Located in the stunning Villa Floridiana’s park, the museum has been home to one of the major Italian collections of decorative arts since 1931. It includes over 6000 pieces, mostly ceramics, dating from the 12th to the 19th century. The collection which gives the museum its name, was established in the second half of the 19th century by Placido de Sangro, Duke of Martina, and donated in 1911 to the city of Naples by his heirs.
