Capodimonte

 

(Capodimonte National Museum and Galleries), in Naples, one of the largest art museums of Italy, founded in 1738. It is located in the former Royal Palace of Capodimonte (1738, architect G. A. Medrano; reconstructed, 1952–57). It includes mainly the art collections of the Farnese princes and the Neapolitan kings. The museum houses European art from the 13th to the 19th century. There are paintings by Simone Martini, Masaccio, Giovanni Bellini, Parmigianino, Titian, P. Brueghel, and El Greco, as well as sculptures by A. Pollaiuolo and Bologna. The museum houses Italy’s best collections of 17th-century Italian paintings, European and Oriental ceramics, weapons, furniture, and decorative fabrics.

The Neapolitan topography evoked in Striano's narrative, linking Capodimonte (Mountain Top) to Piedigrotta (literally, the "foot of the grotto," defining the area of Naples adjacent to an ancient Roman tunnel where the Church of Santa Maria di Piedigrotta was erected), visually demonstrates that the feast is indeed controlled from above by a naturalized and therefore unquestioned show of choreographed power, represented by the Monarchy and the Church:
