing an even more enriching experience.

Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to immerse yourself in Neapolitan art and culture in the heart of Paris.

Our reception team is available to provide information and assist you in organizing your visit.
